A Woody Allen-style New York romcom, only with eleven year-olds.

Little Manhattan is the cutest, funniest, most heartbreaking and inspiring movie you will see all year

The freshness is authentic even when the whimsy grows hard to bear. The two leads are precocious in a way more typical of child actors than actual children.

A beautiful, layered, uplifting, dizzyingly romantic motion picture. This is one of the year's very best films, and one of its most unexpected cinematic treasures.

Spending about 90 minutes with these two does eventually warm the heart, even if they're stuck in a paint-by-numbers plot.
October 3, 2005
This grotesquely manipulative bit of whimsy is like sucking on a sugar cube for ninety minutes when each of your teeth is suffering from an exposed nerve.
September 30, 2005
A moderately charming comedy depicting a fumbling prepubescent first romance in a beautiful, fairy-tale version of the borough.
