Storyline

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 Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

About "Trivia" and how stupid this movie idea is
20 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have a comment to make about the "Trivia" section about "Alfie." Where the resident of England was shooting on a video camera-footage outside his window when they made the movie there. And the director said the guy should be sued.

Well- did anyone think that maybe the director should be sued, or the people who "dug up" this classic movie and pretended it was never made. Did anyone ask "Burt Bacharach" if they could use his theme song or rather rip it off?

I get so disgruntled year after year now- of the yuppie stuff from Hollywood- remake this, remake that- I imagine it is only to target someone who is younger than 30 and won't remember that Michael Caine was in the movie in 1966. Everything they say about the 1966 Alfie on TV is so mean. And that really upsets me to no end. Today I saw a behind the scenes look at "Alfie" the ripoff.

If anyone need suing- it is "all" the Hollywood people who think they can REMAKE classics of any kind. And to even have someone else sing the theme song, how sacrilegious is the world now?

If I were Michael Caine-the original actor, Dionne Warwicke-the original theme singer, and of course the brilliant-song writer Burt Bacharach- I would be very angry right about now. From being slapped in the face by the film makers for recognizing the PAST as nothing. I even heard a generation "X" actor on behind the scenes who said that Michael Caines character was too harsh. Well, excuse me- did anyone bother to realize that is the reason you remake a film, because it is supposed to be close to the original? Duh.

This same kind of stupid craze came out with Planet of the Apes.They said- " Oh this has nothing to do with the Charleton Heston film". Yeh,sure. Give credit where credit is due. Don't slam the past, at least recognize it and give it stature.

I sit and wonder-God only knows what they will remake and mess up next. I could go on and on- this past 2 years has been nothing but ripoff remake. "Willard,Bourne Identity,Alfie,Freaky Friday ( for the 3rd damn time!).

Can't someone make a movie that is not a remake? Hollywood should leave our generation alone and in tact with the movies and make up something new!

This Alfie was a waste of time. I was not born last night, all these movies will appeal to the people who have no idea that there was an original.The young people. And in the end that only makes money,money,money. I think it is defacing something wonderful by reaching back and grabbing hit movies from the past.

I fight back by not going to see these remakes, because I know they will be garbage. Every one I have seen or heard about has been that way. Let's get real - They sliced up the Exorcist a hundred different ways. Give me another break.

Unless you were 12,13,14 years old and sitting in the theater seeing- The Exorcist,Jaws,Towering Inferno, Poseiden Adventure,or any of the other great ORIGINAL movies of the 1970's and 1960's-then keep your self in the 2004 seat and make up something NEW!!!!!
