'Hitch' gives Will Smith a romantic comedy role


Will Smith finally got a chance to strut his romantic-comedy stuff this year in Hitch (Sony, $29).

Smith plays a New York date doctor who guarantees men they can win the girl of their dreams in just three dates. More than holding his own opposite Smith is stand-up comic Kevin James (The King of Queens), who plays a shy accountant madly in love with a society heiress (Amber Valletta). Eva Mendes plays a tabloid columnist who ends up falling for Hitch.

Conspicuously absent is audio commentary from director Andy Tennant, Smith and James -- it would have greatly improved the digital edition.
