An ensemble cast excels in Delpy's comedy that finds her French relatives in Manhattan. This sequel to her spiky 2 Days in Paris is very funny indeed, writes Mike McCahill.
With 2007’s 2 Days in Paris, writer-director-star Julie Delpy offered one of the spikiest romantic comedies of recent times. Its thirtysomething lovers weren’t the shiny happy people of romcom lore, but individuals bashed around by life: it gave them character, with which they sought to offset some heavy emotional baggage. This sequel develops the theme, with photographer heroine Marion (Delpy herself) and new beau Mingus (Chris Rock) trying to staunch the chaos that ensues when the former’s unapologetically French relatives arrive en masse at the couple’s tiny Manhattan apartment. Consider it Meet the Parents with bite.
Delpy’s real-life papa Albert remains these films’ comic ace in the hole, whether making a mini-catastrophe of a plate of cheesecake, or repeatedly flubbing his pronunciation of the phrase “very funny”. Yet the whole ensemble excels: there’s a sexy-funny turn from Alexia Landeau as Marion’s slatternly sis, while erstwhile screen motormouth Rock is triumphantly repositioned as the film’s Zen-like voice of reason. Arriving complete with 2012’s choicest indie celebrity cameo, it’s very funny, indeed.

Julie Delpy wrote, directed and stars in this romantic comedy, a sequel to her 2007 film '2 Days in Paris'. A few years have passed since the events of the last film and Marion (Delpy) has split with Jack. However, they share custody of their toddler son and Marion is now living in New York City with Mingus (Chris Rock), a hip talk-radio show host with a young daughter of his own. The couple's domestic bliss is disrupted by the arrival of Marion's eccentric father, Jeannot (Albert Delpy), and tough cookie sister Rose, along with an unexpected addition to the party, Rose's sometime-boyfriend (and Marion's ex), Manu, who have all come to town for Marion's debut photography exhibition opening, where she is planning to sell her soul to the highest bidder as a conceptual art piece.
With their unabashed openness and sexual frankness, the visitors put the couple's relationship to the test. How will they fare when the French hit New York?
