The original Alfie was as much overrated as the remake is underrated. Split the difference.

The weakness is the script (by Elaine Pope, who won an Emmy for Seinfeld and should've done better). It isn't funny, it isn't clever and it certainly isn't profound.

Charles Shyer (who processed the Parent Trap and Father of the Bride updates) plays coy with most matters sexual-an odd and puritanical approach to a character who molds his entire existence around the procurement and enjoyment of sex.

More of a light hearted drama than comedy most of the time. I've not seen the original version but assume this is sexed up a little. Quite a strange… More

It's could be charming, but after see the original Alfie (1966), this remake is a complete trash and silly.

I actually think this is a great movie for what it is. It's not corny or predictable at all, in fact it was pretty surprising. Jude Law was amazing and… More
