The funny thing about this film is, although it is about all sorts of permutations ofd how human wreck their relationships (married man cheating on spouse, young waitress having affair with married man, young divorcee regretting breaking up marrieage), it isn't sad! It is actually upbeat and comedic.
The cast is great -- Ed Burns, Rosario Dawson, Brittany Murphy, Heather Graham, etc. The funniest is David Krumholtz as Ben, divorced from Maria, but always dropping by because he "was in the neighborhood". ("You live 3 blocks away!" she yells. "You're always in the neighborhood!") Most scuzzy is Stanley Tucci as Griffin, cheating on Annie, his second wife, with Ashley, a waitress whom he never takes out in public. When Ashley won't see him anymore, he says he'll tell his wife, then curses her for breaking up his marriage. NOTHING is his fault!
This film just tells us how it is or could be -- not every broken marriage results in unhappiness, not ever dalliance brings joy. It just depends on the people and the situation.

"Sidewalks of New York" is an interesting evening's entertainment. Edward Burns is a good romantic lead despite his high-pitched raspy voice. He always seems to be going in two different directions at once, which makes him interesting to watch. One reviewer said that the problem with this as a romantic comedy is that there are no really good guys. Even Ed Burns' character Tommy hits on Annie (Heather Graham) when he's seeing Maria (Rosario Dawson). Maybe the good guys just don't live in New York! Overall, I liked the women characters much more than the men. David Krumholtz as Ben walks around in an doorman's uniform. He had a small part in "The Mexican" with Brad Pitt & Julia Roberts and was memorable in "10 Things I Hate About You." He does a nice job of being a passive-aggressive romancer. Dennis Farina is hysterical as the self-involved Romeo who counsels Tommy on how to successfully hit on women with the memorable pearl that he should spray cologne on his balls, only to have Maria wonder about what kind of guy would do that after their first date. Stanley Tucci who was great as Puck in "A Midsummer Night's Dream" plays the chronic cheating husband who worries about his size to the hilt. Heather Graham who did a nice job in "From Hell" with Johnny Depp and also appeared in "Austin Powers in Goldmember" is most real as the pretty wife with traditional values. Rosario Dawson who played with Will Smith in "Men In Black II" does a great job as the school teacher who dates Tommy. Brittany Murphy is accomplished as the waitress Ashley who has an affair with Stanley Tucci's Griffin. From her role opposite Michael Douglas in "Don't Say A Word" to her part in "Girl, Interrupted" and even her splash in "Riding In Cars With Boys," she shows great range as an actress.Read more ›

Prior to seeing Woody Allen's worst movie, "The Curse of the Jade Scorpion," I probably would have given Ed Burns's "Sidewalks of New York" a 4 star review because it was too derivative of Woody Allen's work. However, "Curse" showed that Allen is now past being able to make this kind of film and that someone new must step up to the writing, directing, acting helm of these gem-like, relationship slice-of-life films. Ed Burns fills that void very nicely indeed and it is a lot to ask, that someone be able to write, direct and act. Burns himself will never be a comic like Woody Allen but he is a more credible romantic leading man, being young, handsome and with attractive ways about him. This film takes a handful of New Yorkers and puts them into a variety of relationship quandries. Stanley Tucci portrays the least sympathetic as a dentist who suffers from chronic infidelity no matter to whom he is currently married. I was glad to see Brittany Murphy in another role after seeing her play the psychiatric patient to Michael Douglas's psychiatrist in last year's thriller. She is an actress to watch as she is quite different here as Tucci's girlfriend who starts angling towards a New York doorman on the side. Heather Graham does a Mia Farrow like role as Annie, who becomes the Burns the love interest, although it is nip and tuck with the Rosario Dawson biracial teacher with Burns first. There is a scene stealer in this movie though and that actor is Dennis Farina as the older man who counsels Burns on seducing women throughout. He is an absolute lounge lizard creep, a complete turnoff to women everywhere, but I was laughing out loud and holding my sides every time he was on camera.Read more ›

Sidewalks of New York is a film that wants oh-so-badly to be 'hip.' Unfortunately for Mr. Burns, trying to be 'hip' is the one thing that is absolutely guaranteed to spoil the effect. It is also a film that desperately wants to be Husbands and Wives. Again, unfortunately, Burns is decidedly no Woody Allen.
I actually sort of vaguely remember maybe liking She's the One, but I barely remember that film at all, so I'm going to go ahead and say that he isn't a very good filmmaker. Life just isn't fair, is it?
Burns seems to have a reputation for being able to write good dialogue, but he really can't--no, what he does is write his approximation of how he thinks cool people ought to talk, peppered with his own allegedly clever commentary about love, which essentially boils down to shockers about how men and women are, you know, different, and relationships are, you know complicated--for a film that's meant to be a hip, irreverant view of relationships, there's precious little actual insight here. I'd go so far as to say there's none, actually.
Burns's characters are--let's not fool ourselves--shallow and dull. Not that shallow and dull characters can't be made to be interesting, but Burns, as previously noted, is no Woody Allen. And in any case, they're not MEANT to be that way here. They are annoying and artificial, with somewhat disturbingly one-tracked minds (sex, natch), frequently acting how Burns needs them to act to get a properly pat ending, rather than in any way that actual humans would behave. And on a side note, how is it that a movie about Modern Love has no gay characters?
Okay, so it's not all bad--I liked it when characters yelled at each other, (yelling's always fun), and Dennis Farina is somewhat amusing as a uber-Don Juan type, but honestly, people, is this what passes for clever nowadays? And so our standards continue to drop...
