* MetaCasting: One of the most defining traits of WillSmith in general is how big of [[TheCharmer a charmer]] he is in real life. Thus casting him as someone who passes on his skills in charming people seems like absolutely perfect casting.

* WhereDaWhiteWomenAt: [[WordOfGod According to]] WillSmith the female lead was intended to be played by a white actress (allegedly Sandra Bullock, whom Smith really wanted to work with), however the studio was afraid of invoking this trope. They also didn't want to cast two black leads, fearing they would alienate white audiences, so the hispanic Mendes was cast to avert both.

* BrokenAce: Hitch is a mild version. Although his job is relationships, he's revealed to avoid them for himself because of a past bad experience, at least until later.

* BreakingTheFourthWall: "Basic principles...[[spoiler:there are none]].
* BrokenAce: Hitch is a mild version. Although his job is relationships, he's revealed to avoid Downplayed but present with Hitch. A bad past relationship experience has sworn him off them for himself because of a past bad experience, at least until later.even though pairing other people is his job.



* TheCharmer: Hitch alternates between this with his (usually male) clients and something of an informed ChivalrousPervert in his personal life, though his intentions towards Sara were more on this side from the start as well.



* TheCharmer: Played with when it comes to Sara. Hitch's dates with Sara always go wrong, which Sara ends up finding charming in an ironic way.
* ChivalrousPervert: Hitch early in the film treats women well (and almost injures Vance Munson for his attitude, including towards women) though uses his prowess for short-term fun rather than relationships until he gets involved with Sara.



* {{Corpsing}}: Watch the dance lesson. Watch "Hitch's" face.

Added DiffLines:

* AsianRudeness: The cashier at the convenience store where Hitch and Sara buy the Benadryl is of Asian descent and quite rude, though his accent is American and Hitch and Sara are too distracted by Hitch's allergy to notice.

The 2005 romantic-comedy starring WillSmith and [[Film/TheSpirit Eva Mendes]].

In New York, there are rumors of a man called "The Date Doctor" who gives advice to UnluckyEverydude on how to get the affections of a lady he admires. It turns out he really does exist--his name is Alex "Hitch" Hitchins (played by Will Smith). He gets hired by Albert Brennaman (Kevin James), who is a meek CPA in love with the beautiful and sweet heiress Allegra Cole (Amber Valletta). Meanwhile, Hitch bumps into Sara Melas (Creator/EvaMendes): a rather cynical gossip columnist, and the two hit it off. Despite all of his expert advice and knowledge of women, all of their dates turn into crazy mishaps. But somewhere in there, they begin to fall for one another...
