There's nothing magical about the romance in Autumn in New York, and nothing even very tragic about its love affair.

Autumn in New York is saddled with a sappy, silly script.

Ryder looks like she doesn't want to be anywhere near Gere, no less have him touch her.

A perfectly respectable weeper.

This love story never convincingly goes beyond the depth of two good-looking people falling in love based on their looks.

Hardly the all-stops-out tearjerker it strives to be.

A diaphanous daydream of clichés, predictable developments, strained romance, and frequently embarrassing dialogue.

The movie's biggest fatality is the lack of chemistry between the two stars. Even in their most amorous moments, they seem like a randy uncle and his sad-eyed niece.

A throwback to conventional soap-opera romance which would be fortunate to find an enthusiastic audience on afternoon TV.

Finally ... the melodrama does take over.

A workmanlike product that offers occasional, small moments of satisfaction, but, as a whole, is apt to leave audiences wondering why they should care.

If the movie ... exhibits a loving eye for Manhattan exteriors, it's undone by its own rigidly old-fashioned conventions.

A movie that teaches respect for "feelings" through a cocky middle-aged NYC restaurateur who learns he is capable of love in relationship with a vivacious young woman.

The film works best of all as a vehicle for Richard Gere, who has simply never looked better or held the screen more securely.

The predictable screenplay overcomes the obvious age difference and eventually generates genuine emotion.

Charlotte and Will make a charming couple, but that has a lot to do with Ryder's doomed gamine presence and Gere's world-weary rogue.

If [Chen] is able to take such predictable storylines and breathe life into them, chances are good she'll have a long and successful career in Hollywood.

Gere and Ryder look great, but with sparkless chemistry, and Gere spending his screen time making sad excuses for his misguided heart, this one's colder than, well, a winter in New York.
