Trivia

Will Smith suggested Kevin James for the role of Albert, being a fan of James' hit series The King of Queens (1998).
According to Will Smith, the female lead was supposed to be Caucasian, but the producers didn't want to make the lead couple interracial as it was considered a taboo. They also didn't want the female lead to be black as they feared it would alienate white audiences, so they decided to go with a Hispanic female lead instead.
Eva Mendes was featured in Will Smith's "Miami" video. She was the girl in the car lip-syncing "Bienvenido a Miami" in the song's chorus. Mendes mentioned this to Smith during rehearsals. But Smith sheepishly admitted that he did not remember her.
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.
Kevin James made up all of the dance moves for the scene where Albert is dancing in Hitch's apartment.

When Hitch first meets Albert, he says "I hope she's single cuz' I don't do breakups." Hitch's specialty as a dating consultant was getting his clients in with women they don't know. David Boreanaz starred in a film called "Mr. Fix-it" who was a date Doctor who's specialty was break-ups; he would learn all he could about what his client's exes didn't like in a man and date them wearing that persona in the hopes of driving them back into their exes arms.

The mobile phone that Hitch uses to talk to Sara when Albert is getting his back waxed is a Sony Ericsson P900.
When Sara confronts Vance (Jefferey Donovan) at his job, fusion/funk music starts to play in the background. The groove is very similar to the theme music for Jeffery's character in the TV series "Burn Notice."
