Living in a bohemian household shared with 3 like minded spirited people to help pay the rent, his mother tries to establish bonds that he cannot deal with.
She cannot deal with his inability to talk, and enlists the help of other females in his life to share the burden of his upbringing.
" Now, she might say, "This is a really bad time for me," or something like, "I just need some space," or my personal favorite, "I'm really into my career right now." You believe that? Surprisingly, the best thing about Hitch is Kevin James.
His performance is funny and also pretty realistic.
I think it's bad since the story is by-the-numbers and the film takes awhile to reach obvious places.
If it was a little shorter, than it would have been fine.
This movie immediately connected with me, as I saw pieces of myself in "young" people: Abbie (Born 1955), Julie (born 1962) and Jamie (born 1964). The movie features an all-star ensemble cast, with an almost unrecognizable Great Gerwig as Abbie (and on the heels of another outstanding role in the recent "Jackie"), Elle Fanning in perhaps her best role to date as Julie, Billy Crudup as William, and newcomer Lucas Jade Zumann as Jamie. But the biggest applause must go to Annette Bening, who brings perhaps the finest performance of her career as the well-intended but at times confused, sad and/or lonely Dorothea. The movie opened wide this weekend and I couldn't wait to see it.
The only problem I really have with Hitch is that it plays it too safe.
Complications ensue when Sara's latest scoop happens to be one of Alex's clients. Although he helps all these other men, he somehow is not able to have nearly as much success with Sara (Eva Mendes), the woman he himself loves.
After Hitch's food allergy, he brings home an assortment of coffee and tea for Sara and himself at her apartment. Hitch is a safe yet funny and entertaining romantic comedy.
Love, life, and the struggles of a mother bringing up a son in the the late 70's.
The ignorance of a free spirit against the needs of a young man trying to find his true character and beliefs.
