Men love Will Smith; they also love Eva Mendez, so this movie is a safe bet. It’s great when a romantic comedy is told from the perspective of a man.

The tables are turned however, when Dr. Hitch meets a gossip columnist named Sara Melas, played by Mendez.

Pots and pan are constantly being flung across room.

This rom-com stands out from many others because the story is realistic and lacks a lot of the cliches that you usually see in such films.
8. About Time
Not all romantic comedies need to have dashingly handsome male leads. Sometimes a dorky and relatable stuttering British man is the reason guys are so drawn to this movie.
