Jimmy's Buzz Guide Review:
Although missing some of the bite of the Michael Caine original, Jude Law is terrific. He's going to be around in leading man roles for a long time.

Alfie
Jude Law gets Alfie off to a very promising start giving a vibrant performance as an irrestistible British philanderer driving a long black limousine through the streets of Manhattan. He uses his charm and disarming smile to get women – lots of them. With so many out there, Alfie simply can’t settle for just one, so when a woman gets too attached, he simply takes off. In a running commentary to the audience, he claims he just can’t help himself; he is performing his civic duty to these lonely hearts. Marisa Tomei, Jane Krakowski, Susan Sarandon and Sienna Miller portray his bevy of beauties, using each of them for a specific purpose. Julie (Marisa Tomei), is his semi-permanent girlfriend who wants a commitment since she has a son from a previous relationship to whom Alfie has become somewhat attached. So, off he goes. Dorie (Jane Krakowski) is the neglected wife of an overworked businessman. Liz (Susan Sarandon) is a wealthy Manhattan socialite, who turns out to be a female version of Alfie. Finally Nikki (Siena Miller) is a wild party girl coming on the scene just when Alfie's dreading the prospect of spending Christmas alone. But, in his never ending quest to conquer the female population, Alfie makes a major mistake by seducing cocktail waitress Lonette (Nia Long), the ex-girlfriend of his best pal Marlon, (Omar Epps), who seems to be the only consistently stable person in Alfie’s life. Jude Law is perfect as Alfie, effortlessly speaking directly to the camera, pausing frequently to look at the audience with his impish, cocky smile as he explains his actions. Director Charles Shyer (Father of the Bride) wisely elected to continue this technique originally used to great effect in the Michael Caine original in 1966. There's a cracking original score written by Mick Jagger (who is also one of the film's producers) and The Eurythmics' Dave Stewart.
