Trivia

Jennifer Love Hewitt is actually an avid fan of Audrey Hepburn and admitted she found it very "scary" to be playing her idol onscreen as she was worried her portrayal would not do her justice. See more »

Goofs

The day Holland is liberated, Audrey was sick and almost died in the story. Later in the film she tells someone about that day and how wonderful it was to watch the movie in the middle of town to celebrate. She was too ill to get out of bed and would not have been able to attend. See more »

Quotes

Audrey Hepburn: [after receiving an Academy Award] I would like to thank my mother, who taught me to stand up straight, sit erect, use discipline with wine and sweets, and only smoke six cigarettes a day.

not a dignified ode
15 January 2001 | by rob.hendrikxSee all my reviews

An other user comment stated that Jennifer Love Hewitt was not the right choice to play the part of the late great Audrey Hepburn. That may be so, but then again, who is? I can't think of a modern day actress that would be right. Isn't that exactly the reason this film was made in the first place, to celebrate the fact that Audrey Hepburn was unique?

I think what was said about Love Hewitt, is also true, and much more painfully, of all the others in the cast, portraying celebrities. Neither Peck, nor Bogart, nor Holden, nor Ferrer (the least bad) was done any justice by the actors portraying them. Most of them haven't even one tenth of the special charisma that made these man great movie stars.

This above all prevents this otherwise entertaining movie from becoming a dignified ode to not only a wonderful actress, but truly a remarkable and lovely person.
