About the Movie
This remake of Lewis Gilbert's 1966 film of the same name features Jude Law filling the shoes Michael Caine once wore in the title role of Alfie. As with the original, Law occasionally speaks directly to the camera while his character talks of the opposite sex. Under the direction of Charles Shyer, Alfie follows a charming, if morally lacking, womanizer from one bed to the next. While his actions arise more from nonchalance than malice, Alfie nonetheless faces a moral dilemma when considering that he's impregnated one of his latest girlfriends. Alfie also includes performances from Marisa Tomei, Susan Sarandon, and Nia Long.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The women Alfie betrays, played by Marisa Tomei, Jane Krakowski, Nia Long and Sienna Miller (Law's offscreen love and an actress of beauty and intelligence), give him so many deserved post-feminist whacks that you almost pity the guy.
Rotten: 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.
Fresh: The new script raises the emotional stakes of the old scenes it retains, cuts plot elements that can't be updated and creates new story lines that are just as effective as those it replaces.
Fresh: The supporting cast of females (and Epps) is fun to watch, and the film boasts three original songs by Mick Jagger and Dave Stewart.
