So the smoothly assured, tonally agreeable, well proportioned Alfie is dead, which amounts to a mark against the concept of Jude Law being a movie star. No question that a $2935 average on 2215 screens for a $6.5 million total sucks. I don’t get it, I really don’t…this movie is far from a burn…but it’s dead now and it’s off to video. (It performed pretty well in England — go figure.) Paramount distrib chief Wayne Llewellyn suggested that one possible reason it flopped is that red-state moviegoers “didn’t want to see a guy that slept around.” Yeah, those red-staters are a pretty anti-libidinal bunch.
