Technical Specs


Did You Know?

The mobile phone that Hitch uses to talk to Sara when Albert is getting his back waxed is a Sony Ericsson P900.

Audio/visual unsynchronized: In the scene where Sarah 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 Sarah and her friend eating out of Rice to Riches' iconic plastic bowls with plastic shoehorns.

[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...

User Review

Surprisingly Good


What - a Will Smith movie with nothing blowing up? I was all prepared to hate this movie. I mean c'mon, a chick flick with Will Smith? It seems Will Smith can only play one character - himself - but in this one he tones that down and comes across as a real human being.

I was so surprised by this movie. I ended up laughing through the whole thing and came to care for and relate to all the characters.

There was NOTHING about racial stereotypes. It wasn't about a black guy teaching a white guy to dance at all. It was about a bunch of characters who legitimately grow from the first scene to the last.

Take you girlfriend and go!
