The laughs come fast and breezy, just as Delpy intends.
Tom Long, Detroit News  full review
 
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.
 
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  full review
 
"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  full review
 
A manic and funny, if ultimately frustrating, sequel.
Jess Righthand, Washington Post  full review
 
It's extremely funny, one of the funniest films of 2012, with a particularly winning style - far-fetched, extreme and nonstop.
Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle  full review
 
Chatty, neurotic, maddeningly messy, often very funny, "New York" spins in a lunatic orbit of its own.
Ty Burr, Boston Globe  full review
 
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.
Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer  full review
 
The comedy works some of the time; the pathos, more so.
Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune  full review
 
Julie Delpy has particularly impressed me over the years.
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times  full review
 
It's time for Delpy to leave Marion in New York for good and head back to Paris. Besides, the sausage is better there.
Linda Barnard, Toronto Star  full review
 
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.
Farran Smith Nehme, New York Post  full review
 
About six hours of those "2 Days in New York" don't work at all. And, coming as they do at the end, they tend to deflate the charm of the trip.
Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger  full review
 
2 Days in New York plays like 2 years in Attica.
Rick Groen, Globe and Mail  full review
 
The film, which is about a chaotic 48 hours in Marion's life, succumbs to the chaos it depicts, and so undermines its best intentions. It is, all in all, a likable mess.
A.O. Scott, New York Times  full review
 
The screenplay - which was written by Delpy, Landeau and Nahon - has a jittery kind of honesty about it, which Rock and Delpy sometimes push to its limits.
 
Julie Delpy is boundlessly appealing. And Chris Rock is acerbic fun. But the frenzied cross-cultural gags take the piss out of the real subject: how blood ties can turn love into a battlefield.
Peter Travers, Rolling Stone  full review
