Editorial Reviews

In this remake of the 1966 classic, Jude Law stars as Alfie, the quintessential Don Juan who is rather caught up in himself. Using his charm and a great smile, Alfie searches for beautiful women who will give him what he wants. Once they become too attached, he breaks their heart. This ideal bachelor lifestyle ends up unraveling and Alfie must learn to admit defeat and change his ways.

Jude Law is a fine actor and does his usual excellent job in this remake. If you've never seen the original you'd probably think it was a decent enough movie. But if you've seen the original, with Michael Caine, you'd be wondering why they bothered to make this in the first place- especially the butchered version that resulted.

Like a lot of latter day remakes, this is very much a prettified version of the original. All of Law's conquests have model good looks- as does Law himself, for that matter. He's also a good deal more refined, in accent and in manners, unlike Caine's rather crude Cockney. He moves about in beautiful surroundings. And that loses an essential element of the setting of the novel. Alfie did not live in a beautiful world, and his conquests were not necessarily beautiful women; in large part they were women whom someone else desired- and that was what compelled him to seduce them.

Caine's (and the novel's) Alfie exploited weak women; for whatever reason, the director, or perhaps the producers, decided this Alfie's conquests had to be modern, strong women who use him as much as he uses them. That of course makes Alfie a good deal less of a cad; Jude Law's Alfie is not leaving behind the wrecked lives that Caine's did, and he becomes almost sympathetic at one point- a sentiment completely absent in the book and the original movie.

In the end, this version misses the essential Alfie- his inability to recognize flaws in himself, even as he rationalizes his actions and convinces himself that he's doing the right thing. The result is a shallow character study completely lacking the depth and impact of the original.

Acting by the entire cast was damn good. What kept this from being a keeper in my DVD collection was the script-Character conversations are a bit trite, exhibiting all the back-n-forth verbal luster of a 1950's dime store novel. Law starts out a bit rocky, perhaps owing to the "talking directly to the camera" point of view, but this soon becomes more than bearable as the film progresses- It just takes a bit of getting used to. The biggest fault in Alfie's world is his "what could have been" paranoia in relationships, always believing there is someone better out there beyond the time he spends with his current (sometimes multiple) love interests. But, at least his character goes through a progression: starting out with a carefree attitude with women, eventually mounting into a man with a bit of depth and understanding , and ultimately realizing the true importance of loving....At least I think that's where the movie was going.

The genre of love-drama's that delve deep into the lives of sex addicts, heart breakers, and those naiive to the ways of love, have always interested me. I had been looking forward to seeing this film for quite sometime. It contained a knockout cast of Jude Law, Marissa Tomei, and Omar Epps.

The introduction to the movie starts of strong. Alfy narrates his storybook existence in New York, and quickly introduces us to his style, feelings, and women. We find Alfy to be someone who can not stick with one girl. He is dependent of all the women in his life and finds an emotional attachment with many of them.

Midway through the movie i realized that the plot had not progressed since the first 20 minutes of the movie. I had already got a taste of what Alfie's life was like, and it was time for the movie to take me on a ride of excitement, an emotional rollercoaster was expected. But the movie begins to get EXTREMELY repetitive. He meets a great girl, dumps her. Meets a great girl, dumps her. Trys to get a girl back, doesn't happen.

Another problem with this movie was that none of the secondary characters are developed in entirity. Alfie himself we get to know WAY to well, while his best friend, girlfriends, confidants, we develop no connection with. I end up not caring what happens to any of the characters as the movie drags into oblivion.

My recommendation is save this movie for when you are REALLY bored. I'd watch Swingers 10 more times before i watched this movie again.

I had only seen Jude Law in two films prior to this one and was instantly intrigued by this sexy Brit. If you're expecting a romantic comedy, you're out of luck with this one but it's still a decent movie.

Alfie's a smooth talking Londoner in New York who does his very best to avoid succumbing to the dreaded 'c' word commitment. Along the way, we're introduced to some of his ladies on the go - Dorie, Julie, Liz and Nikki, to name but a few.

Alfie, a chauffeur, lives in a small Manhattan apartment and dedicates his life to seducing women. Talking directly into the camera, and preening with a self-satisfaction so complete as to seem a form of innocence, he expounds on clothes, the proper application of cologne and the various rules he employs in his libidinous pursuits. His goal, it seems, is to have sex with as many women as possible but to get close to none of them.

Each one starts off as a fling, but somehow manages to influence Alfie's life. He slowly starts to realize that he is actually alone and that there is more to life than what he has done so far.

Would I recommend it? Definitely. Although remakes do not usually come through smelling of roses, this one does. It's fresh, colourful and funny. Jude Law is magnificent, introducing us to a slightly warmer side of Alfie than Michael Caine.
