21 mistakes

Directed by: Andy Tennant

Starring: Adam Arkin, Amber Valletta, Eva Mendes, Kevin James, Will Smith

Genres: Comedy, Romance

Continuity mistake: Right after Hitch has his bout with food poisoning and he's talking to Sara on the couch, her hair changes. For most of her speech about her sister falling through the ice, the hair on the right side of her face is behind her shoulder. Towards the end of the story it goes in front of her shoulder and then at the end it's back behind it.

Ian Hunt

Continuity mistake: When Hitch and Albert meet for the first time, the spot of mustard on Albert's cheek changes size from small to large and back down to small.


Continuity mistake: When Sara arrives at the marina to meet Hitch for their breakfast date, it's supposed to be 7:00 AM. However, the sun is bright & almost directly overheard, as shown by the shadows on their faces, illustrating it was really close to mid-day during filming.

Continuity mistake: During Hitch's flashback at the college while he speaks with the girl on the stairs, the sun changes between shots.


Other mistake: In the scene where Hitch first meets Vance Munson, when Vance is pouring the bottle, the liquid pours and stays level at the same time.

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the movie, Hitch is talking to Sara on the street. If you watch behind her, you will see the same young man in blue satin shorts walk behind her twice.


Visible crew/equipment: When Sara meets Hitch for first time at the bar you can see on Sara's glasses the lights of the set.


Continuity mistake: When Hitch and Albert meet for the first time, the sun changes between shots.


Revealing mistake: in the scene where Hitch first meets Albert, Albert spills his soda. The can shoots open and spills over the steps. If you look closely the label on the can is upside down. This would be fine if the coke was spilling out of it but it shoots out and when he picks it back up it is still upside down.

Continuity mistake: When Hitch is watching Albert for first time, Albert start to clean the spot of mustard in the scene (we can see him from behind) but it is not until the next shot he takes a piece of paper to clean it.

Continuity mistake: When Hitch and Sara kiss the first time, Hitch moves his arm up three different times. Most noticeable in the far away shot.

Continuity mistake: When Hitch takes a cab to see Allegra, in the close-up a man crossing the street from left to right suddenly appears.


Audio problem: After the article about Hitch is printed, we see him leave is apartment block and get approached by a former client and his now partner. After Hitch says, "See ya later, Tony", we hear Tony's Partner say, "Look Tony," however, her lips do not move.


Plot hole: In the part where Allegra is speaking to Albert in his office doorway and Hitch slips the pen in his pocket, how did he know she looked away? He's behind a solid door.

Continuity mistake: When Hitch is in college and meets a girl, he has his glasses on. From the angle behind they're off.


Other mistake: In the scene at Ellis Island where Sarah is looking at the immigration book with Hitch, the security guard looks straight at the camera for a brief moment.

Revealing mistake: When Hitch is wearing the fat face mask you can see where it has pulled away from his skin right next to his right eye.

Ian Hunt

Continuity mistake: Near the end after Hitch jumped on the Mini when they are talking; watch behind Sara, the car disappears and reappears several times.

Ronnie Bischof

Continuity mistake: In the scene in Albert's office, immediatly afer he quits his job, his tie keeps swapping from straight to sideways.

Continuity mistake: During the first time Kevin James and Will Smith meet, Kevin drops a coke and it spills all over the steps in a certain way. However, when Will actually comes over to Kevin, the spill pattern on the steps has changed.

Hitch: Never lie, steal, cheat or drink. But if you must lie, lie in the arms of the one you love. If you must steal, steal away from bad company. If you must cheat, cheat death. And if you must drink, drink in the moments that take your breath away.



Robinne Lee plays a past lover of Hitch, who we only see in flashbacks. The same actress is also in the movie Seven Pounds, and again plays a past lover of a Will Smith character, and again is only seen in flashbacks.
