(7-Very Good Film)
Light. Charming. Fun.
Alex Hitchens (Smith), a dating consultant, attempts his boldest job yet: setting the clumsy, overweight Albert Brennaman (James) up with dream girl, model, entrepreneur, Allegra Cole (Valletta). At the same time, all of his smooth tactics seem to fail him in his own pursuit of beautiful gossip reporter, Sara (Mendes). Will Smith had the Midas touch at the time. His charisma and star presence, as well as his chemistry with James, elevate this standard romantic comedy to a fun diversion that warrants repeat viewings if you need something pleasant to watch.
