Critic Reviews for Sabrina

All Critics (36) | Top Critics (8)

  • Constantly through the cleverness of individual situations Sabrina seems to override what is wrong with its plot and even its motivation.

  • 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.

  • Wilder's tastelessness now seems his major artistic strength.

  • 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.

    An amusing romantic comedy with great dialogue and a sweet Cinderella feel to it, but still the plot is not so original and there is a glaring lack of chemistry between Hepburn and Bogart, who is also clearly miscast and seems too old for the role.

    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.

    Wilder directs this 50s RomCom starring Audrey Hepburn. Hepburn played the woman in the title whose caught in a love triangle, Sabrina. Sabrina was obsessive and selfish, not attractive with her emotions, yet for an unexplained reason everyone loves her. I recall laughing three times in this near two hour film, and I don't think I really cared once. Plenty could've been cut out, like the opening narration scene. Not a classic in my mind, I'm shocked it wasn't forgotten.

    A sparkling gem. Hepburn, Bogart and Holden are all great in this reworking of Cinderella.
