New York Minute isn't High Art, but it is highly entertaining, especially if you're a member of its target audience.

Cheerfully disconnected from the real world, bearing a great resemblance to screwball comedies of old.

Chicago Tribune

By Mark Caro
The cinematic equivalent of Trix. It's just made to be enjoyed by certain folks more than others. Will girls like it? More than their parents.

The cast is cute and the action is colorful, but the comedy isn't as captivating as it sets out to be.

San Francisco Chronicle

By Ruthe Stein
It lives up to its title, flying by in fast motion. Even the first-wave MTV generation may find the pace exhausting, but this piece of fluff wasn't made for them.

The movie may be more bogus than a Gucci bag for sale on a Fifth Avenue sidewalk, but at least the backgrounds are real.
