2 Days in New York

Marion (Julie Delpy) and Mingus (Chris Rock) live cozily—perhaps too cozily—with their cat and two young children from previous relationships. However, when Marion’s jolly father (played by Delpy’s real-life dad), her oversexed sister, and her sister’s outrageous boyfriend unceremoniously descend upon them for a visit, it initiates two unforgettable days that will test Marion and Mingus’s relationship. With their unwitting racism and sexual frankness, the French triumvirate hilariously has no boundaries or filters… and no person is left unscathed in its wake.

Directed and cowritten by Delpy, 2 Days in New York is a deliciously witty romp. One of the pleasures of this follow-up film to 2 Days in Paris is the addition of Chris Rock, who—amid the Gallic mayhem—convincingly plays the straight man as Marion’s hipster American boyfriend. With great skill and energy, Delpy heightens cultural differences to comedic extremes but also manages to show that sometimes change is the best solution to a relationship that’s been pushed to its limit. –Sundance Film Festival



Going to see this on Friday. Has anyone here seen it yet? I've heard good things about Vincent Gallo playing Vincent Gallo in this.  I really hope this lives up to its predecessor which was really simple and sweet and fun.
