"Hitch" Humorously Bridges Gap Between the Sexes
- Thursday, February 10, 2005
Kevin Bisch’s script – his first – is a witty one, with some great one-liners. It doesn’t do anything wild with the romantic comedy genre, which follows the typical plot arc of girl meets boy, girl loses boy, girl and boy live happily ever after. But, after all, it is Valentines’ Day, and that’s what this kind of film is created for. It’s definitely adult humor, but unlike many films, “Hitch” manages to bridge the gap between men and women and will make both laugh. Whether they’re experienced or have no game at all, men will definitely recognize themselves. And women will recognize all the men they’ve dated.
So take your loved one and enjoy the joke about the crazy mating game we all play, as we tackle the increasingly difficult task of getting hitched.
AUDIENCE: Adults only
- Drugs/Alcohol Content: Several scenes in bars/restaurants where characters drink, with background smoking; wedding scene with champagne toast.
- Language/Profanity: About a dozen obscenities (including one f- and one rude gesture) and half a dozen mostly mild profanities.
- Sexual Content/Nudity: Brief shot of couple in bed; men appear interested in women in bar (including a married man, but he refuses to them) and send over drinks, try pick-up lines, etc.; woman states that she hasn’t been “ridden in weeks;” another woman states that she hasn’t “gotten laid in a year;” male character refers to a “titty bar;” another talks about “banging her” (but is soundly rebuked by main character).
- Violence: Physical humor where men wrestle on floor and on massage table, man breaks vase and falls to floor then slips on marbles; man jumps on/falls off car.
