Though the direction is lacking, "Sidewalks of New York" is a charming movie with great characters and a sharp script.

La cinta en el global es una opción atractiva si buscan una cinta ligera y que hable de un amor posible en un grupo de caóticos seres que cohabitan en ese micro-universo

Burns's ear for dialogue prevents it from becoming a forgotten footnote to a promising career.

Virtually every actor in "Sidewalks" gives a performance that is just begging for better, more challenging material.

While it may not have anything new to say about love, life, or even New York, it's entertaining enough to keep you occupied while you're waiting for Woody to return to form.

It's entertaining yakking, yakked by characters we enjoy watching.

Demonstrates that Ed Burns can make a satisfying movie.

Burns has a way with actors and a way with dialogue, but he hasn't matured to the point where he can offer up a slice of life that doesn't feel pre-programmed.
| Original Score: 3/5

A comedy/romance for the under forty crowd obsessed with sex, relationships, fidelity, and their neuroses.

Burns misses a chance to make a witty, observant film about contemporary sexual politics; instead, he comes up with his usual by-the-numbers portrait of lovesick New Yorkers.

Certainly recommendable to anyone looking for a solid date movie...

Little more than an occasionally amusing, often maddening rip-off of old Woody Allen multirelationship films.
Brian Webster
Apollo Guide
November 30, 2001
Treads well-worn ground and fails to make us really feel for its half dozen self absorbed relationship-challenged characters.
| Original Score: 67/100

At first, it seems like Burns' most unoriginal, least exciting movie to date. But it's much more than that because Burns brings some astute, prickly observations to the mix and actually works against the idea of predictability.

If Sidewalks is still a pretty hard film to laugh at, that's not because it stirs horrific memories. The laughs don't come easily because the humor often feels forced.

It's hard enough for Allen to make a great movie these days. The last thing we need is a second-rate talent aping him.
Nick Carter
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
November 30, 2001
The psychobabble never reaches Allen-esque levels; an overriding innocence and optimism corrals the dialogue and redeems even the older, more complicated psyches in the ensemble.

Miami Herald

The film uncovers no hidden truths about relationships except one: Romantic comedies don't have to be profound when they are as appealing as this one.
