It's uncomfortable to take a negative stance against something that is so plainly a labor of love. But the sad truth is that the movie doesn't offer enough to make it interesting or even diverting.

A shoddy, sour handheld-video excursion
Anton Bitel

the film's narrative journey is too superficial to accommodate the late shift in tone from light French farce to a more sober reflection on love, aging and loneliness.

Smug and grating, having the form of the low-key Richard Linklater films Delpy has worked on but none of the substance.

There are funny jokes here and there, and of course Paris is lovely, but watching the two principals kvetch, moan, complain, obsess, and imagine illnesses for two hours gets quite tiring.

French actress/writer/director Julie Delpy ("Before Sunset") fails miserably with this Paris-set romantic farce where American girly-man Jack (Adam Goldberg) learns to loathe his slutty bipolar girlfriend Marion (Delpy).

Viewers may be disappointed when they realize not only that [the film] isn't a Paris Hilton sex tape but that Delpy has already exhausted her insight about relationships.

Delpy makes mistakes in this film by providing unnecessary narration... and assumptions about the audience from politics to sexual awareness

Delpy's script is less a tale than it is a series of character-revealing snapshots, so the personalities are all we have to work with. And they are not personalities that wear well at feature length.

Simply put, it's the worst film I've seen in ages.

This got its financing due to two lines, one about oral sex and the other about condoms. That accurately sums up the intellectual level of this 96-minute monotony.

All in all, Delpy has a good time mocking national identities and gender issues, but she doesn't make a case for Marion and Jack to stay together. If she doesn't care about them as a couple, why should we?

2 Days in Paris is a mix of awful Woody Allen and mental masturbation.

Save yourself the aggravation of 2 Days in Paris.

This is not a vanity project. It is an insanity project.

Ms. Delpy and Mr. Goldberg are clearly talented and versatile enough to make a more plausible and convincing couple, but the helter-skelter view of Paris in this film never gives them the chance.

There are some great moments of cross-cultural transference and culture clash captured by Delpy's dynamic camera, which organically flows between the conversations and social mishaps of her characters.

[Delpy has] created two original, quirky characters so obsessed with their differences that Paris is almost a distraction. I don't think I heard a single accordion in the whole film.

Delpy's skill, which is considerable and wide-ranging, points to better, fuller films in her directorial future.
