    In our wistful estimation, the most delightful comedy-romance in years.

    Time

    Gold, in a word, is guaranteed at the boxoffice, and this is never less than glittering entertainment, but somehow a certain measure of lead has found its way into the formula.

    ReelViews James Berardinelli

    Sabrina is playfully seductive, and will leave almost all viewers, even those as cold as Linus, with a smile on their lips and a warm glow in their hearts. [Review of re-release]

    Variety

    A slick blend of heart and chuckles makes Sabrina a sock romantic comedy.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that the film opens with Sabrina's attempted suicide -- it's not a terribly disturbing or graphic scene, but for young or sensitive children, it's worth a parent preview.

  • Families can talk about the issues of class raised in this film. How does Sabrina's father feel about class division? What about Mr. Larrabee? Why does Sabrina transfer her affection from David to Linus? She accepts the Larrabees' bargain in the end -- is it for the money? Sabrina doesn't want to be a cook like her mother. What are her other options?
