Meet Hitch (Will Smith), New York City's greatest matchmaker. Love is his job and he'll get you the girl of your dreams in just three easy dates, guaranteed! And that's exactly what happens when Albert Brennaman (TV's Kevin James, "The King of Queens") wins the heart of gorgeous society heiress Allegra Cole (supermodel Amber Valletta). So when tabloid columnist Sara Melas (Eva Mendes, Stuck On You, Once Upon a Time in Mexico) decides to uncover the secret behind the tubby schlub's success, she's shocked to discover that Alex Hitchens, the charming young man she's been seeing, is the legendary date doctor himself. Exposed in a front-page scoop, it's now up to Alex to try to save Albert and Allegra's relationship as well as his own. Which only goes to show that just when you think you've found true love, there's always a HITCH.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Hitch is a 2005 romantic comedy in which Will Smith plays a "date doctor" who falls in love with a gossip columnist. Hitch starts out the movie as a suave "pick-up artist" who teaches socially awkward guys how to meet and woo the girl of their dreams. As the movie goes on, it debates whether "date doctors" like him are manipulative creeps teaching underhanded techniques to lonely guys, or if what he's offering is a chance for nice guys who never seem to "get the girl" to overcome their shyness and lack of self-confidence and get dates. The answer to this debate, borne out of the direct experiences of the characters in the movie, suggests that love and attraction can't be won with formulas and guidelines. There's one male character who is very sleazy and tries to enlist Hitch to help him "bang" a woman for a one-night stand. There is some profanity, including "f--k." A woman chugs a bottle of wine while in the middle of an argument with a potential romantic interest.
