    In our wistful estimation, the most delightful comedy-romance in years.

    A charming, if often-seen, tale, paced with alacrity by Wilder from the adaptation of Taylor's hit play. [Review of re-release]

    A slick blend of heart and chuckles makes Sabrina a sock romantic comedy.

    Sabrina is playfully seductive, and will leave almost all viewers, even those as cold as Linus, with a smile on their lips and a warm glow in their hearts. [Review of re-release]

    Gold, in a word, is guaranteed at the boxoffice, and this is never less than glittering entertainment, but somehow a certain measure of lead has found its way into the formula.

    Billy Wilder's 1954 version of the Samuel Taylor staple was a perfect vehicle for Audrey Hepburn, though the cut is too tight for her costars, Humphrey Bogart and William Holden. [Review of re-release]

    A film that has been loved by many, many people in this world. Audrey and a whole cast of well know actors excel in this sweet and romantic film. A delight for most every person who watches it, put it in for some laughs, or for a nice evening with a romantic love. Truly a MUST SEE!! Expand

    Pitch perfect romantic comedy which is subtle enough to love and funny enough to appeal to a wide audience. Again Hepburn proves that she was the princess of the silver screen and the film is a depressing reminder of just how far the industry has fallen in 50 years. The story is a masterpiece of simplicity and proves that complexity is not synonymous with effectiveness. The only way this film loses marks is because it is unoriginal but original films very rarely feel so rousing. 91/100 Expand
