Reviews for 2 Days in New York
Ah, those smelly French. Julie Delpy's manic and sort of unsatisfying "2 Days in New York," which reads like a caffeinated version of a Woody Allen comedy, manages to throw in just about every stereotype about visitors from France:
2 Days in New York is a sequel to, and an improvement upon, 2007's 2 Days in Paris. Written, directed, and starring Julie Delpy, the movies follow the misadventures of a 30-something Parisian transplanted to New York City.

Delpy follows her wonderful 2007 comedy 2 Days in Paris with a sequel that perhaps isn't quite as consistent as the original. But it's both funnier and more romantic, as each character in the story catches our imaginations and our hearts.
MANHATTAN is one of the most exciting places in the world to visit.Two days just would not be enough to get your head round it.So if you were hoping that this film would help to show you the hotspots, you could be Disappointed.
The best reason to see it is Rock who gives a nice, subdued performance, cast against type as the straight-man to these French loons.
