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.
- Adam Graham, Detroit News, Friday, November 5, 2004
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."

This story of the starting loneliness of a womanizer begins somewhat pretentious. Alfie talks right into the camera and to the audience, the first few minutes feel like a commercial. But this actually turns out to be one of the assets of the movie later on, when we always get Alfie's honest and unfiltered thoughts. How he slowly comes to realize that a real relationship would be worth more than one night stands and affairs is actually really amusing to watch. The greatest scenes are the emotional, serious ones, though. Without preaching the movie makes its point by denying a happy ending and giving the audience the chance to draw their own conclusions. Well done.

I really like the cast and thought it was a good complicated self discovery flick.
