Why would Will Smith's character Hitch be seeking forgiveness at the end of the movie when in-fact, Eva Mendes is the one who should apologize to him?
This bugged me for a very long time, because it does not make any common sense, unless there is a deleted scene, or something above my level of understanding.
At some point in the movie, Eva Mendes finds out that one of her friends was raped by someone who used the services of Will Smith. She then suspects that he is some sort of a pimp, and tries to set him up.
When she confronts him about it, we clearly see that he is hurt and was mistakenly, and wrongfully accused. He storms out of the scene angry. But then comes back to Eva Mendes while she is packing her stuff, and tries to convince her to stay with him.
We see no evidence of regret by Eva Mendes for her wrong assumption, and even worse, while he is "apologizing" and trying to make her stay, she makes him (and us) think that the other man with her is her new boyfriend.
Has no one else asked the same question?
