Buoyant adult fairy tale about love and transformation.
Aside from the painfully miscast Ford, it is an enjoyable ride down a well-worn path.
| Original Score: 68/100
Ford looks as stiff and old hat as his homburg.
Proves too flimsy of a reed to be successfully replanted.
Despite the unambitious, formula-driven plot, wonderful performances by Julia Ormond and, especially, Harrison Ford keep this remake afloat.
| Original Score: 3/4
Just as satisfying, if not as dry and cynical, as the original.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
A light fairy-tale, sweet and charming.
Has a level of complexity rare in contemporary Hollywood.
Harrison Ford and Julia Ormond have great chemistry.
It's likable, and nostalgic.
A surprisingly delightful and fresh romance.
Rich with the kind of conversation that most movies, even romances, don't even aspire to.
Stands on its own, without odious comparison, as an entertaining love story, particularly if you've never seen the original.
A warm and clever romantic comedy that stands on its own and offers a good time for two hours -- despite its myriad implausibilities.
While it can't hold a candle to Wilder's film, the updated Sabrina has its moments.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
The remake, alas, must mask its failings with Julia Ormond's toothsomeness, Pollack's poky pacing and the uninspired scribblings of writers Barbara Benedek and David Rayfiel.
Never evokes the sweet allure of Billy Wilder's original film.
A handsome remake that plays homage to the Wilder flick.
Ford's deadpan delivery is perfect, and television talk-show host Kinnear is very funny in his first big-screen performance.
