Autumn in New York
Successful restaurateur Will Keane is on the verge of turning fifty, yet he's still quite the playboy with a persistent case of commitment-phobia. When he meets Charlotte Fielding, a free spirited woman half his age, he expects another quick and easy romance. But their nothing about their relationship is quick or easy. Instead their encounters are rife with intergenerational clashes, differing philosophies and an urgent sense of sensuality and connection.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Utterly banal, Joan Chen's tediously sappy romance is a kind of modern-day Love Story (a better film!) with a "twist": Richard Gere's suave lover is old enough to be Winona Ryder's father."
‑ Emanuel Levy, Variety
"[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."
‑ Peter Rainer, New York Magazine/Vulture
"Tax forms have more emotional content."
‑ Jeffrey Westhoff, Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
"Melodrama is bad enough, contrived melodrama is worse, and badly written contrived melodrama is Autumn in New York."
‑ Tim Cogshell, Boxoffice Magazine
"The quintessential chick flick, and it's not going to seduce anyone who doesn't have a taste for this kind of schmaltz in the first place. But for what it is, it's well done."
‑ Stephen Farber, Movieline
"All style and no substance."
‑ Loren King, Boston Globe
"A banal and sappy romantic melodrama"
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Weak and unmemorable."
‑ Scott Nash, Three Movie Buffs
"Just what it promises to be: a Love Story-style romance."
‑ Chuck Rudolph, Matinee Magazine
"Am I the only person who is tired of seeing actors play characters who fall in love with beautiful women half their age?"
‑ Blake French, NutzWorld
"Sappy and melodramatic."
‑ Christy Lemire, Associated Press
"To sit through this is to suffer the grossest sweaty-palms-on-the-glass sex scene. Funny that the film closes with an overbearing end-credits song by Jennifer Paige - a one-hit wonder who, like "Autumn," is a pop-culture footnote best left forgotten."
‑ Nick Rogers,
"Were you to watch the movie's first 20 minutes, you might think you were about to see another variation on Gere's megahit 'Pretty Woman'... Once it's revealed that Charlotte is a Pretty Sick Woman, however, the film becomes dour and tedious..."
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"Nauseating amount of glucose sentiment."
‑ Neil Smith,
"If [Gere and Ryder are] not the most charmless doomed lovers of all time they come damned close."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
