Will Smith plays the ”Date Doctor,” who offers tips to hapless bachelors. His latest is a tubby nerd (Kevin James) who’s fallen for a socialite. You’d think she’d be out of his league — but not with the right coaching! Hitch pretends to be a wry observational comedy, but it plods past the diversion zone.
