  • Writer/director Julie Delpy follows-up her 2007 comedy 2 DAYS IN PARIS with this tale of a happy couple who find their comfortable relationship put to the test during a tumultuous family visit. Marion (Delpy) and Mingus (Chris Rock) both come from failed relationships. But by bringing their children together, they've managed to form a small yet happy family. Tensions in their household soon begin to spike, however, when Marion's jovial father (Albert Delpy -- the director's real-life father) shows up on their doorstep with his randy daughter and her peculiar boyfriend in tow. Later, as the motor-mouthed houseguests shatter every taboo imaginable, the happy couple begin to question their commitment.

  • Critic Reviews
    "French farce is alive and reasonably well in 2 DAYS IN NEW YORK, a madcap inter-family romp that deftly keeps many comic balls in the air..."
    Hollywood Reporter

    "Rock's Mingus is a study in confident underplaying."
    Sight and Sound

    3 stars out of 5 -- "[A]n anything goes take on modern relationships..."
    Total Film

    "The first hour is deft and breezy, with some good jokes at the expense of the linguistic misunderstandings."

    3 stars out of 5 -- "The film functions best as a grand French farce in the classic tradition of Ozon and Oury; Delpy may be more interested in warm smiles than she is deep laughs, but she again exhibits a rare command of comedy..."
    Box Office

    "[A] bawdy comic bash in which French writer-director-actress Julie Delpy shows how closeness can leave bruises."
    Rolling Stone

    "[A] bouncy, hand-knitted comedy of cross-cultural relationships..." -- Grade: B+
    Entertainment Weekly

    3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[Delpy] stars, directs and is the co-writer, setting the film's goofy tone. Here's a wonderful actress who has worked with Kieslowski, Jarmusch, Tavernier, Godard and Agnieszka Holland, and you'd think her only influence was Woody Allen..."
    Chicago Sun-Times
