A very romantic, very loyal retelling of the classic love story

Film Threat

Where else can you hear Kate Hepburn say the "F" word?

A tepid remake.

This is one love affair not worth remembering...tepid and unsure of its slow-witted pacing. It's any wonder that Beatty and Bening didn't hinder their real life relationship with this lovey-dovey tripe

Movie Eye

Almost redeemed by its beautiful cinematography and Katharine Hepburns' cameo.

Audience Reviews for Love Affair

½

Adequate remake of An Affair to Remember, pleasant but little else. It doesn't do anything new with the story begging the question, Why bother? Warren Beatty and Annette Bening are talented actors but Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr they are not and for a couple so happily wed offscreen they share minimal chemistry on.

a.k.a. Warren Beatty gets a movie studio to pay for his fucking Tahitian honeymoon. I hated the 1939 melodramatic original and this one was just as dull. Remember the scene in "Sleepless in Seattle" where they describe a couple who vow to meet at the top of the Empire State Building- but she gets hit by a car before getting there? "Chick movie"? This is the remake of that movie. And they follow that same rediculousness. Also, they trot out 80-some year old Katherine Hepburn to make her unfortunate last feature appearance. She was actually pretty cold and lifeless for the most part. I will give some credit to Annette Bening, who is charming and calmly beautiful. And the on location shots are well worth the trip. But Warren still slept through the readings of a boring script that he helped to adapt from a bad idea to begin with.

This is a remake of two classics, Love Affair (1939) and An Affair to Remember (1958). This version is the worst of the three versions, but it's not a bad film. Still, it pales compared to the two classic versions. Annette Bening does a good job, but Warren Beatty just doesn't seem comfortable in the role. It's always good to see Katharine Hepburn.
