"Sabrina, the full time observation of David Larrabee is not a recognized profession. Get down from that tree."


It's on tonight, another of my favorites. Sabrina, the new version, not the old one. This is the one with with Harrison Ford, Julia Ormond and Greg Kinnear. The original with Humphry Bogart is great, too! But the newer one is my favorite.

This movie is filled with great lines. Way too many for me to put in here. There is a sharp, but heartfilled wit about the movie. The relationships are wonderful and the character's motivations are subtle, but real. The movie also has fantastic scenery of Paris and Cape Cod.

"I don't expect you to think of me when I'm gone. You didn't think of me when I was here." Sabrina confesses when she thinks she's talking to David and it's really Lineus.

Sabrina is a ghost of a girl who only wants to be loved. In this case, she wants the love of David. David is the perpetual goof off. He wants to play all day and not have to worry about where the money is coming from. He has an office at the family offices, but not a clue where they are. And he loves women, lots of women. He's made an art form of seducing women.

"So, you people work Sundays now?" David says to his mother and Lineus.
"It's Wednesday," responds Lineus in his dry manner.

Ahhh, Lineus. Harrison Ford as I imagine him to really be like. Lineus is all about being a success and being secure. But when he really "sees" Sabrina he begins to realize that there is more to life than protecting your interests. And when she really sees him. That scares the crap out of him.

Want to know how it ends? Check out the old version or the new. They're both great. After all, it's a romance with a happy ending!

I'll have to see what time it's on. Sounds like a must-see to me.
I love romances.
