Audience Reviews for 2 Days in New York

  • Jul 18, 2013
    Not as layered, romantic, or leisurely as "2 Days In Paris." The comedy depends too much on culture clash jokes that don't satirize or reveal anything true or false about the respective cultures, and Chris Rock is uncharacteristically bland as he takes the brunt of well-intentioned racist observations that just kinda fall flat. Albert Delpy, Julie's real-life father, has a twinkling joie de vivre, and it's always nice to see German wunderkind, Daniel Brühl. The screwball Woody Allen-esque hijinx pick up after Marion's performance art piece of selling her soul to the highest bidder despite not believing in the soul, her subsequent entreaty to one Vincent Gallo, the buyer, to give it back, and her adorably neurotic distress over Gallo having eaten her soul. Julie Delpy is seriously balls-to-the-wall nuts, but she is also simply fantastic.

    Writer/director Julie Delpy delivers another pretentious and crude indie comedy in 2 Days in New York. The story of Marion continues in this sequel to 2 Days in Paris as this time her family comes to New York City to stay with her and her boyfriend. Unfortunately, the characters are rather callous and insipid, which sets a dark tone. The writing is appallingly bad and tries to be insightful, but comes off as arrogant. A lackluster comedy with very few laughs, 2 Days in New York has nothing to offer.

    Julie Delpy has now produced two very smart and funny romantic comedies with this and 2 days in Paris. This one is certainly broader in its comedy than Paris. I thought Paris focused more on the relationship between Marion and Jack and how the relationship disintegrates through Marion's actions. It was a very smart examination of an adult relationship. This movie focuses more on the culture clash of Marion's family with Mingus and how he's used to things. That's where most of the comedy comes from. The movie also focuses on Marion's dealing with the loss of her mother and how that affects her relationship with Mingus. The cast is tremendous. Julie Delpy is as charming and lovely as ever but she's not above being a bitch to get what she needs or to get someone off her back. She definitely feels human. Chris Rock is very good too, he's a good counterpart to Marion. This might be the first time in years where he didn't cone across as grating and annoying. Marion's family is a highlight of the film too, at least as far comedy goes. There's also a really weird but very funny Vincent Gallo cameo though I won't spoil it. So yea I really liked this film. It's another funny and intelligent adult romantic comedy from Julie Delpy.

    A hilarious comedy of manners. Good witty movie! Some scenes made me laugh so hard. Everyone who has been in relationships with someone from another country will definitely appreciate this movie. Finally, this movie is so New Yorkish that it makes it impossible not to like it! The best way to describe this is as a Woody Allen type movie (Woody had nothing to do with this) but that is the feel that it has. The comedy and humor is very offbeat but funny. The dialog in many places is witty and carries the movie. I have to say that this is a strange movie to see Chris Rock in, he does do a good job though, but it's still weird. The movie is pretty good, but the ending got a little bizarre. This is still basically a movie about crazy in-laws but it is pretty funny and worth seeing. Overall, if you are a fan of Woody Allen then you will probably like this movie. Marion (Delpy) has broken up with Jack (Two Days in Paris) and now lives in New York with their child. But when her family decides to come visit her, she's unaware that the different cultural background held by her new American boyfriend Mingus (Rock), her eccentric father, and her sister Rose who decided to bring her ex-boyfriend along for the trip, added to her upcoming photo exhibition, will make up for an explosive mix.
