Consensus: Although the film isn't as bad as feared (it wasn't pre-screened for reviews), it's not that good, either. Most noticable flaws are the sappy romantic cliches and lack of chemistry between Gere and Ryder.

Emanuel Levy
Variety

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.

[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.

Sappy and melodramatic.

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.

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...

An overly stylized romantic drama, Autumn in New York gets a little maudlin but has a compelling story to tell. Richard Gere plays a New York playboy who gets… More

This movie sucked but I got to look at Winona Ryder for a couple hours. So I don't care.
