The romantic comedy is not bad. One can understand and believe the attraction between the two characters. Will Smith’s character is hunky, clever, confident, successful and wealthy. Margot Robbie’s character is gorgeous, sexy, vulnerable, clever and charming. Will Smith is back in Hitch: How to Get the Girl, Also Some Cash. There’s overwhelming opulence, exotic setting and beautiful ladies at display here for the grand dramatization of thievery. It showcases a glamorous lifestyle, riches and ladies, portrayed by the charismatic leads. However, the movie recycles this material too often and having too much investment in lovey-dovey banters does wear the tension thin.
Nicky (Will Smith), a veteran con artist, takes a novice named Jess (Margot Robbie) under his wing. While Nicky teaches Jess the tricks of the trade, the pair become romantically involved; but, when Jess gets uncomfortably close, Nicky ends their relationship.
