I agree that this movie is fluff, and it is entertaining enough to sit down for a couple hours and watch it.
I wish I could leave it there, but I just can’t. At least a few people were involved with creating this story and then deciding if the movie should have been made. They decided what the movie should be about. Seriously, what were they thinking?
Actually, the movie starts out wonderfully. There are men that don’t quite get how to act around the women that they are attracted to. Our boy Hitch does a great job of coaching them to have confidence and to get noticed by the ladies.
But the movie ends by completely dismissing that these men needed help. “Just be yourself, and that’s OK. No need for improvement. The improvement has actually gotten in the way. Be a groveling, whiny bitch, and it’ll work out!”
Bah-low-nee! There is some truth to the “be yourself” part, but you are not helping yourself if you don’t have the confidence to stand out and get your potential mate’s attention.
So watch it for entertainment and amusement. And take advice from the story when it’s not advocating that you rid yourself of your masculinity. But mostly watch it for entertainment and amusement.
