    The chatty, romantic roundelay takes a lighthearted look at the misadventures of six in the city.
  2. There's a lot of talk about sex in Sidewalks of New York, but precious little of it. And that's part of the point.
  3. Burns' movie shows a Woody.esque affection for a certain slice of New York and its denizens (with the angst and neuroses quieted down a notch or two).
  4. 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.

    The movie is funny without being hilarious, touching but not tearful, and articulate in the way that Burns is articulate, by nibbling earnestly around an idea as if afraid that the core has seeds.
  6. 75
    Romantic comedies don't have to be profound when they are as appealing as this one.

    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.

    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. Full Review »
