Revision Review of Hitch While the movie Hitch captures its audience by providing comic relief and relationship advice, there are aspects and parts in the movie that could be improved to provide more enjoyment to the viewers. The plot line is well-developed overall as it is a typical romantic comedy, yet it can be too predictable at times. From the moment when actors Will Smith, who plays Alex Hitchens and Eva Mendes, who plays Sara Melas meet, there was an instant attraction, and from that moment forward, the audience is able to predict the way the movie will transpire.

The chemistry begins as boy meets girl, in a stereotypical location, a bar. While the other main couple, Albert Brenaman and Allegra Cole encounter each other at work.

There may be love at the first encounter and relationships flourish, but it doesn’t always go smoothly.

An example of a conflict in Hitch is when the love stories intertwine and the news breaks out that Alex Hitchens is the Date Doctor. He is the one who sets up men to use women, or so the ladies think. In reality the girls who have been affected by Hitch due to his relationship advice, actually did fall in love and they may not have ever met their soul mate without Hitch. Even though there was conflict and it seemed as though the relationship would fall apart, you did a good job of continuing the script to create that happily ever
