YMMV / Hitch

  • Funny Moments: Several, most notably Albert's dancing prowess and Hitch's food allergy incident. The end credits feature the entire cast dancing insanely at Albert and Allegra's wedding.
  • Heartwarming Moments: When Albert and Allegra and Hitch and Sara reconcile.
  • Ho Yay: 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. Hilarity Ensues when Albert actually kisses him and Hitch reacts with horror and disgust.
  • Moment of Awesome: Albert's display of "Shock and Awe".
  • Retroactive Recognition: Vance Munson is played by Jeffrey Donovan, who plays Michael Westen on Burn Notice. Which makes it even funnier when Hitch manages to physically overpower him.
  • Strawman Has a Point: The title character makes some very valid points about continuing with one's life, adapting, and moving on after a relationship goes sour. He gets called out on this by one of his clients who outright calls him a coward for not chasing after one's love; granted, in the client's case, the breakup was because of a misunderstanding, but on Hitch's case there was a very clear and valid reason for it. As expected, since the film is a Romantic Comedy, Hitch gives in and goes great lengths to get back his love interest even after several rejections, incurring extreme behavior and injuries to himself. Try imagining how that would work in Real Life.
  • 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 Fridge Horror 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 "Reason You Suck" Speech 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 Karma Houdini.
