Critic Reviews for New York, I Love You

All Critics (98) | Top Critics (30)

At its best, it might be said that such a cinematic cacophony approximates the noise of Manhattan itself; but so much seems to be overlapping in this film that a feeling of distraction threatens to dispel the emotion

Film Comment Magazine

Cinema-goers won't find much to dig their teeth into with this disappointing collection of shorts.

Trespass

How easily you'll weather the film depends on your taste for poetic, obtuse cinema, often without too much of a rhyme or reason.

What Culture

A variety of wry, sentimental, mildly erotic tales that come over as pieces O Henry might have submitted to Playboy.

Guardian

The cinematography and editing is superb and makes up for any shortfalls with some of the stories, but the film's obvious draw will be its stellar ensemble cast.

If you've got a heart of treacle, an attention span of 15 minutes and can't afford the air fare then there are worse ways to spend a couple of hours.

Audience Reviews for New York, I Love You

The premise seemed to make for an interesting film but there was not much cohesion to it. Some of the stories are either too short or too artsy and left me with a sense of not really "getting it".

Such a great cast, such a waste. "New York, I love You" is a series of short stories about different people in New York, and their relationships. So many stories are meshed together that you really don't care for most of the characters or their situations. I hoped this was going to be a newer "Love Actually." Instead it's a collection of "arty" short films, strung together very poorly. You would think a cast that includes, Bradley Cooper, Orlando Bloom, Shia LeBouf, Natalie Portman, Chris Cooper, Christina Ricci, Justin Bartha, Ethan Hawke, Robin Wright Penn, Cloris Leachman, Maggie Q, Andy Garcia, Blake Lively, James Caan, Hayden Christensen, and Anton Yelchin would be a GREAT movie. Unfortunately, actors don't always make the movie. "New York, I Love You" I hate the yankees, and I hate you too. Don't watch this crap, no wonder I had never heard of it til I saw it on the shelf at the library,

I am shocked at all the bad reviews I have read regarding this film. I thought that this movie was beautiful, and imaginative. This was a definite joy to watch. I think maybe you need to be in the right mood for it, and understand what it's supposed to be? I enjoyed each of the vignettes, and couldn't wait for the next one. Wonderful actors - Portman, Cooper, Christensen, Garcia, Hawke, etc.--the list goes on and on! My favorite one has to be the one with Cloris Leachman...that one was a hoot. To me, this was a real gem....
