Top Critic Reviews
Rotten: Alfie begins and ends by asking, 'What's it all about?' Unfortunately, it's a question the filmmakers never bother to answer.

Rotten: The original Alfie was as much overrated as the remake is underrated. Split the difference.
- Andrew Sarris, New York Observer, Thursday, November 18, 2004
Rotten: Even Michael Caine's career would have gone nowhere if he had made this version of "Alfie."

More of a light hearted drama than comedy most of the time. I've not seen the original version but assume this is sexed up a little. Quite a strange format, almost monologue the whole way through Alfie talking to the viewer, something different. It has a great cast and Sienna Miller looks beautiful! A well made film funny in places, worth a watch.

I actually think this is a great movie for what it is. It's not corny or predictable at all, in fact it was pretty surprising. Jude Law was amazing and really carried the movie. It's not just your average romantic comedy, it's actually pretty dramatic at times.

Hated it. Although Alfie is meant to be unlikable, Jude Law manages to be completely hateful in this utterly pointless remake. Some of the direction has its moments but overall is completely confused as to what it wants to be and to what it wants to achieve! Can't say I?m much of a fan of Charles Shyer (or Jude Law now for that matter)
