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

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.

...the feel of an old-school weeper...

All style and no substance.

If [Chen] is able to take such predictable storylines and breathe life into them, chances are good she'll have a long and successful career in Hollywood.

Emanuel Levy

A banal and sappy romantic melodrama

Sappy and melodramatic.

Robert Horton

Finally ... the melodrama does take over.

Nick Rogers

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.

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.
