    The new version is just as satisfying, if not as dry and cynical, as the original. show more

    Ford plays Linus as a consummate actor so good at feigning emotions that he fools even himself. It is a nuanced performance, astonishing in an otherwise innocuous film. Though Ormond's Sabrina doesn't exactly generate the heat to melt Ford's glacial CEO, his transformation from polar ice cap to volcano is heartstopping. Who'da thunk we were watching Cinderfella?

    An entertaining, if a bit predictable, romantic comedy with a good cast. Expect anything more from it and you'll come away disappointed. show more
