Thoughts:

I’m not sure why I own this version of Sabrina. I prefer the 1954 version with Audrey Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart. The ‘95 version must have been on sale or something. It’s a fine movie, but not one I have to own. Since I do and it’s digital I guess I’m not getting rid of it.

Harrison Ford is horrible at romance. Then again, so was Humphrey Bogart. There isn’t much chemistry between the two leads, again the same as the older one. Sabrina is very easily manipulated and I think that’s why I prefer the older version. I remember her getting angrier at Bogart than Ormond gets at Ford. In this version, Sabrina is very much riding along and doesn’t do much for herself. She’s supposed to be this well of sage advice, but I’m not sure why Ford would even listen to her.

Oh well. It’s a nice background movie.
