After visiting New York for the first time, I had to order this DVD. The film captures the experience I had in NY: Everyone was from someplace else! The hot dog vendors, the cab drivers, hotel staff, store personnel, waiters, carriage drivers, street performers. I loved the scene in the cafe: so-called American waitress, the lawyer from Puerto Rico (or Cuba?), the Asian and the Russians. This may seem like flag waving and some critics might nitpick, but the film truly captures the flavor of NY. Now, whenever I want to go back there again, I watch this film. All the cast was great, plenty of humor, a feel-good movie that celebrates America. Watch for the scene where Robin Williams is being followed.
