And Now For Something Completely Similar: Alfie (2004)

And Now For Something Completely Similar…

The guys revisit your favourite aging lothario as they tackle the 2004 remake of Alfie starring Jude Law. They talk about the ‘softening’ of the title character, changing the setting to Manhattan, Sienna Miller’s mesmerizing performance, the “abortion” scene, Cher’s new recording of the theme song and much more. Plus: there are way too many Shellys, guys.

Next week: The mini-series continues with a discussion of the “long-awaited” sequel to Hope and Glory where little Bill is all grown up in… Queen and Country.
