[Delpy] and Rock, in the midst of free-flying French chaos, find a sweet chemistry together ...
| Original Score: 3/4

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.

Chris Rock and Julie Delpy make an energetic, discombobulated, thoroughly 21st-century screwball comedy couple.

[Delpy] makes New York, and Marion's crazy life, worth spending more than two days getting to know.

"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.

It's a predictable sort of humor, but it's played with intelligence, wit, charm and, blissfully, very little pretense.

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.

The French, they are a funny race, oui? Well, on the evidence of Julie Delpy's sequel to her 2007 film '2 Days in Paris,' the answer is definitely non.

With her new film, Delpy continues her theme -- children exhibiting different personalities around their parents -- but with a much better groundwork.

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

Time Out Chicago

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

"2 Days in Paris" is as self-assured as it is slight, a deliberate diversion whose winsome charms never run dry.

A manic and funny, if ultimately frustrating, sequel.

San Francisco Chronicle
August 16, 2012
It's extremely funny, one of the funniest films of 2012, with a particularly winning style - far-fetched, extreme and nonstop.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4

A matchless New York romantic comedy with language full of smarts and crudeness, 2 Days in New York brings audiences a hilarious 48-hour portrait of an atypical modern family.

Chatty, neurotic, maddeningly messy, often very funny, "New York" spins in a lunatic orbit of its own.

Steven Rea
Philadelphia Inquirer
August 16, 2012
Finds its comedy in the familiar annoyances of urban life (a contentious neighbor, random acts of vandalism), in the conflict between parents and siblings, but also in bigger, kookier, existential quandaries.

It's just a likable little movie without pretension to be anything more.

I can't think of another filmmaker who's shot her towel-clad dad, Albert Delpy, bending over with the family jewels prominently on display.
Matt Pais
RedEye
August 16, 2012
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.
