Movie Info

In this sexy comedy, an innocent, but attractive virgin heads off to find adventure in the Big Apple and winds up falling in love. The highly principled lass goes to the New York apartment of her airline pilot brother to escape her over-amorous fiance who is increasingly unwilling to wait until their wedding night. Her brother supports her decision to stay pure and tells her that men prefer to marry virgins. He then secretly makes new plans to spend a spicy weekend with his lover in another city. Unfortunately, he is called to work after he makes his plans and is unable to contact his girl friend to tell her. Meanwhile, his innocent sister, left alone in the apartment, discovers that her brother lives by a double standard. Enraged, she decides to become a swinger too and so boards a downtown bus where she encounters a handsome, worldly bachelor. They are both attracted to each other and spend a lazy Sunday sightseeing and falling in love. A heavy downpour leads the drenched couple to the pilots apartment where they dry off. It's all innocent enough, but when both the repentant fiance and the girl's brother show up it's comical chaos.

Critic Reviews for Sunday in New York

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

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.

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.

Solid performances keep it entertaining, even if one does occasionally chuckle at the outdated discussions of sexual mores.

A fast, frantic, and sometimes funny sex comedy not unlike a thousand other sex comedies.

Audience Reviews for Sunday in New York


This romantic comedy is a classic time vault into the 1960's. If only cell phones were invented then, but alas it adds to the drama. Jane Fonda is a gem in this.

Katie Haycock

"And so they were married and went to Japan for their honeymoon, and had three lovely daughters, who grew up and were lectured by their father and of course me, their uncle, on the nice things that can happen to a girl, if she remains virtuous, even on a rainy Sunday in New York." Charming, sweet, love story that even your little girl could still watch, with Peter Nero music and an ending that is so romantic it makes my teeth ache.

Mary Jane Prothro-Jones

Rather typical of the sex farces from the 1960's. It is bolstered by some good performances from the leads (Jane Fonda, Cliff Robertson and Rod Taylor.) At times it seems a bit stagy and rehearsed. Nicely produced and the situations are amusing.
