Trivia

John Hughes was originally set to direct from his own screenplay, titled "The Chambermaid", with Hilary Swank as the lead. In January 2001, the Dallas Morning News reported that Hughes would produce only, with a start date of March 2001. Al Cohn of the Illinois Film Office was hired as Location Manager for the shoot. By July, Variety was reporting that Hughes and Swank were out, and Jennifer Lopez was in negotiations for the lead. Wayne Wang was hired as Director in October 2001, with a new screenplay by Kevin Wade, which updated the story from the 1920s. Sandra Bullock had expressed interest in the lead at one point, and Julia Roberts passed on the script early on. See more »

Don't waste your time - watch "Sabrina" once again instead!
29 December 2004 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The story? Cliché, cliché, cliché, the umpteenth remake of Cinderella with not a single interesting addition. The script? Formula (and lame at that). The cast? Jennifer Lopez's turn as Cinderella/Sabrina proves she does not remotely belong to "rags-to-Princess" roles; she is galaxies away from Audrey Hepburn or Grace Kelly (or even "Pretty Woman" Julia Roberts), no matter how expensive the jewelry or costumes she wears. Ralph Fiennes seems to be on an O.D. of Prozac, with a perennial foolish smile on his face, wishing he were Cary (or even Hugh!) Grant -- shame to see a talented actor in such a puffy role. Natasha Richardson is wasted in the obligatory dumb blonde part, Stanley Tucci hams it up irritatingly, Bob Hoskins knows and shows his role is an embarrassment. On a less negative note, kid Tyler Posey is a real charmer, and manages to survive his "cutie" part. The direction? Well, no doubt Wayne Wang is a professional and I hope he was paid a LOT of money to lend his prestigious name to this fluffy cake - I only wish the word "professionalism" were taken more seriously, as in "professional integrity"...Where is the Wayne Wang that directed the surrealistic "Life is Cheap...But Toilet Paper is Expensive" and the cool "Smoke"?

Sit through this only if you are in a hypoglycemic fit; otherwise watch "Sabrina" once again and marvel at real star power, witty dialog and charm to spare!
