"Sabrina" has a quirky and hard to pin charm to it. The screenplay is a bit uneven, a slow and odd start gives way to a second act sizzling with zinging one liners, hilarious situations, and surprising heart. Audrey Hepburn elevates her material as a young chauffeur's daughter in love with a rich young heir, while Humphrey Bogart feels miscast as the elder brother in regards to age (though this oddly elevates the comedic material) he in fact is perfectly cast as, well, Humphrey Bogart. Our stars sell us this quirky story that takes advantage of the often boring and cliche love triangle situation, milking ambiguity for all its worth. Though a slight materialistic streak may bother some, "Sabrina" is an oddly endearing and enjoyable love story in the old tradition.

Non sono un grande fan della Hepburn e dei suoi film, ma in questo caso il film Ŕ un po' pi¨ articolato del solito e pure il ruolo di lei sembra un po' meno sciocco della media dei film americani dell'epoca; inoltre il film Ŕ anche abbastanza divertente (sempre secondo i canoni degli anni 50).

Sabrina isn't sufficiently funny or thought provoking enough in order to justify its trite subject matter, which seems to want to appear as though it's challenging conventions while unfortunately succumbing unto them. I will however, admit that for all the soapy, sappy love triangles over-saturating theaters today, this is tenfold more clever and entertaining, though being more clever than garbage isn't a hugely notable feat.

Hepburn and Bogart's chemistry is a romantic gem.

Such a treat! Beautiful, gentle, funny, and clever. Audrey Hepburn is radiant and I can't believe I went 28 years without her.

Perfect romance movie a must see

Admittedly formulaic but it is deeply charming and Bogart is fantastic in a surprisingly offbeat role

Wilder's screwball-esque romance is more than just a star-studded crowd pleaser, but a viable examination of class relationships.

Couldn't get past the first 20 minutes.

A fun film, even if the storyline and ideas seem quite dated. Audrey Hepburn is stunning and lovable, as always.

Bogie is probably miscast; there seems little real chemistry between him and young Audrey Hepburn - but that's a minor quibble. As usual, Billy Wilder has concocted a delightful script that bounces merrily along, this time with more romance than bite (but not without a few sly gags). The story is thus: Hepburn is the chauffeur's daughter who has been in love with the playboy son (William Holden) of the rich family all these years. However, the family plans to marry him off to the daughter of a sugar baron to allow a plastics deal go through. In steps Bogie, the older son, to sweep her off her feet, distract her from Holden, and get rid of her in the process. Ah, but things do not go to plan. A fine frothy affair but minor Wilder.

This was a very lovely romantic movie from Audrey Hepburn, that even though had a very good story, it was hard to believe because of its lead actor (Humphrey Bogart), which felt too old and unbelievable. Therefore, to me it felt very unusual for a love story, but Audrey made it work and more credible, at least on her part. But overall, it felt better constructed than your average romantic movie and also had some excellent acting but also, some iconic costume design mainly the one wore by Audrey Hepburn.

Sabrina is a classic portrayal of how Audrey Hepburn could be so sophisticated. It also shows great chemistry between the stars. Sabrina entertains up to the very end with just a few bumps ahead.

One of the best romantic comedies I've ever seen. This one was made during Hollywood's classical age, featuring a cast of legendary actors Humphrey Bogart, Audrey Hepburn, and William Holden. Highly entertaining and joyful to watch, with a stunning Audrey Hepburn.

Audrey Hepburn is as charming as ever, but Sabrina drags in one too many places to really be considered a classic romance.

The characters and the script are so funny and the performances so good that you almost forget that the female lead may not be that good by today standars
Super Reviewer

Although charming, Audrey Hepburn doesn't quite raise Sabrina to the heights that many hold this film to IMHO. The fact that both Bogart and Holden are contributors furthers my disappointment.

audrey hepburn charms us with her beauty and gentle way in this fun romantic comedy.

Doesn't belong in the Wilder pantheon. But when ya got Bogart and Hepburn together, good things happen.
