2 Days in Paris

New review from The Movie Snob

2 Days in Paris (C). I thought French actress Julie Delpy was cute enough in those movies with Ethan Hawke, Before Sunrise and Before Sunset. Here she not only stars but writes and directs. And her parents play her character’s parents. Perhaps a little outside assistance would have been a good thing. Anyway, Delpy plays Marion, a 35-year-old photographer living in New York, and the hirsute Adam Goldberg (Zodiac) plays her boyfriend Jack. They’ve been together for two years, but this is the first time she has taken him to Paris to meet her parents and sister. For a while it’s not a bad little movie, very conversational, like her movies with Hawke. Then it turns all melodramatic, as Marion seems to have a past with every Parisian guy they run into. It’s okay, nothing special.
