It seems that Michael Caine is passing the acting baton, however indirectly, to Jude Law.

Jude Law delivers. He's sexy and an intensely engaging actor.

Shyer's Alfie captures the 1960s "British invasion" filmmaking style of Richard Lester, Michael Winner, etc., better than Lewis Gilbert did in the 1966 original.

The key to this movie's success rests in the central performance by Jude Law -- this easily represents his best acting to date.

Charles Shyer (who processed the Parent Trap and Father of the Bride updates) plays coy with most matters sexual-an odd and puritanical approach to a character who molds his entire existence around the procurement and enjoyment of sex.

Law delivers unflinching, unanswerable truth.

This funnier, glossier Alfie is a mite too watered down. In the end, we're having so much fun we don't feel his soul-sickness. It's lightweight desolation.

Alfie talks into the camera like Ferris Bueller, hoping the viewer is petty enough to relate to his narcissism.

'Alfie is a funny, breezy film. Law is especially sexy, sultry and charming to watch. I'm not convinced, though, that it needs to be seen on the big screen.'

'If I learned anything from this movie, it's to be careful about over-applying cologne.'

Shyer is the last guy on earth who could reimagine the scary thrill of 1966 sex in 2004.

If there is such a thing as the postmodern relationship ... then director Charles Shyer has come maddeningly close to objectifying it with 'Alfie.'

The music in the film was fantastic and I waited through the end credits to hear the signature song.

The question of 'Why?' (more than 'What's it all about?) still lingers where this remake is concerned.

Alfie no longer has its bite. Sure, there's plenty of bad behavior, but Jude Law's Alfie is, as scoundrels go, a pretty nice guy.

If there was ever a film that begged not to be remade, the 1966 black comedy Alfie is screaming to be left alone in a loud Cockney accent.

Law ... gives an honest, pitch-perfect performance in a film that is otherwise unremarkable.

Alfie smacks its dog with a rolled-up newspaper and then feels guilty about it. This one has star power and nothing else, y'know what I mean?

Jude Law, of course, plays Alfie, and the casting is right on target. ... His smile can disarm even the most jaded.
