Good, but...
11 February 2002 | by Liza-19See all my reviews

It's not a scrap on the original. Of course Audrey Hepburn's version is superior - the woman won an Oscar for it. However, this version does stay very true to the heart of the story, and is well done. There really aren't any major changes made, just the story is now in color and updated a little. It's nice to see what they did with it, perhaps a little more true to what would happen today. There's nothing spectacular about this production, but it's worthwhile. Overall, if you can only see one version, see the original.
