In late 1950s New York, Tom Ripley, a young underachiever, is sent to Italy to retrieve Dickie Greenleaf, a rich and spoiled millionaire playboy. But when the errand fails, Ripley takes extreme measures.
Finding it hard to finally settle down and commit himself to only one woman, the unrepentant philanderer and undeniable ladies' man, Alfie, is a charming British who cruises the streets of New York as a limousine chauffeur. In his impeccable suits, the silver-tongued Casanova is simply irresistible; however, things will take an unexpected turn, when a night of unrestrained passion seriously tests Alfie's frivolous approach to life. In the end, is Alfie happy, and above all, what's it all about, then?Written by
When filming was taking place in Manchester, England in 2003, a local resident who lived across the street recorded set construction, and on-set activity from his window with a camcorder. When the director, Charles Shyer, found out the local resident was doing this he threatened to "sue his ass" but the resident reminded him that they were filming outside his very house. See more »

This was one of the worst movies that I have been subjected to in a long time. It didn't quite know if it was: A) a chick flick because of Jude Law consuming the screen every single moment B) a manly flick because of all the hot women running around half naked.
C) Or just a hodge podge of doomed relationships/one night stands.
The movie didn't quite know what it was and left us in the same perturbed state as its main character.
Jude was adorable, the NYC life was fun to watch, but overall the movie lacked substance. And not to mention the lack of social awareness when it came to the women in the film.
Stay away... unless of course you have an undying love for Jude Law. But after sitting through this your love will wither away!
