Third Time's "Almost" The Charm.
11 November 2010 | by (Phx. Arizona ("Arizona Smells Funny"!- Homer Simpson)) – See all my reviews

People that know the 2 movies "An Affair To Remember" and the re-make before this one also called "Love Affair",pretty much know what the movie is about and what to expect.

After viewing it all, I can honestly say that this re-make was not really necessary. I'm not saying it suffers the same fate of Striesand's remake of "A Star Is Born" (also a third go-round) but for all intentional purposes,it's just okay and a bit bland.

I know Beatty is a good actor and so is Annette but there's not a whole lot of dramatic feeling in their parts for my taste. Even after her character is hurt and can't walk,you just don't feel that sense of urgency about these two. Which makes it very hard to care what happens to them. I was far more moved by Aunt Ginny's passing than anything else.

Speaking of her :

Like many have stated here though,Katharine Hepburn's brief appearance more than makes up for it. Her part really should have been written so she could at least have been in the film for an hour.

I also wish she hadn't been made to use a certain 4 letter word also,totally unnecessary and cheap low brow humor.

In all,it's okay to watch if you've nothing better in your collection or to rent, It is worth it for Hepburn,as is almost anything Hepburn ever made.

Six stars,for simply a watchable enough film and of course,because it was Kate's last theatrical movie-screen appearance.

She was always the bright spot in any film,good or bad. (END)
