Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"While many of the segments amuse, and rarely wear out their welcome (the average running time is eight minutes apiece), it rapidly becomes apparent that each of them has some kind of twist, like an O Henry short story."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"Because so many of the segments are about young lovers, the standouts involve people past their prime."
‑ Joe Williams, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"At its best, it might be said that such a cinematic cacophony approximates the noise of Manhattan itself; but so much seems to be overlapping in this film that a feeling of distraction threatens to dispel the emotion"
‑ David Zuckerman, Film Comment Magazine
"A variety of wry, sentimental, mildly erotic tales that come over as pieces O Henry might have submitted to Playboy."
‑ Philip French, Guardian
"Let's just stay friends."
‑ Adam Woodward, Little White Lies
"It's a bit too arty, and a bit too cute, but it charms and cajoles with the pluck of a native New Yorker."
‑ Amy Biancolli, San Francisco Chronicle
"The film only feels like two or three different sort of approaches are represented. They don't really feel like widely different attacks on the material."
‑ Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"Cinema-goers won't find much to dig their teeth into with this disappointing collection of shorts."
‑ Glenn Dunks, Trespass
"The cinematography and editing is superb and makes up for any shortfalls with some of the stories, but the film's obvious draw will be its stellar ensemble cast."
‑ Lisa Giles-Keddie,
"This sequel to the superior Paris Je T'Aime is pleasant but inconsequential."
‑ David Gritten, Daily Telegraph
"The project is lush and seductive as a whole, though some segments are especially vibrant."
‑ Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader
"The characters are all more or less useless, inhabiting the frivolous tippy-top of Maslow's pyramid of needs, with little sense that there's anyone essential at the bottom. It's fun, but decadent."
‑ Philip Kennicott, Washington Post
"How easily you'll weather the film depends on your taste for poetic, obtuse cinema, often without too much of a rhyme or reason."
‑ Shaun Munro, What Culture
"If you've got a heart of treacle, an attention span of 15 minutes and can't afford the air fare then there are worse ways to spend a couple of hours."
‑ Catherine Shoard, Guardian
"Is New York I Love You meant to be a love-letter to the Big Apple? As far as I could tell, it was a seething satire about the city's sleazy, vapid, self-involved stereotypes."
‑ Simon Miraudo, Quickflix
