What a bright, entertaining, cleverly updated and utterly satisfying comedy the new Alfie turns out to be. Read full review
Where Caine was like an arsonist in his relationships, Law's Alfie is more like a kid playing with matches -- innocent and genuinely surprised when things start blowing up around him. Law makes Alfie's befuddlement a surprisingly poignant thing to witness. Read full review
The new Alfie is so irresistible that he hardly requires contempt. Without it, the movie is little more than a feature-length roll in the hay. Read full review
