Hitch | 2005 | PG-13 | - 5.3.5

Romantic comedy starring Will Smith as a professional "romance consultant," ostensibly helping men overcome their fear of approaching women for whom they have deep feelings. His business is threatened, however, when he falls for a female journalist (Eva Mendes) who uncovers his real identity and plans to expose his methods as fraudulent. Also with Kevin James, Michael Rapaport and Ato Essandoh. Directed by Andy Tennant. [1:55]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - A man and a woman kiss passionately in a car, while another man watches and pounds on the window. A man and a woman kiss several times while standing in darkened library stacks, a man and a woman kiss and hug, and men and women kiss in numerous scenes (several passionate and others tender and romantic). A man teaches another man about "first kissing": the two men get very close to each other, one kisses the other on the lips, and the man who was kissed yells and storms off. A woman kisses another woman on the forehead -- in a friendly way. A man and a woman hug.
 A man and a woman wake up in bed together; it is implied that they have had sex (the man is bare chested and we see the woman's bare shoulders as she turns over and caresses the man's chest). A man and a woman sleep on a sofa together (at opposite ends). A woman sits on a man's lap and wraps her arms around his neck in a photo booth.
 A man talks, in very crude terms, about wanting to have sex with a woman in order to get her off his mind. A woman talks about not having "been ridden in months," and another woman complains that she has not had sex in a year. Men talk about what attracts them to a particular woman in several scenes. A man talks to a woman in a bar and appears to be trying to seduce her. A man and a woman flirt in several scenes. A man and a woman talk about being jaded by disingenuous people who feign interest in romance. A man talks about his partner being another man. A man asks a woman if another man is gay. Two men compare their lives; one is married and talks about what a wonderful feeling it is to be in a stable relationship while the other talks about liking the excitement of being with different women every night. A man talks about "first kisses" in several scenes.
 A man takes off his pants to dry them and we see him in his jockey shorts, with bare legs. Women wear low-cut tops and dresses that reveal cleavage, bare shoulders and backs in several scenes and in one scene a dress is cut down to the woman's abdomen. Also women wear short skirts that reveal bare thighs. A man bends over to pick something up and his buttocks are near another man's face. A man admires a woman's bare legs as she walks toward him in a short skirt. Two men admire two women from a distance. Men and women dance together.
 A man makes a sexual gesture with his arm.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A man grabs another man's arm, who then twists him around, slams him onto a table and threatens him. A woman knees a man in the groin, he bends over and leans against a huge statue of a bull (the man's head rests between the buttocks cheeks of the statue). A man tackles a man, pushes him onto a couch and begins strangling him. A man kicks a woman in the face knocking her off a skidoo into a river (we see her later with a bruise on her forehead). A man slaps a man in the face twice.
 A man grabs another man who tries to leave a room, they struggle knocking into furniture and breaking things. A man tears up a newsstand and is arrested. A man presses down on a sink breaking it free from the wall; water sprays on him and wets his pants. A man knocks over a vase that breaks, spilling marbles on the floor, he slips on the marbles and falls hard on the floor.
 A man jumps on top of a moving car and falls hard onto the street when the car stops (he does not appear injured). A man's shirt gets caught in a taxi door and is ripped off as the taxi drives away.
 A man faints and slips down a wall onto the floor. A man uses an inhaler a few times when he appears to have trouble breathing. A man lies in a street holding a dog in front of a taxi, pretending that he has been hit.
 A man has an allergic reaction to seafood, his face and ears swell up and we see sores on his face. A man has his back waxed and he screams when the strips are torn off. A man spills food and soda on himself in a few scenes.
 A woman throws vegetables at a man, he throws a salad on her and they argue bitterly. A man yells at his boss and quits his job. A man and a woman yell at each other.
 We hear that a man's name was "the butcher" and that he was wanted by the police for murder. A woman talks about her younger sister having almost died when she fell through a hole in an ice-covered pond.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
