ReelTalk Movie Reviews
It's All Relative
by Betty Jo Tucker

Chris Rock co-stars with writer/director Julie Delpy in 2 Days in New York, a talky comedy about a couple trying to hold things together during a short visit by relatives from Paris. Rock plays Mingus, a radio host, and Delpy is Marion, whose elderly father, sexy sister and unexpected friend drive her frantic during their time in New York. I think Chris Rock is very funny, and Julie Delpy’s many talents are admirable indeed -- but sorry to say, this is not one of my favorite films. The poem below explains why.

 

Coping with guests

is hard to do

when they are kin,

a motley crew.

 

From Paris to

New York they come.

Dad, sis and friend

for lots of fun.  

 

They shake things up

and make a mess

for Marion

and poor Mingus.

 

It’s culture shock

for 2 wild days.

But laughs are scarce

and guess who pays?

 

Viewers, of course,

and that’s not fair.

So you’ve been warned.

Go if you dare.

 

(Released by Magnolia Pictures and rated “R” for language, sexual content, drug use and brief nudity.)
