Consensus: Like many anthologies, New York, I Love You has problems of consistency, but it isn't without its moments.

Peter Howell
Toronto Star

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.

Joe Williams
St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Because so many of the segments are about young lovers, the standouts involve people past their prime.

David Zuckerman
Film Comment Magazine

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

It's a bit too arty, and a bit too cute, but it charms and cajoles with the pluck of a native New Yorker.

Chicago Tribune

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.

Glenn Dunks

Cinema-goers won't find much to dig their teeth into with this disappointing collection of shorts.

Andrea Gronvall
Chicago Reader

The project is lush and seductive as a whole, though some segments are especially vibrant.

Philip Kennicott
Washington Post

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.

How easily you'll weather the film depends on your taste for poetic, obtuse cinema, often without too much of a rhyme or reason.

Patchy. Like all movies made up of many short stories, some of it is interesting, some of it may have not bothered.

I am shocked at all the bad reviews I have read regarding this film. I thought that this movie was beautiful, and imaginative. This was a definite joy to watch.… More

The premise seemed to make for an interesting film but there was not much cohesion to it. Some of the stories are either too short or too artsy and left me with… More

A convulted and weirdly trippy film, created buzz with all it's A listers. It seems that adapting from the original didn't go so well.

Such a great cast, such a waste. "New York, I love You" is a series of short stories about different people in New York, and their relationships. So… More

In it's own right, "NEW YORK I LOVE YOU" is (about) just as good as "PARIS, JE T'AIME," though the bizarre and oddly realised… More
