In this movie there was an interpersonal conflict between two people. The interpersonal conflict was due to communication. Communication is a key role in any relationship, whether platonic or intimate relationship. When you enter in or start a relationship you need to be able to communicate effectively. If you do not communicate effectively then that would cause the relationship to have an interpersonal conflict. The interpersonal conflict in the movie Hitch is miscommunication/misunderstanding. The main characters Hitch and Sara have a fight that could have been avoided had they communicated. It takes them awhile to talk things out and communicate. In the end they do communicate and work things out. Communication is most important to a good relationship. In the movie Hitch the interpersonal conflict that I chose was the one between Alex (Hitch) Hitchings and Sara Melas. In the movie they start dating until Sara finds out that Hitch is the “date doctor” whom she thinks is responsible for her friend getting dumped. When Sara finds out she goes on her date with Hitch and she tells him that she knows what he does and doesn’t give him time to explain himself.
Hitch shows up at a speed- dating thing where they exchange words but still don’t get things worked out. Later Sara goes to Hitch’s house to say she is sorry but he just blows her off. Then in their next meeting they actually work things, they had decided to talk things over about the situation out and all is well. I think that if Sara and Hitch would have been honest in the first place or had communicated with each other in the first place then they could have worked things out a lot sooner. Hitch could have communicate to Sara even a little more about what his job included then she could have been prepared. If Sara could have stayed at Hitch’s house and listened to what his explanation of the situation at hand instead of just leaving and communicated at all. Just talking things out instead of fighting then they would have had more time to get to know each other. If you are going to be in a relationship you need to be prepared to communicate you thoughts and feelings. If Alex and Sara had communicated then they wouldn’t have had such a big fight as they did or they may not have fought at all.
