Law plays a kinder, gentler lothario in this contemporary update of the 1966 film (which helped make Michael Caine a star), although Alfie still engages in a somewhat self-conscious running commentary directed to the camera. The charming, handsome Alfie is now a limo driver in New York who indulges himself with as many beautiful birds as will put up with him. These include the lonely, married Dorie (Krakowski); single mom Julie (Tomei), who kicks him out after realizing Alfie is a horn-dog; sexy, self-destructive party girl Nikki (Miller); and foxy Lonette (Long), the ex-girlfriend of his best friend Marlon (Epps). But even Alfie must pay for his dalliances when he suffers a bout of impotence and then meets his sexual match in worldly mature beauty Liz (Sarandon). While Alfie remains a narcissist (though ever-so-appealing as played by Law) at least the women characters are no longer complaisant or compliant.
