Eleven vignettes, all homages to New York City life, are presented. I. Ben (Hayden Christensen), a pickpocket, is attracted to Molly (Rachel Bilson) at first sight, and gets into an interesting "pissing match" with Molly's married lover, New York University professor Garry (Andy Garcia). II. Mansuhkhbai (Irrfan Khan), an orthodox Jain diamond wholesaler, and Rifka (Natalie Portman), an orthodox Jewish diamond retailer who is getting married tomorrow, learn that they have more in common than just diamonds. III. David (Orlando Bloom), a musician and music editor for a video being directed by Abarra, is having problems meeting Abarra's demands while he slowly falls for Abarra's assistant, Camille (Christina Ricci), who he's never met, but has only talked to on the telephone solely about work.

Have you ever made love to a perfect stranger?
Now you're teasing me.
I believe I am.
Well, I mean... No, not exactly a perfect stranger, if you mean someone I wouldn't know at all.
It's sad? Why?

Don't... Don't tell me your name.

10 stories cramped together in 110 mins. The result can be guessed - each story not getting enough time. Moreover, the characters don't have the required depth or layers. Having such a star-studded cast, the movie doesn't have any impact and doesn't show much of cultural diversity, chaos, etc...
The movie is no comparison to 'Paris Je 'taime'. But, since New York is a city close to my heart, it made a pleasant watch for me.
My favourite story out of the 10 was the one with the high school prom. The story was different and amusing. Second was the one with the growing apart couple.
