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.

Character error 

In the opening narration Hitch says that communication is 60% body language and 30% is your tone meaning 90% of what you're saying "aint coming out of your mouth" However tone refers to the tone of your voice which does in fact come out of your mouth.

Continuity 

After Alex and Sara finish their first date and she gets into the taxi, Alex's shirt gets caught in the taxi door and it rips; it doesn't just slip off of him. When they meet again at the fish restaurant, Sara returns Alex's shirt (it appears to have been dry cleaned) and it is not ripped.
When Hitch suffers from food allergy the right side of his face and his right ear are shown to swell up. This is shown also in the pharmacy scene but when they get outside and he is drinking from the medicine bottle with a straw his swollen ear and reduced puffy face are on his left side.
When Allegra boards her yacht, she removes her shoes and walks up a boarding ramp. After her short conversation with Hitch, Albert steps up onto the deck before attacking Hitch. When Hitch leaves the yacht minutes later, he has to step up to disembark and the boarding ramp is un-attached and lying flat on the dock. For the amount of real time involved, any tide change would be negligible, the boarding ramp would still be in place, and Hitch would walk down it to get on the dock.

When he helps Albert win over Allegra, Hitch prepares Albert for the first kiss to be on the second date (their first date is the Sky Studios fashion event, the second is the Knicks game, after which they have their first kiss).

Factual errors 

When Sarah is trying to drive the manual transmission car near the end of the film, a shot is shown of her pushing down the gas pedal and the car taking off. However, her left foot is not on the clutch at all. With a manual transmission, the car would have stalled without having the clutch pushed in and then gradually releasing it while pressing the accelerator.

After Hitch's food allergy, he brings home an assortment of coffee and tea for Sara and himself at her apartment. When he hands her the tea, and when they are each drinking their own coffee/tea, it is obvious that the coffee cups have nothing in them. They clearly hold and drink out of empty cups. When he opens the plastic top, it makes a hollow sound - and is obviously empty.
