MOVIE: Sabrina

ELEVEN, 8.30pm, PG (1995)

The Morning Bulletin - - LIFE TV GUIDE -

This re­make of the 1954 ro­man­tic com­edy clas­sic which starred Au­drey Hep­burn and Humphrey Bog­art isn’t quite in the same class but the ba­sic premise is enough to elicit some hearty laughs. Ju­lia Or­mond plays a chauf­feur’s daugh­ter in love with play­boy Greg Kin­n­ear from afar. When Kin­n­ear fi­nally no­tices her, his brother (Har­ri­son Ford) tac­ti­cally steps in to woo her so that Kin­n­ear can find a wife from an­other rich fam­ily. A saggy mid­dle lets down what could have been a fresh up­date of Bil­lyWilder’s hi­lar­i­ous tale.
