Kevin Wight’s review:
Excellent sequel from the lovely Julie Delpy. A few years on from 2 Days in Paris, and Delpy's Marion now lives in New York with her partner Mingus (a more likeable than usual Chris Rock) and her eccentric family come to stay.
It threatens at times to veer into self-indulgence, but Delpy's charisma and sheer appeal keep the rudder steady. Rock injects plenty of common sense and is a more effective counterpoint to Delpy than Adam Goldberg's whiney Woody Allen-lite cipher in the first film.
It also has added poignancy, Delpy using the film to work out her feelings about the death of her mother in a charming way, free from the histrionics that result from such an approach. Excellent stuff, if perhaps not quite as good as Before Sunrise/ Sunset.
