Hip talk-radio host and journalist Mingus (Chris Rock) and his French photographer girlfriend, Marion (Julie Delpy), live cozily in a New York apartment with their cat and two young children from previous relationships. But when Marion's jolly father (played by Delpy's real-life dad, Albert Delpy), her oversexed sister, and her sister's outrageous boyfriend unceremoniously descend upon them for an overseas visit, it initiates two unforgettable days of family mayhem. The visitors push every

While it's nowhere near a perfect film, 2 Days in New York is worth seeing, not only for the comedy but also for the realism of the smaller moments.
[Delpy] and Rock, in the midst of free-flying French chaos, find a sweet chemistry together ...
Much of the alleged humor is based on French-English language gags, or cultural differences or continental mores vs. the priggishness of Americans, but it's all more irritating than funny.
"2 Days in Paris" is as self-assured as it is slight, a deliberate diversion whose winsome charms never run dry.
There are a lot of laugh-out-loud scenes, but few hold together well enough to make for a smooth-flowing narrative equal to '2 Days in Paris.'
This very funny, very smart comedy about New York intellectuals meeting a French invasion of sorts is much like a Woody Allen film, but it is written and directed by Julie Delpy.
Rock tries playing it straight, but can't help himself; Delpy is lovably daffy; the film has a breezy, honest air.
I started out thinking this is really forced and then I thought it was really self consciously cute and then I thought it was really unfunny and then I got to the point of hating it and then I wanted her to die.
This is a catastrophically unfunny sequel in which the possibilities for a French-American culture clash are quickly doomed by the cruelly unfunny dialogue and some very bad performances.
Episodic and sluggishly paced, 2 Days in New York has no drive and no story tension and for some that won't matter since the film's manic energy seems to derive from the fact that everyone here talks fast and loud and often...
Delpy seems fascinated by the way that time and life experience change people's perceptions and attitudes, but not their cores.
Julie Delpy's smartest move as a director is to feature Julie Delpy so prominently in her films. That endless reservoir of charm is drawn from yet again in her latest effort, an unnecessary but not unappealing sequel.
Delpy is unlikely to set the world on fire with these farcical outings of the absurd, but it's a pleasure to see her back onscreen, doing what she loves.
A meandering, spineless set of comedic sketches. Much is made of things like the name Mingus rhyming with cunnilingus, part of the general tone of candid sexual referencing that jars - not because it's shocking but because it is pointless
In a misconceived dallying with culture clash, Julie Delpy's exploration in this disappointing follow up to 2 Days in Paris never even gets close to taking off
A witty, winning new comedy of relationships and culture-clash that eschews complicated plotting to instead luxuriate in a fresh, fun, wound-up energy all its own.
Like Woody Allen on speed, only with neuroses flipped into cocksureness and everyone bickering, bickering, bickering until you want to reach into the screen and punch them all in the face. It's nails on a chalkboard.
The style is much looser and more prone to take stylistic chances (which, fortunately, pay off).
