...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?

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

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

Finally ... the melodrama does take over.

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.

While Autumn in New York is a dreadful film, it's not substantially worse than a lot of the what spills out of Tinseltown during the hot season.

This is one dog of a romantic drama where nothing works and the efforts are far more likely to induce groans and laughter rather than the intended sobs and sympathy.

As old-fashioned, sentimental romances go, this well-played Kleenex saga is slightly above average.

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.
