Every once in a while I’ll come across a movie that I’ve already seen but forgotten. A girlfriend recently reminded me of “Hitch” and I instantly thought of how much I’d enjoyed it. It’s my kind of movie – a sweet, frothy romantic comedy. Will Smith’s character is smart and adorable and the film is chock full of juicy quotes worth holding on to.
What I most loved about this movie are the gentle reminders throughout that everyone – every single one of us – just wants to be loved … we all want to connect and most of us stumble a little bit on our way to love.
Here’s a favorite quote from Hitch:
“Never lie, steal, cheat, or drink.
But if you must lie, lie in the arms of the one you love.
If you must steal, steal away from bad company.
If you must cheat, cheat death.
And if you must drink, drink in the moments that take your breath away.”
Great words to live by.
