Wiki

Julie Delpy, having spent the entirety of Richard Linklater'sBefore SunriseandBefore Sunsetwalking around European cities and talking, decides to take hold of the reins herself inTwo Days in Paris. For this somewhat similar gabfest, Delpy writes, directs, and casts herself as one half of a neurotically fun couple, who stop over to visit her parents for a couple of days in (duh) Paris. Adam Goldberg brings his shaggy worrywart persona as Delpy's better half--and why shouldn't he worry? Her parents seem happy to play pranks on him, and Delpy's ex-boyfriends materialize in every arrondissement. Despite their differences in style, these two have enjoyable chemistry together, and Goldberg is gifted with razor-sharp timing. Good to see Delpy, who has often been tapped for ethereal types, playing a feistier character than usual. It doesn't hurt anything at all that they are walking and talking through Paris, a city with an inexhaustible number of attractive angles. At some point you may begin to realize that the movie doesn't seem to be about very much, and without Linklater's ingenious fixed-time structure, there's little urgency to the ongoing conversation. If you haven't seen the Linklater films, absolutely check those out first, and consider this a photogenic side dish. --Robert Horton

posted in Movie Hype
(2.5) Sometimes more unpleasant than funny, '2 Days in Paris' brings out the differences between a New York couple who visit her native Paris. As the trip reveals serial lovers in her past, his resentment grows, especially as he takes her scenes with others out of context. Not entirely different than 'Conversations with Other Women' with two different points of view (although not presented with a split screen), this film reminded me of a substandard 'Annie Hall'. Adam Goldberg is no Woody Allen, …
