The comedy works some of the time; the pathos, more so.

Julie Delpy has particularly impressed me over the years.

In a roundelay of familiar themes and people, writer-director-star Julie Delpy changes her objects of affection from Paris to New York

The film too often stumbles through broad and predictable gags about language and cultural barriers.

It's time for Delpy to leave Marion in New York for good and head back to Paris. Besides, the sausage is better there.

2 DAYS IN PARIS is a really solid, accessible indie sleeper- and hopefully people will give it a chance

Whether the things that happen actually add up to a whole movie will be a matter of debate, depending on individual taste. I found it diverting, if not a lot more than that.

Delpy's good at keeping Marion's complaints sharp and funny, rather than wan and whiny. Even so, the movie's a bumpy ride as her good farcical instincts vie with the yen for cheap laughs.

About six hours of those "2 Days in New York" don't work at all. And, coming as they do at the end, they tend to deflate the charm of the trip.

2 Days in New York plays like 2 years in Attica.

The film's jokes are occasionally unfunny and its tone is frequently shrill. But you know what? Life is occasionally unfunny and frequently shrill. This movie understands that.

The film gets at a universal truth: everyone knows how to deal with their own crazy family, but dealing with the crazy family of your significant other takes some real adjustment.

The film, which is about a chaotic 48 hours in Marion's life, succumbs to the chaos it depicts, and so undermines its best intentions. It is, all in all, a likable mess.
| Original Score: 3/5

Julie Delpy's madcap touch is once more evident in the disheveled comedy and bracing, freeform mis-en-scène that plants organized chaos on the screen.

The screenplay - which was written by Delpy, Landeau and Nahon - has a jittery kind of honesty about it, which Rock and Delpy sometimes push to its limits.

Julie Delpy is boundlessly appealing. And Chris Rock is acerbic fun. But the frenzied cross-cultural gags take the piss out of the real subject: how blood ties can turn love into a battlefield.

Delpy and Rock click so well together that we'd much rather hang out at home with them, instead of racing around the city with sitcommish supporting characters.
