Julie Delpy writes, directs and stars in this sequel to her 2 Days in Paris, which finds Marion living in New York City with her new boyfriend, Mingus (Chris Rock). Things go crazy when Marion’s wacky family comes to visit from France. The visitors turn the couple’s lives upside down and test their loving bond. Rock has never been better in a movie, and he’s the best thing here. Delpy is charming, and her approach to filmmaking is enjoyably quirky. The movie amounts to something on the level of mediocre Woody Allen: It’s nothing to get too worked up about, but it has its moments, including a very strange cameo from a rather unpopular film star. The Delpy/Rock stuff gets high marks, but the crazy-family parts pull the film down a bit.
