Critic Reviews for Sabrina
This is never less than glittering entertainment, but somehow a certain measure of lead has found its way into the formula.
Script is long on glibly quipping dialog, dropped with a seemingly casual air, and broadly played situations. The splendid trouping delivers them style. Leavening the chuckles are tugs at the heart.
It's a Cinderella story that gets turned on its head, a satire about breaking down class and emotional barriers, and a confrontation between New World callousness and Old World humanity.
Hampered by an unimaginative script ... nevertheless manages to be a thoroughly charming, delightfully romantic variation of the Cinderella story.
What you end up with is hardly vintage Wilder, but certainly one of those warm, comfortable movies it's nice to curl up with on a Sunday afternoon.
Audience Reviews for Sabrina
An amusing romantic comedy with great dialogue and a sweet Cinderella feel to it, but the plot is still not too original and there is a glaring lack of chemistry between Hepburn and Bogart, who is also clearly miscast here and seems too old for the role.
A sparkling gem. Hepburn, Bogart and Holden are all great in this reworking of Cinderella.
Number 4 off the pile of crap... What do you know - not crap!
Despite never really having got the whole fuss over Audrey Hepburn, I could really see it here. She is completely charming as Sabrina and attractive too. This from someone who can't sit through Breakfast at Tiffany's.
This is a lovely, light romantic movie about a chauffeur's daughter who is in love with the rich boy next door. He doesn't know she exists until she returns from school in France, all grown up and newly sophisticated. As she gets to know him and his brother it seems she has two admirers.
I found this easy to watch and undemanding. Far from ditching it, I think I will watch it again sometime!
|Oliver Larrabee:||20th Century? I could pick another century out of a hat blindfolded and get a better one!|
|Linus Larrabee:||No man walk's alone from choice.|
|Sabrina Fairchild:||Oh but Paris isn't for changing planes, it's for changing your outlook!|
|Sabrina Fairchild:||All night long I've had the most terrible impulse to do something.|
|Linus Larrabee:||Oh never resist an impulse, Sabrina. Especially if it's terrible.|
