Tonight I went to see Will Smith's new movie, Hitch.

This is a romantic comedy, but the emphasis should be on the word comedy. This isn't the same kind of sappy fare as a Meg Ryan film. This movie is not the sort of film that should be overly scrutinized. The user comment on the Internet Movie Database sums it up well when it declares: Very Entertaining, Funny, Pretty Original Story.

As for my comments ... well ... I got my money's worth in the first five minutes. The opening scene features Will Smith -- possibly the coolest man in America. It also features not one ... but two dachshunds. That scene alone was worth $8 to me.
