Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The laughs come fast and breezy, just as Delpy intends."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"Much of the alleged humor is based on French-English language gags, or cultural differences or continental mores vs. the priggishness of Americans, but it's all more irritating than funny."
‑ John Anderson, Newsday
"There are a lot of laugh-out-loud scenes, but few hold together well enough to make for a smooth-flowing narrative equal to '2 Days in Paris.'"
‑ Al Alexander, The Patriot Ledger
"I started out thinking this is really forced and then I thought it was really self consciously cute and then I thought it was really unfunny and then I got to the point of hating it and then I wanted her to die."
‑ Margaret Pomeranz, At the Movies (Australia)
"Delpy seems fascinated by the way that time and life experience change people's perceptions and attitudes, but not their cores."
‑ Cara Nash, FILMINK (Australia)
"While it's nowhere near a perfect film, 2 Days in New York is worth seeing, not only for the comedy but also for the realism of the smaller moments."
‑ Amanda Mae Meyncke, Film.com
""2 Days in Paris" is as self-assured as it is slight, a deliberate diversion whose winsome charms never run dry."
‑ Sam Adams, Los Angeles Times
"This very funny, very smart comedy about New York intellectuals meeting a French invasion of sorts is much like a Woody Allen film, but it is written and directed by Julie Delpy."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"This is a catastrophically unfunny sequel in which the possibilities for a French-American culture clash are quickly doomed by the cruelly unfunny dialogue and some very bad performances."
‑ David Stratton, At the Movies (Australia)
"Julie Delpy's smartest move as a director is to feature Julie Delpy so prominently in her films. That endless reservoir of charm is drawn from yet again in her latest effort, an unnecessary but not unappealing sequel."
‑ Simon Miraudo, Quickflix
"[Delpy] and Rock, in the midst of free-flying French chaos, find a sweet chemistry together ..."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"A manic and funny, if ultimately frustrating, sequel."
‑ Jess Righthand, Washington Post
"Rock tries playing it straight, but can't help himself; Delpy is lovably daffy; the film has a breezy, honest air."
‑ Jim Schembri, 3AW
"Episodic and sluggishly paced, 2 Days in New York has no drive and no story tension and for some that won't matter since the film's manic energy seems to derive from the fact that everyone here talks fast and loud and often..."
‑ Peter Galvin, sbs.com.au
"Delpy is unlikely to set the world on fire with these farcical outings of the absurd, but it's a pleasure to see her back onscreen, doing what she loves."
‑ Ed Gibbs, The Sunday Age
