  • Norman Krasna's screenplay, from his Broadway legiter, doesn't really get rolling until it has virtually marked time for almost an hour, but once it gets up this head of steam the entire complexion of the picture seems to change.

  • Let's just say that Peter Tewksbury's direction makes the whole thing move like clockwork on the screen, where it is done in delicious Metrocolor, and that, naturally, no one gets hurt.

    May 9, 2005 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A film that's utterly charming in its presentation if hopelessly dated in its sexual politics.

    June 14, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • It's a cute little story of mistaken identity, budding relationships and potential sexual awakening. It's cute, and it's not meant to be anything more.

    October 14, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Solid performances keep it entertaining, even if one does occasionally chuckle at the outdated discussions of sexual mores.

    February 17, 2011 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • A fast, frantic, and sometimes funny sex comedy not unlike a thousand other sex comedies.

Audience Reviews for Sunday in New York

  • Dec 17, 2019
    Jane Fonda plays a well-off young woman escaping the hypocritical conventions of small-minded, small town class society to wonder aloud..."what's a good age for a girl to lose her virginity?" (when posing the question alone very nearly begs one not to see this). This curious and queasy effort is nicely played for comedy's sake against the big city backdrop, New York in the early 60s. Jane Fonda and Rod Taylor play it all very straight, easing the squeamish factor somewhat, until it falls comfortably into established rom-com territory again about mid-feature. The secondary cast do well here with their portion of Norman Krasna's "topical" script. It's interesting, too, to note the prominence of references to Peter Nero, the film an outright and obvious advertisement for his music. Was he a producer?

    When my non-flixster movie fan friends were sharing their Top 10 for 2007 lists, I got into a discussion with Cheryl, a woman who knows more about film than I could ever hope to fathom. We finally decided that there just weren't enough 2007 films to dig up a "top" ten, so we decided to include some "older" ones we'd viewed either for the first time, or for the first time in a while. We both coincidentally agreed that Wong Kar Wai's <i>2046</i> should be on the list, and that Fellini's <i>La Strada</i> was possibly the 2007 great view for all time for us both. Cheryl said, eyes closed and massaging her temples, "Gee, I hope I'm not getting to that age where I start saying, 'the only good ones are the old ones.'" She's fifteen years older than I am, but I give you my sworn word that she is not anywhere near getting old enough to say that old films are the best. <p> Flixsters, this 1963 movie is wonderful. Really. I'm not just saying that because I'm an old guy. I promise. Yes, there are hokey moments. Hokey with a capital H. As Walter might say, you can tell from the dialog that this is a movie adapted from a play. It is very clever at times, dialog driven, and very Hokey, as I say, at times. We're talking 1963 here, flixster friends, but romance, and more specifically romantic comedy, when it's done well, is truly timeless. This is what happens, no matter when a movie is made, when you get four very smart, very camera savvy actors to click together. And click they most certainly do. Cliff Robertson, Jane Fonda, Rod Taylor, and Robert Culp are chemistry dynamite here together. A true pleasure to experience, and it's climbing into my Top 100 right now.
