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.'

A manic and funny, if ultimately frustrating, sequel.

"2 Days in New York" leaves you feeling drained. and its conclusion is very cliché. Not only could the movie have ended nearly 45-minutes beforehand, but it's like shaking a Magic-8 Ball and getting an "Ask again later" response.

Alas, swapping cities has done little to spice up Delpy's sitcomish take on culture clash and familial tensions.

David Ehrlich
Boxoffice Magazine
August 6, 2012

Another genial but stubbornly generic comedy that breaches obvious material with ribald flavoring and rabid charm.

The comedy in 2 Days in New York varies from uneven to failed. A lot of it isn't funny and some of what is, is overused.

Chris Rock shines in Julie Delpy's latest light and loose creation. But it's not on the same wonderful level as her Paris predecessor.

The Woody Allen-ish romantic strivings of the original film are replaced by family bickering as everyone goes at each other in the cramped apartment, to diminishing effect or purpose.

...illustrates the dangers of the comedy sequel.

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...

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

Andrew L. Urban

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

David Stratton

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.

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.

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.

Delpy's project of stripping the makeup from her charismatic screen persona extends, unfortunately, to a general slovenliness of technique.

Features exclusively annoying characters engaged in shenanigans that land a long way from any statement Delpy ineptly tries to make about love, family or death.

A talky 'culture-clash' comedy that's more annoying than funny.

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