The script feels artificial largely because the main characters' dialogue comes across unnatural.

[Chen] has a lovely sense of film rhythm and a sophisticated eye for luxe effects, but she fell into this vat of goo and there's no climbing out of it.

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.

Enjoyment of Autumn in New York depends to a certain degree on a viewer's tolerance for a mood of luxurious melancholy. At 105 minutes, it becomes too much of an indulgence.

The actors are forced to labor through such laughable lines as: 'Love is not a race,' 'You don't dance, you float' and other whoppers no sensible girl would buy for a second.

As it turned out, the film wasn't so bad, but it wasn't much good either. It was just sort of ... there.

Sappy and melodramatic.

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

Has no shortage of howlers and telegraphs its plot twists a mile away- but this ultra-glossy weepie turns out to be something of a guilty pleasure almost because of its extreme predictability.

To be sure, not all of the dialogue is compelling or surprising.

Though individually attractive, together Gere and Ryder are as unappetizing a combo as pimento and peach.

A pleasant surprise.

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

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.

This unpredictable, even rigorous film deserves a chance to find its audience.

A diaphanous daydream of clichés, predictable developments, strained romance, and frequently embarrassing dialogue.
January 1, 2000
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.
