This new Sabrina is more fizzle than fizz.
June 24, 2006
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.
January 1, 2000
Never evokes the sweet allure of Billy Wilder's original film.
May 12, 2001
Ford looks as stiff and old hat as his homburg.
February 3, 2009
We remain outside the fourth wall looking in but are never drawn in; bemused perhaps, even agreeably complaisant, but never entirely amused.
February 2, 2003
Go rent the Billy Wilder version and see how this should be done!

The remake, alas, must mask its failings with Julia Ormond's toothsomeness, Pollack's poky pacing and the uninspired scribblings of writers Barbara Benedek and David Rayfiel.
January 1, 2000
While it can't hold a candle to Wilder's film, the updated Sabrina has its moments.

Proves too flimsy of a reed to be successfully replanted.
July 30, 2002
Aside from the painfully miscast Ford, it is an enjoyable ride down a well-worn path.

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.

May 27, 2008
A flaccid remake of the classic 1954 romantic comedy.
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.

Uneven remake, still a sweet story.

January 1, 2000
Just as satisfying, if not as dry and cynical, as the original.

January 1, 2000
Despite the unambitious, formula-driven plot, wonderful performances by Julia Ormond and, especially, Harrison Ford keep this remake afloat.

A handsome remake that plays homage to the Wilder flick.
