If this movie were a big-band arrangement, it would be a duet for a sax man and a girl singer, but with the soloists in a different key from the band.

Martin Scorsese attempts to pay tribute to his musical forefathers, specifically Vincente Minnelli, with this colorful, misguided epic.

New York, New York often looks uneven and incoherent
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

New York, New York never fully comes together as a cohesive picture. Rather, it's a film with many parts that don't gel, much like its fabricated lead characters.

Martin Scorsese created a very handsome and dynamic film, but the spectacular set pieces don't add up to much.

Why should a man of Mr. Scorsese's talent be giving us what amounts to no more than a film buff's essay on a pop-film form that was never, at any point in film history, of the first freshness?

Martin Scorsese's musical saga "New York, New York" is the keenest disappointment of the summer.
May 24, 2003
A film with a great look and fabulous soundtrack but some of the most unattractive characters ever to disgrace a movie screen.

Martin Scorsese's New York, New York never pulls itself together into a coherent whole, but if we forgive the movie its confusions we're left with a good time.

A downbeat homage to bright-lights showbiz dramas, an epic orchestration that indulges in stubbornly obsessive riffs, Martin Scorsese's New York, New York (1977) seems to value awkwardness and indecision above all else.
June 24, 2011
A stagebound valentine, but one vigorously constructed down to the last detail, with Scorsese reveling in the costumes and music. It's an itch that spreads into a full-body rash in the final act.

It's the exact kind of craziness that could only have been made in the waning days of the 1970s.

In a final burst from Old Hollywood, Minnelli tears into the title song and it's a wowser.
January 26, 2006
Scorsese's tribute/parody/critique of the MGM musical is a razor-sharp dissection of the conventions of both meeting-cute romances and rags-to-riches biopics.
August 16, 2003
One of the best of all movie musicals, and one of the best of all Scorsese. Extraordinary.
| Original Score: 5/5
