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.Read more ›
Julie Delpy's character Marion is a French artist living in NYC with her boyfriend and their two kids from other relationships. Her family comes to visit and all hell breaks loose. It resonates because bringing your family into your life as an adult can be jarring- the things that used to amuse can grate, relationships are tested, you often find yourself questioning your own choices- but you learn a lot about yourself in the process.
The soundtrack is lovely, filled with original music that sticks in your head long after the movie is over. And Chris Rock is amazing as the boyfriend- he does a bit of improv that is tender and sweet and just fantastic. Well worth a watch!
And that got me going. Its been a while since I've seen SUCH a fun movie... So many things! Right off the bat, the funny things, coming fast and furious..."squeezing, squeezing, squeezing"... And Cris Rock! What a perfect addition (conversations with Obama). And the fight for her soul with Vincent Gallo, and Chris didn't believe it??? LOL!!!!!!!! The kids in costumes with blood! "Want some grass to take back to Italy?" HA HA HA...The elevator scenes... <gulp>...the scenes when she fights with her sister!....my 5, 1/2 French sisters, they'll love it, I'll have to have them see it.
The supporting cast was totally amazing too, all of them FUNNY AND GOOD...my favorite was her dad, particularly the scene when he was tickling Chris Rock with the feather that had been on his head. Just a serious all around RIOT. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Watch the movie and decide if you could survive two days with Marion's family. Better yet could someone survive two days with your family?

Frankly I thought it was trying too much to be funny, and it ended up being rather boring, with some smiling moments which is why I give it 2 stars rather than 1!Published 2 months ago by G. Dadush
