  • 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) Expand

  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.

    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.

    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 Collapse

    Julie Delpy and Adam Goldberg are perfectly paired in this comedic take on a French-born photographer bringing her American boyfriend home to meet the family in a move that pushes their relationship to the limits.

    The oft exaggerated cultural differences between French and American cultures spark some unique and genuinely funny laughs. Trips to the market, an overly liberal view of sex, overly friendly Frenchman, and opinionated taxi drivers all contribute to what Goldberg called "the most un-romantic trip to Paris ever."

    Perhaps the worst part of the movie was the final message, which appeared in only the last three minutes of the movie and basically asserts that at some point in life you will decide that you no longer have the energy for another break-up and that it would be altogether easier to simply settle down and stick it out. Call me crazy, but I would have expected a more romantic ending to a French movie.

    Nevertheless, the unique humor is genuinely funny and the interactions between the four main characters (Delpy, Goldberg and Delpy's parents) are a lot of fun to watch.

    Most actors are afraid of repeating themselves in the fear of becoming a stereotype they might be unable to shake off. Deply however seems unphased, having appeared in a number of these small budget films about a snapshot in the lives of a couple, showing us the romance, the humour and the troubles in equal measures. 2 days in Paris is one of her first attempts in directing and manages to emulate the essence of the Before Sunrise/Sunset films that are so dear to my heart.
