Did You Know?


According to director Charles Shyer, in the shot where Alfie (Jude Law) punches a car windshield, Law actually cracked the windshield. Apparently, the actor wasn't able to put as much effort into punching it until Shyer told him to imagine that it was the paparazzi. As a result, Law punched so hard that a sledgehammer had to destroy the cracked windshield. See more »

I loved it
24 November 2004 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

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!!!
