The laughs come fast and breezy, just as Delpy intends.

September 12, 2012
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 ...

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
August 17, 2012
"2 Days in Paris" is as self-assured as it is slight, a deliberate diversion whose winsome charms never run dry.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
August 17, 2012
A manic and funny, if ultimately frustrating, sequel.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
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
August 16, 2012
Chatty, neurotic, maddeningly messy, often very funny, "New York" spins in a lunatic orbit of its own.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
August 16, 2012
The comedy works some of the time; the pathos, more so.

Julie Delpy has particularly impressed me over the years.

It's time for Delpy to leave Marion in New York for good and head back to Paris. Besides, the sausage is better there.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
August 10, 2012
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.

August 10, 2012
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.

August 10, 2012
2 Days in New York plays like 2 years in Attica.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
August 9, 2012
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.

August 9, 2012
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.
August 9, 2012
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
August 9, 2012
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
August 9, 2012
At least we'll always have 2 Days in Paris.
August 9, 2012
Without so much as a wink, it presents the French as racist, stinky, crude, self-absorbed, and obnoxious. It isn't a culture-clash comedy, so much as culture character assassination.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
August 8, 2012
It's a pleasure to meet up again with Marion, the distractible, acerbic, New York-based French photographer played once more by Julie Delpy in 2 Days in New York.
Full Review | Original Score: B+
August 7, 2012
Phrases are misunderstood! Tolerance for Euro-libertine ways are tested! Tame encounters turn into terrifying humiliations, because the French are, like, so crazy!
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
August 7, 2012
Delpy's project of stripping the makeup from her charismatic screen persona extends, unfortunately, to a general slovenliness of technique.
August 6, 2012
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
May 15, 2012
Delpy has a sharp eye for cross-cultural comic clangers.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
January 26, 2012
A tantalizing Franco-American stew for audiences with a taste for bawdy humor and nutty characters.
January 25, 2012
A scattershot culture-clash comedy that goes down like yesterday's foie gras.
