Cast & Crew
The laughs come fast and breezy, just as Delpy intends.
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.
"2 Days in Paris" is as self-assured as it is slight, a deliberate diversion whose winsome charms never run dry.
It's extremely funny, one of the funniest films of 2012, with a particularly winning style - far-fetched, extreme and nonstop.
Chatty, neurotic, maddeningly messy, often very funny, "New York" spins in a lunatic orbit of its own.
Finds its comedy in the familiar annoyances of urban life (a contentious neighbor, random acts of vandalism), in the conflict between parents and siblings, but also in bigger, kookier, existential quandaries.
The comedy works some of the time; the pathos, more so.
