Acting under the cover of a Hollywood producer scouting a location for a science fiction film, a CIA agent launches a dangerous operation to rescue six Americans in Tehran during the U.S. hostage crisis in Iran in 1980.
In Manhattan, the British limousine driver Alfie is surrounded by beautiful women, most of them clients, and he lives as a Don Juan, having one night stands with all of them and without any sort of commitment. His girl-friend and single-mother Julie is quite upset with the situation and his best friends are his colleague Marlon and his girl-friend Lonette. Alfie has a brief affair with Lonette, and the consequences of his act forces Alfie to reflect and wonder about his life style. Written by

Right after the flower shop scene, Alfie rides his scooter to Liz's place. Only the flowers are not in the basket or anywhere on the scooter. Yet as he comes around the corner of the stairs towards the apartment, he has the flowers in his hand. See more »

I don't understand why Alfie isn't doing well at the box office. I loved it, it's the best romantic comedy I've seen in a long time. It was sexy, funny and it made me cry. I can't wait for it to come out on DVD. I liked the fact that the ending wasn't predictable, it was actually bittersweet. Jude Law was really great in this film, very charismatic and he had a complex underlying vulnerability underneath it all. I wasn't a huge fan of his, but after this movie I definitely am. I should also mention that Omar Epps did a great job, probably his best performance, that I've seen. It's not your typical romantic comedy, not a chick flick, it has something for men and women alike. it's moving without being sappy. GO SEE IT!!!
