3.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes funny, sometimes annoying, August 24, 2012
This review is from: 2 Days in New York (DVD)
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.
