...the feel of an old-school weeper...

A banal and sappy romantic melodrama

To sit through this is to suffer the grossest sweaty-palms-on-the-glass sex scene. Funny that the film closes with an overbearing end-credits song by Jennifer Paige - a one-hit wonder who, like "Autumn," is a pop-culture footnote best left forgotten.

Utterly banal, Joan Chen's tediously sappy romance is a kind of modern-day Love Story (a better film!) with a "twist": Richard Gere's suave lover is old enough to be Winona Ryder's father.

Were you to watch the movie's first 20 minutes, you might think you were about to see another variation on Gere's megahit 'Pretty Woman'... Once it's revealed that Charlotte is a Pretty Sick Woman, however, the film becomes dour and tedious...

Melodrama is bad enough, contrived melodrama is worse, and badly written contrived melodrama is Autumn in New York.

Just what it promises to be: a Love Story-style romance.

Nauseating amount of glucose sentiment.

The quintessential chick flick, and it's not going to seduce anyone who doesn't have a taste for this kind of schmaltz in the first place. But for what it is, it's well done.

Am I the only person who is tired of seeing actors play characters who fall in love with beautiful women half their age?

A respectable enough love story that holds so much promise, yet doesn't seem to have had the screenplay kinks worked out before shooting commenced.

If [Gere and Ryder are] not the most charmless doomed lovers of all time they come damned close.

The picture is a veritable bouquet of ardent cliches and witless sentiments.

All style and no substance.

Chen ... keeps things so downy soft that you're parched for a little drama -- a spat here hurts about as much as a slumber-party pillow fight.

The biggest miracle here would be if this movie is still in theaters come autumn.

I couldn't help rooting for Charlotte's tumor.

Richard Gere and Winona Ryder are never credible as a couple.
