Did You Know?

Trivia

Before Hitch shows Sara her relative's signature at Ellis Island, he tells her, "You can't really know where you're going until you know where you've been." Will Smith says this same line in the intro of his Will 2K music video. See more »

Goofs

When Sara and her friend are dining in the restaurant Rice to Riches, you can clearly hear the clink of cutlery against dishes in the background. However, all the dish ware in Rice to Riches is plastic, and thus would not make such a sound. You can clearly see Sara and her friend eating out of Rice to Riches' iconic plastic bowls with plastic shoehorns. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Hitch: Basic principles: no woman wakes up saying, "God, I hope I don't get swept off my feet today!" Now, she might say, "This is a really bad time for me," or something like, "I just need some space," or my personal favorite, "I'm really into my career right now." You believe that? Neither does she. You know why? Because she's lying to you, that's why. You understand me? Lying! It's not a bad time for her. She doesn't need any space. And she may be into her career, but what she's really...

Very Entertaining
11 February 2005 | by cd_airmcnairSee all my reviews

This film was not about stereotypes, nor dance moves, nor pickup lines, really. This film was about the vulnerability of peoples' hearts. It was hard to believe that Kevin James could play in a convincing role, that Will Smith could satisfy without action, and that such a hackneyed genre of film could succeed in such a way. I don't intend to sound overly endeared with this film - it wasn't "groundbreaking" in any sort of way - but it was a film worth seeing. Was it believable? No. New York couldn't be so simple and there has been no human being in the history of mankind that has the "hutzpah" of Hitch. Sure, there are bar-studs, but not ones that can get any chick, at any time - excluding those raking in seven figures, of course. The thing that worked best for this film was its true focus on the dramatic side of things, not just on the comedy. It was a funny two hours, no doubt. But it was also two hours that made you sit in your seat, become immersed in the characters, and smile.
