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 misguided breezy offbeat sitcom, that visits all the wrong places."

Urban Cinefile
November 18, 2012

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

Louise Keller

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

Brent Simon
Shared Darkness
November 1, 2012

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.

Sitcom woes and hackneyed biography...

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).

This ebullient domestic comedy fairly radiates with a runner's high.

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 ...
