...an impressive, funny urban comedy of manners from a suitably distinctive voice that I hope we'll hear again soon.
September 22, 2007
A movie that is as acutely painful as it is acutely funny.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

The last time I laughed so hard at a movie, it was Nigel Tufnel telling us his amplifier went to 11.

2 Days in Paris proves Delpy's got an authentic ear for humor in two languages, and she turns the dewy-eyed notion of Paris as a city for lovers firmly and affectionately on its tête.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
August 31, 2007
Bright and engaging a great deal of the time, but it ends up exhausted.

August 31, 2007
Delpy does the old-[Woody] Allen thing a lot better than most, and does for Paris what Allen did for Manhattan, making it look newly romantic even to those who have lived there all their lives.

August 31, 2007
Partly a study of cross-national relationships and partly a homecoming comedy on Delpy's part, 'Two Days in Paris' neatly balances stabs at both America and the French.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/6
August 30, 2007
Goldberg and Delpy also give their characters a wistful charm, and Delpy's zippy, dialog-heavy screenplay sparkles with wit.

August 24, 2007
Delpy has a knack for finding just the right details; filming in her own hometown, she fills the movie with funny cross-cultural observances.

August 24, 2007
It's possible to watch 2 Days in Paris and have absolutely no idea who's calling the shots. This is excellent news because it means that we gain a director without losing an actress.

August 24, 2007
Satirical and casual in its approach, and Delpy's grasp of the material is assured.
August 24, 2007
[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.

Sweet and discreet.

August 24, 2007
2 Days in Paris may seem familiar, with its manic, walking-and-talking rhythms reminiscent of Woody Allen and Diane Keaton in the 1970s. But you never know where it's going, which is one of the film's greatest pleasures.

August 23, 2007
Delpy is such an infectiously appealing personality, she almost wills this movie to work. And for laughs, Goldberg has some pretty funny moments as an eternally frazzled, put-upon neurotic who hates Paris and the French.
August 23, 2007
Delpy's skill, which is considerable and wide-ranging, points to better, fuller films in her directorial future.

August 15, 2007
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.
August 14, 2007
I thought it really captured what happens to couples often when they're not in their home base.
August 10, 2007
Some of it is funny and insightful; some makes you cringe. But it's still entertaining.

August 10, 2007
Delpy's humor [runs] to the black and the tossed off -- rather like her rather casual shooting style. She's more interested in hasty impressions than in formal elegance.
August 10, 2007
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.

August 10, 2007
The movie is just a situation salad, at least until the end, when things start to pull together a bit.

August 10, 2007
Delpy wrote the dialogue that gives the film its forward thrust, and 2 Days is a wonderful first feature.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
August 10, 2007
The film [has] a wonderfully natural, comfy feel. Delpy is worth watching both in front of and behind the camera.

For all the verbal jokery, it's more tragedy than farce.

Julie Delpy's and Adam Goldberg's performances are so assured and spontaneous that they don't even seem to be acting.

August 9, 2007
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
August 9, 2007
Delpy's wry, acerbic sense of humor and privileged perspective make her the ultimate outsider-insider, perfectly positioned to ask the most astute questions.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
August 9, 2007
That this one is even bearable is a surprise; that it's occasionally insightful and hilarious is a treat.
August 9, 2007
Much of the nattery byplay seems improvised, and the results are very hit and miss -- inspired contretemps alternate with gabfests that seem to go on forever.
Full Review | Original Score: B
August 9, 2007
As 2 Days in Paris zings along from one overamped frogs-vs.-Yanks cliché to the next, two things happen: Delpy's direction begins to give the characters more air and space, and you adjust to its hectic pace.
August 9, 2007
[Delpy] stages it with a funny and diverting improv-y flow.

August 7, 2007
With the dithery Marion playing off Jack's nattering nebbish of negativism, Delpy invokes the Woody Allen-Diane Keaton chemistry of the '70s as consciously as Allen referenced the European art movies of the '60s.
August 6, 2007
The movie should be seen with a large, responsive audience -- the better to live with it in the moment instead of worrying about where it's going.
August 6, 2007
This is not a vanity project. It is an insanity project.
April 2, 2007
An utterly charming comedy of sexual manners that should do very well wherever audiences appreciate savvy dialogue and smart, observational filmmaking.
April 2, 2007
An entertaining, deliciously played walk-and-talker by helmer-writer-star Julie Delpy and co-star Adam Goldberg.
