    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Delpy is boundlessly appealing. And Rock is acerbic fun, notably in the imaginary debates he stages with Obama. But the frenzied cross-cultural gags take the piss out of the real subject: how blood ties can turn love into a battlefield. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    It's extremely funny, one of the funniest films of 2012, with a particularly winning style - far-fetched, extreme and nonstop. show more

    Ridiculously funny, ridiculously charming. show more

    Todd McCarthy The Hollywood Reporter

    French farce is alive and reasonably well in 2 Days in New York, a madcap inter-family romp that deftly keeps many comic balls in the air for a good hour, before dropping some in the final stretch. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    What impresses me more is that she (Delpy) has a lighthearted way about her and takes chances in comedies like this. It is hard enough to be good at all, but to be good in comedy speaks for your character. show more

    It keeps the entrances, exits, and misunderstandings rolling while rooting the action in emotions and character traits that are only slightly exaggerated for comic effect. show more

    Michael Phillips Chicago Tribune

    The comedy works some of the time; the pathos, more so. There's an undertow of grief in 2 Days in New York relating to the passing of Marion's (and Delpy's) mother, who died in 2009. show more

    New York Post

    Delpy's good at keeping Marion's complaints sharp and funny, rather than wan and whiny. Even so, the movie's a bumpy ride as her good farcical instincts vie with the yen for cheap laughs. show more

    Ty Burr Boston Globe

    Chatty, neurotic, maddeningly messy, often very funny, "New York" spins in a lunatic orbit of its own. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    2 Days in New York splits its time between being a quirky comedy and a quasi-serious drama. Comparisons with Woody Allen may be inevitable, in part because of the setting, although none of the characters in this film are neurotic enough to match vintage Allen. show more

    This movie for me was painfully bad. The characters lacked any spark of chemistry between them. The scenes of intiimacy were laughable, and not in a good way. If the theatre wasn\'t so far from my home, I would have left my party and walked home. Only after the movie did I realize they would have gladly walked out with me. So much for \"please, no talking during the movie\".

    Acyually I found this movie to be tasteless. Had I not paid to see it I would have gotten up and left. Chris Ropck was the only redeeming character.

    Not one true moment, not one real character (except the kids...maybe). Poor Chris Rock--floundering to find something other than Quizzical & Befuddled. Delpy seemed to be imitating Diane Keaton for a madcap Woody Allen knock off. Oy.

    Have I ever seen a worse movie? Not sure because thankfully I forget the bad ones. But this is so bad you know you should leave about 20 minutes in, then wish you had for the rest of hour and a half of garbage. Terrible scrip, bad story, bad direction, packed with characters (pigs) you\'ll hate for hours afterward. You keep thinking with Chris Rock it has to get funny at some point. But in the end its just misery to have wasted money on it.
