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.

Audience Reviews for Sabrina

The idea is appealing, and the acting pretty good - at least Harrison and Ormond. I haven't seen the 1954 original - my rating for this movie might change when I see it.

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.
