Eileen is 22 and is smarting from her breakup with Russ. She comes to New York to visit her brother, Adam, who is an airline pilot. Eileen confides to her brother that she thinks she may be the only 22 year old virgin left in the world. Adam assures her that sex is not what all men look for and insists he hasn't slept around. Of course, Adam is lying and is in hot pursuit of a tryst with his occasional girlfriend Mona. However, Adam's date with Mona has a series of job related interruptions. Meanwhile, Eileen decides to see if she can have some fun for herself in New York, and seems to find the perfect candidate in Mike, a man she meets on the bus. But things get complicated when Russ pops in with a proposal and a mistaken assumption. Written by
There is a skylight window in Adam's apartment similar to the apartment Jane Fonda shares with Robert Redford in "Barefoot in the Park." Robert Redford was in the stage production of "Sunday in New York." See more »

I am aware that my being a 17-year-old boy may place me in the minority, but I whole-heartedly enjoyed this movie. My dad kept telling me to watch this "sunday in new york," but I didn't want to because Maltin gave it three stars and Halliwell gave it one, and it was 6.something on IMDb. Eventually, I saw it and I actually really liked it. I never saw Jane Fonda in a role where she wasn't dirty, but she makes a great innocent character in this- better than Doris Day, in my opinion. The storyline works well, with some echoes of a Seinfeld-like plot and dialogue. If not for it's innocence, it might stand amongst the best movies of the decade, though I don't dislike it for that reason.
Its main two flaws are probably the contradictions in style: it is a movie obviously targeted towards women, but the most likable character is Jane Fonda's, and she is unquestionably... open sexually in the film. The other issue is that the movie seemingly prides itself on being innocent and charming, but for 1963, the sex-related dialogue and situations the characters are put into make it "raunchy" for the time.
Overall, I really liked this movie and think that it was hard done by through all three of the previously-mentioned critical sources. I didn't laugh once, but I rarely laugh in movies, so that's nothing to really go by.
8 out of 10 overall.
