  • Summary: 2 Days in Paris follows a New York couple, French photographer Marion and American interior designer Jack, as they attempt to re-infuse their relationship with romance on a European vacation. Their week in Venice didn't work out as planned--the food didn't agree with Jack and when he was well enough to go out, he was so focused on capturing the trip with his digital camera that he forgot to experience it. They have higher hopes for their last 2 days in Paris. But the combination of Marion's offbeat and overbearing non-English speaking parents and flirtatious ex-boyfriend, with Jack's continuing photography obsession an conviction that French condoms are too small, don't make for an auspicious beginning....(Samuel Goldwyn) Collapse

  1. Audacious as it is, the movie is also a little scary.
  2. Perhaps the most promising thing in 2 Days in Paris is that Delpy shows that she can direct herself.
  3. 75
    A smart film with an edge to it.
  4. Reviewed by: Richard Schickel
    This anti romantic and anti-comic -- it's not as funny as Delpy seems to think it is -- movie may appeal to the dark side of your immune system.
  5. Provides a smart and funny respite from most of what passes for romantic comedy these days.
  6. By accident or design the film is seriously unbalanced.
  7. 40
    Anyone hoping that 2 Days in Paris will revisit such peppy romance (“Annie Hall”), however, will be frustrated. There is an extra rawness here, a determination to confront and annoy.

    Loved every minute. Laugh-out-loud funny in many spots, well written, well acted, with a lot of truth to it. Bravo to Julie Delpy for a job well done on all counts! I never cared for Adam Goldberg before but I loved him in this. Expand

    A fresh view of men's fear, and of an entire culture's fear.

    Quirky, real and funny. Although it sometimes verges on being a little too out there the main story feels like a truthful representation of the highs and lows of two unique people in a relationship, whilst being completely hilarious. Julie Delpy and Adam Goldberg clearly have chemistry (they were together in real life before the film), taking the film from good to great, It'll be interesting to see how 2 days in New York turns out without Goldberg and Paris as a character of its own Expand

    I can't believe the poor review it got from Anthony Lane in the New Yorker.. Can't he at least appreciate it for its playfulness and fresh take on Paris romance? I enjoyed it greatly for what it is.. a romantic comedy with bite.. Delpy is a modern Annie Hall and some of the scenes were very funny if not laugh out loud.. They make a great realistic pair.. this film had people I could relate to. Maybe it's because I'm a neurotic 30 something who is crap at relationships.. And calling it a vanity project is just plain stupid.. So what if her parents are in it- they are great. And so what if she sings over the final credits- it's cute. So if someone is just the actor and director it's not a vanity project but wo be them that do more..Pah! Show me a recent romantic comedy that's better. Expand

    I would've given this movie 2 points, but I decided I liked some of Golberg's lines. Delpy is at best a mediocre actress, and her voice-over throughout the movie was annoying reminder of her lack of voicing emotion and of her whiney, "mrs know-it-all" voice. The movie itself was so full of dated, one dimensional cliches of the French and Americans, I felt it could've been written by one of the racist taxi drivers in the movie. Expand

    A complete vanity project. Poorly written, acted and filmed. I felt like I was watching a film on a bi-polar personality. The bit at the beginning when Adam Goldberg plays the trick on the Bush/Cheney supporters was funny. Expand
