3.0 out of 5 stars what's it all about? Nov. 16 2010
By Brian Maitland TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I had completely forgotten the 1966 original starring Michael Caine bar the vague memories that it was about a working class Cockney playboy who talked to the camera throughout the movie and that Shelley Winters was at her screaming best in this. Other than that, I had no recollection of the first Alfie.

That's a good thing because this version with Jude Law seems to show the character himself is not dated and all that was needed was to update the women in his life. This is where the extras are a great help as they intersperse the stories of both the 1966 movie and this one to give you a great idea of how each is every so slightly different. I will say one thing: The women in this one are all babes (Marisa Tomei, Nia Long, Jane Krakowski, Sienna Miller and Susan Sarandon) unlike the 1966 one which seemed to focus on the homely rather than the dropdead gorgeous.

Maybe that was the point in 1966 but as far as a moviegoer I want my eye candy!

The movie was much more than I expected. It starts off with Law as the usual playboy type and evolves into something much deeper, very contemporary and gives you far more insight into relationships without devolving into some sort of lame wimpy chick flick.

It's also a very hip and cool looking movie from Alfie's Vespa to Sarandon's pad to Sienna Miller's tres hip 21st century NYC girl cool.

In the end it's Jude Law who pulls the whole thing off with just the right smile or offhand comment that hits the mark in the delivery.

4.0 out of 5 stars A rather intriguing little film July 11 2006
By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Alfie struck me as a most unusual film. I haven't seen the original version featuring Michael Caine, so I went into this film with no expectations as to how things would play out. Things certainly didn't end the way I thought they would - but that it almost surely a good thing. Jude Law's modern Alfie doesn't deserve a fairy tale ending - indeed, such a flowery ending would have betrayed the real meaning of the entire film. Alfie is a charming little devil, but he's the worst kind of man - a womanizer who leaves broken hearts in his wake as he evades commitment and rushes ever onwards to more women, more cheap thrills, and ever more self-satisfaction. It's hard for me to feel too sorry for a guy like this when he eventually discovers that he's nothing but an empty shell and begins to look longingly at the things he doesn't have. He does come to understand exactly what he is by the end of the movie, but I'm not sure he ever reaches the point of redemption. Every time there seems to be some hope that he will change his life, he falls right back into the lifestyle he is supposedly growing tired of. It's important to note that, at the end, he is basically asking "what's it all about?" He still doesn't know - he's been hurt the very way he has hurt so many others, but he never goes beyond the pain to find moral redemption. Read more ›

1.0 out of 5 stars Leaves much to be desired....... July 28 2005
By Jose F.
Format:DVD
Save your time... and about $20. Buy the less expensive original version starring Michael Caine. It is by far, a better film than this remake. Jude Law seems miscast as sleazebag Alfie (though off screen... he is every bit as sleazy... ahem, ahem); and his performance, as the performances of his co-stars are lacking in every aspect of the word. There is no merit to this film. Alfie should NEVER have been remade. I would ONLY recommend the original. Ok? Ok....
