Movie Summary

Andy Tennant

Alex 'Hitch"Hitchens is an undercover professional 'date doctor, whose job is to help men perfect their wooing tactics. When one of Hitch's potential clients, a die-hard player without a tactful bone in his body, has a one night stand with gossip columnist Sara's best friend, Sara takes it upon herself to uncover the true identity of the date doctor. If she succeeds, however, it could mean the end for some of the relationships Hitch helped to forge, including that between insecure, overweight Albert Brennaman and celebrity Allegra Cole.

Metacritic Score

  • 70

    Los Angeles Times Carina Chocano

    Romantic comedies have become so cannibalistic lately that Hitch stands out for what seem like major innovations by comparison.

  • 60

    The New York Times Dana Stevens

    An average romantic comedy put together with enough professionalism to keep your cynicism momentarily at bay, featuring good-looking actors who also, in this case, seem like pretty...

  • 50


    Considerably heavier on romance than comedy, Hitch stitches together relatively few laughs but generates enough goodwill and energy.
