It was a very funny movie.

Sorry, just not in this nonsense... I had to spend too much time reading caption than watching the movie... but that is not the tough part - it is just boring!

Julie Delpy really has a good ear for shrewdly observational, overlapping conversations. It started with her Richard Linklater-directed bookends, 1995's Before Sunrise and 2004's Before Sunset, in which she and Ethan Hawke contributed much of their own dialogue (and earned adapted screenplay Oscar nominations for the latter). She then translated her unique gift to her own sophomore directorial effort, 2007's 2 Days in Paris, a romantic dramedy that mined her character's repressed hesitancies about settling down with a neurotic, irritating interior decorator named Jack. Delpy comes back again as the star, director, and writer (this time partnering with co-star Alexia Landeau, who plays her sister Rose) of this 2012 sequel, a culture clash comedy paced like a free-for-all French farce. Although the results are not always fortuitous, her aptitude as a filmmaker has clearly improved since Paris, this time aided by a far more likable leading man, an atypically subdued Chris Rock versus the insufferable Adam Goldberg who is blessedly absent from this film.

Delpy herself plays the same character, artist Marion Dupré, picking up her life in New York a few years after she broke up with Jack, had his baby, and moved in with Mingus, a talk-radio host. Instead of wallowing in commitment issues, Marion is now juggling a busy life raising her towheaded toddler Lulu as well as Mingus' young daughter Willow, and at the same time, getting ready for an exhibit of her photographs at a gallery.

We need more movies where the female character is more complex and interesting like this movie. I love 2 Days in Paris and again 2 Days in New York. Chris Rock's character is also funny and not one sided. Chris Rock needs to find more of this type of character for his acting career. Kudos to Julie Delpy for writing, producing, directing and starring. Please Julie, give us more movies like this.

When we rented this movie, we thought it'd be a charming
story of an American-French family. Something that would
show how both cultures could appreciate each other, etc.
Our expectations were totally off.

The French family members were crude, raunchy, dumb,
wreckless, over-the-top, insane, bickering, emotionally-unstable,
horny, drug users.

While it was cool to see Chris Rock in a different role,
I disliked watching all the PDA between him and his co-star.
He is great comedian but he's --not-- attractive.

There was little of value to be gained from watching
this movie.

My family lost interest in this movie midway.
We've never considered ending a movie before it
was finished--- that's how bad it was.

Chris in this nonsense... Well I know he's a comedian... but where was the comedy? I bought this because I love Chris Rock in ANYTHING! Sorry, just not in this nonsense... I had to spend too much time reading caption than watching the movie... but that is not the tough part - it is just boring! So I did not see it to the end...

Director/writer/actor Julie Delpy's sequel to "2 Days in Paris" follows the same formula but moves the setting to America. After Marion's (Delpy) previous relationship led her to New York, she had a son (Lulu - really?), divorced and has partnered with Mingus (Chris Rock) who comes with his own daughter. Marion's dad (real dad Albert Delpy) comes for a visit along with her sister Rose (Alexia Landeau) who is unexpectedly accompanied by Manu (Alex Nahon) who was a one time lover of Marion's.

Mingus (rhymes with cunnilingus - an ongoing joke) and Marion's apartment is barely big enough for them and the 2 kids. Still they put up the 3 Parisians. Dad speaks no English but the other two can get by. The translation issue comes up primarily with Dad and Mingus and is sometimes funny, sometimes just annoying. At times I was yelling at the screen, just get someone to translate! Well then there would be less of a movie. Delpy is a wonderful writer as she has shown in previous work including "Before Sunset" but this movie seems very familiar. I certainly identified with Mingus and never would have made it as far as he did. Still, some of the situations are pretty funny and stereotypically French.

It isn't required viewing to see Julie Delpy's 2007 film "2 Days in Paris" before diving into 2012's "2 Days in New York" to fully grasp or understand what occurs in the romantic comedy sequel, but it would more than likely help you appreciate "2 Days in New York" a bit more. However, "2 Days in New York" doesn't leave you with this overwhelming sensation to view or revisit its predecessor either. The film leaves you feeling like secluding yourself from your family and any sort of responsibility would be the absolute best thing for you when things get really hectic.

This movie makes it seem like living in New York leaves you with no time to do anything ever. Maybe all of this was supposed to be funny; family members who don't know English getting away with things no normal person can just because they're from another country and being too busy to be intimate with the one you love despite talking about it all the time. It just felt sad and kind of pathetic. There's a huge emphasis on language barriers, ignorant racial jokes that are pretty preposterous, and how a simple thing like buying drugs in front of a child can really impact them. Most of the humor seems like it's stripped away for a last ditch effort just to stay on top of an already sinking ship. It's emotionally exhausting more than anything.

Chris Rock is surprisingly the best part here. He really breaks away from whatever comedy he has associated himself with in the past and brings logic and reason to an already well developed character. The highlight of the movie is his scenes where he has full-blown conversations with a cardboard cut-out of Barack Obama. The whole brain tumor thing and what it leads to is amusing as well as is when Marion takes Rose to her yoga class.
