Typical sitcom stuff starring Will Smith as a Manhattan "date doctor" who teaches slobby goofball Kevin James that even he can get a woman.
It's all very suave, polished Hollywood bullshit without being particularly funny or memorable. Smith performs one of his own songs over the credits as per usual but this isn't really a film he should be proud of, from the years in-between Ali & The Pursuit Of Happyness, when he spent his time doing anything for a paycheck.
4/10
