    The chatty, romantic roundelay takes a lighthearted look at the misadventures of six in the city.

    The film's flaws seem unimportant, and it passes the big test, making you want to find out what happens to these characters, even when what does happen is predictable.
  3. It's by far the best cast Burns has assembled -- so much so that, unlike his other films, he doesn't come near dominating it.
  4. 50
    Wears out its welcome fast because of its artistic pretensions and self-absorbed characters. You'd be better off renting "Manhattan" instead.
  5. 50
    Though the acting in "Sidewalks" is uniformly fine, particularly among the female cast, it's hard to glimpse any meaningful vision, sly insights or cinematic flair.
  6. Burns' trite talk and familiar romantic conflicts doesn't do any of the characters any favors. Everyone comes off flat and forced, with one notable and lovely exception: Dawson.
  7. Dramatically and conceptually, the movie sits there, flat, naked and trying too hard with too little.

    I really liked it. It's a film about sex and relationships of average people, in this case New Yorkers. Acting is decent, and the I really liked it. It's a film about sex and relationships of average people, in this case New Yorkers. Acting is decent, and the charecters are realistic and bright. Beats the larger then life action packed crap if you're in the mood for something about real life. Expand
