Trivia

Allegra Coleman was a fictitious actress created by Esquire magazine in their Nov '96 issue, designed to spoof other magazine's fawning obsession with new stars. The article written about her new "It Girl" status prompted calls from studios and talent scouts eager to offer her scripts. Ali Larter provided the face and body shots for the faux starlet.

Goofs

When Hitch kicks Sara off of the Jetski, she falls right next to it. When the camera goes further out, she is quite a bit farther away from the Jetski. When the camera goes back, she's close to it again. 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...

Cute date movie for Valentine's Day
10 February 2005 | by (Memphis, Tennessee) – See all my reviews

In this romantic comedy, Alex 'Hitch' Hitchins (Will Smith) is a legendary but anonymous date doctor in New York City. Hitch advises klutzy male wallflower clients on ways to make good first impressions on the women of their dreams. To contact Hitch, a man must have a referral from one of his former clients. Once Hitch accepts you as a client, he will coach you on your first three dates; after that, you're on your own. Hitch's newest client is Albert Brennaman (Kevin James), a fat tax accountant in love with a celebrity client, Allegra Cole (Amber Valetta). Allegra doesn't know that Albert exists, so Albert contacts Hitch to make his dream come true. Hitch decides to make Albert a client, even though, he knows this is going to be tough. While working on this job, Hitch meets Sara Melas (Eva Mendes), a gossip reporter for a daily tabloid, who is following Allegra's every move. Sara has given up on men, and Hitch wants to cut through that layer, because he is the master of love, so he thinks. With Valentine's Day around the corner, this is a good date movie. Women will love it, and men may pick up a few pointers. The movie is hilarious and filled with verbal and slapstick comedy from beginning to end. There are several scenes that may make you bust a gut laughing. (Columbia, Run time 1:55, Rated PG-13)(8/10)
