Go To

  • 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 Him Back?: By the end of the film, Sara has almost ruined Hitch's career, publicly humiliated him as well as Allegra and Albert, 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 them being married if Hitch's memento wall of wedding invitations is any evidence. She also did all this without ever trying to get Hitch's side of things, and in the process published a story without fact-checking it, a story that humiliates a wealthy and influential New Yorker. The final scene has Hitch begging for forgiveness from Sara for some reason.
