Critics Consensus

A labyrinthine thriller with a host of memorable characters, 2 Days in the Valley is an uneven but intriguing thriller/black comedy.

Movie Info

Dosmo Pizzo (Danny Aiello), an ordinary guy, finds himself involved in a murder-for-hire scheme. He is betrayed by his partner, the strangely serene Lee Woods (James Spader), who leaves him for dead. Suspecting that Woods will come back to finish him, Dosmo takes an obnoxious art dealer (Greg Cruttwell) and his sweet-natured assistant (Glenne Headly) hostage. Meanwhile, a rookie policeman (Eric Stoltz) investigating the murder begins to suspect that some kind of conspiracy is behind it.

Audience Reviews for 2 Days in the Valley

    This multiple-stories-intersecting-at-the-end cornucopia was actually a strikingly fresh approach at the time of its release in 1996 and represents one of the true successes of that oft-imitated form. Also achieves the rare feat of maintaining interest & involvement in the lives and deeds of a collection of criminals & crooked lowlifes. Charlize Theron has never looked better either - rawr!

    AA great movie. Somehow I have run into a string of movies lately where the lives of about 6 people all intertwine with each other during the movie. This one is the best of all. Danny Aiello plays an excellent part, along with Paul Mazursky. What we have is a divorced couple, and the wife pays to have her husband killed, which sets of a sequence of events that not only are comical but also suspenseful at times. The Sound Track helps make this a 5 star movie. get it anyway you can, its excellent. 5 STARS
