* [[WhyWouldAnyoneTakeHimBack Why Would Anyone Take Her Back?]]: By the end of the film, Sara has almost ruined Hitch's career, publicly humiliated Allegra and Albert and nearly broke them up as well, and - as FridgeHorror explains - there's no telling how many couples around New York may have split up over paranoia that the man of the couple had help from Hitch, many of the being married if Hitch's memento wall of wedding invitations is any evidence. She also did all this without ''ever'' trying to get the facts about Hitch straight or asking for his side of the story, and come the end of the film hasn't apologized for anything she's done. Yet, the final scene has ''Hitch'' begging for forgiveness from ''her''. Things should really be the other way around.
** She did sort of apologize, but she did so with the "I didn't mean to hurt you" line, which is a bald-faced lie. She was actively trying to run him into the ground to avenge Casey's honor, that was the whole point of her article. She only backtracked when his ReasonYouSuckSpeech laid out that a) Vance lied to her about Hitch's involvement, b) his job is to get decent men on the radars of women who would otherwise never give them the time of day, and c) that Vance and his kind are the reason Hitch had a career in the first place, since handsome assholes like Vance always take attention away from plainer but more upstanding individuals like Albert. She also never apologized onscreen to Albert or Allegra for defaming him and embarrassing her respectively. Considering she was allowed to attend their wedding, one can assume she did make amends at some point, but we never get to see that. Considering she also is never even threatened with losing her job as a journalist for publishing a libelous article that she didn't fact-check, during which she publicly humiliated a very wealthy, well-connected woman who had every right to sue the paper for defamation, but didn't for whatever reason, Sarah is practically a KarmaHoudini.
** Sara also ran with the article as revenge for believing that Hitch was trying to manipulate her - which really adds an even more sour note to the movie, as it shows that she thought he only did things such as the Ellis island trip to bed her, instead of because he really liked her. Don't forget that she ''did'' destroy his business (which was based entirely on word-of-mouth and an extraordinary level of discretion on the part of all concerned - and as what he was doing wasn't illegal, if this film wasn't going for a 'happy ending', [[RealityEnsues Hitch should have hit Sara, her boss and the paper itself with a lawsuit that would have (at the very least) crippled it financially, caused a]] ''huge'' [[LaserGuidedKarma loss of respect for everyone working there]], and [[HoistByHisOwnPetard ensured that Sara would never, ever work in journalism again.]]

* HoYay: There's one scene where Hitch is showing Albert how to kiss and pretends to be Allegra, and has him practice a good night kiss scenario. Romantic music even plays during the scene.

* RetroactiveRecognition: Vance Munson is played by Jeffrey Donovan, who plays Michael Westen on Series/BurnNotice. Which makes it [[HilariousInHindsight even funnier]] when Hitch manages physically overpower him.

* FridgeBrilliance: Hitch actually does ''exactly'' what he early claimed he does for Albert. His pitch involves telling the men to be themselves ("If you're confident, be confident. If you're shy, be shy") and as he said to Allegra earlier in the scene, she never would have noticed Albert if it wasn't for him. This is only a shocking revelation to Hitch because, as he was called out earlier, he doesn't believe his own pitch.
* FridgeHorror: After Hitch's story is printed in the paper, we see ''one'' couple approach him, the woman suspicious that her boyfriend used Hitch's services to hook up with her. How many ''other'' perfectly happy couples across the city do you think are likely in the exact situation, and you know that not all of them are going to resolve it peacefully.
