Movie Info

A remake of a 1954 Billy Wilder romance, this updated version of the play Sabrina Fair was directed by Sydney Pollack. Julia Ormond stars as Sabrina Fairchild, the daughter of a kindly chauffeur (John Wood) at the Long Island estate of the upper-crust Larrabee family. Sabrina has grown up enchanted from afar with the Larrabees' sparkling world of privilege and wealth, but she's especially enamored of younger Larrabee brother David (Greg Kinnear), a charming womanizer.

We remain outside the fourth wall looking in but are never drawn in; bemused perhaps, even agreeably complaisant, but never entirely amused.

This new Sabrina is more fizzle than fizz.

Sydney Pollack directs with the sort of polish that was easy to take for granted two decades ago but almost looked like classicism in 1995.

Ormond's face is certainly not hard to gaze at, but she looks so often ill at ease that her 'confident' gay smiles suggest, inappropriately, some masked pyschological distress.

Blossoming into radiant color, this film has picture-postcard charms that the black-and-white earlier version could only hint at.

Ormand and Ford, who are actually okay, have the impossible tasks of following Wilder's perfect players, Audrey Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart.

Ugly-duckling-into-swan stories are fun, but the lead characters here lack the charisma to make this romantic comedy sufficiently believable or engaging.

Not, as some reviewers claimed, a mediocre reworking of a Hollywood classic, but a truly lousy reworking of a Billy Wilder misfire.

A flaccid remake of the classic 1954 romantic comedy.

It's hard to imagine any actress today reprising Audrey Hepburn's graceful charm, but British newcomer Julia Ormond is a particularly bad choice and Harrison Ford ain't Bogey, either. Add the film to long list of unnecessary remakes.

Retains all the wit and charm that made the original such a winner.

Not a bad remake.

A very effective updating of an old rags-to-riches tale, being careful not to suggest that a woman needs to find a rich man in order to be happy.

Go rent the Billy Wilder version and see how this should be done!

Audience Reviews for Sabrina

Sydney Pollack's homage pales in comparison to, well c'mon, Bogie and Hepburn and Wilder ... how can you beat that? But after taking that monumental fact into account, its not so bad on its own merits. Ford and Ormond have their own charm, yah, but the writing fails the scintillation somewhat. Otherwise the fantasy of the ugly duckling turned elegant swan remains intact.

An almost word for word remake but Harrison Ford is great. Full review later.

While it's not a particularly amazing movie, it still has a lot of redeeming qualities. Harrison Ford actually played a highly entertaining yuppie and had a lot of great moments. While it is a little bit fluffy for my taste, it is by no means a bad romantic comedy.

Meh. Julia Ormond is exquisite but Harrison Ford is blisteringly dull. The film hardly shows Sabrina's development from gawky nerd to Parisian sophisticate at all. A few zingers here and there, but on the whole, draggy and overwrought. The original with Audrey and Bogie didn't make much of an impression on me either.
