Miraculously, Pollack makes Billy Wilder's 1954 light comedy leaden, like a chef turning a meringue into a bread pudding.
January 1, 2011
Uneven remake, still a sweet story.

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.
October 18, 2008
Ormand and Ford, who are actually okay, have the impossible tasks of following Wilder's perfect players, Audrey Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart.
October 18, 2008
Ugly-duckling-into-swan stories are fun, but the lead characters here lack the charisma to make this romantic comedy sufficiently believable or engaging.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
May 27, 2008
Not, as some reviewers claimed, a mediocre reworking of a Hollywood classic, but a truly lousy reworking of a Billy Wilder misfire.

A flaccid remake of the classic 1954 romantic comedy.
September 18, 2007
It's hard to imagine any actress today reprising Audrey Hepburn's graceful charm, but British newcomer Julia Ormond is a particularly bad choice and Harrison Ford ain't Bogey, either. Add the film to long list of unnecessary remakes.

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.

A lovely, underrated update...

Blossoming into radiant color, this film has picture-postcard charms that the black-and-white earlier version could only hint at.
March 27, 2003
A very effective updating of an old rags-to-riches tale, being careful not to suggest that a woman needs to find a rich man in order to be happy.
