2 Days in New York - Movie Review

2 Days in New York (R) 96 Minutes B
Neurotic in New York

Starring Julie Delpy, Chris Rock, Albert Delpy, Alexia Landeau, Alex Nahon, Dylan Baker, Kate Burton, Daniel Bruhl and Emily Wagner.
2 Days in New York is the follow-up to 2007's 2 Days in Paris, in which Julie Delpy starred opposite Adam Goldberg.  In the latest installment, Jack (Goldberg) is gone and Mingus (Chris Rock) is the new beau. 

The film has been called Woody Allen-esque, and that it is.  But, even more appealing is Delpy's off-beat charm and neurotic beauty.  Her lunacy works surprisingly well with Rock's perfectly tempered performance.  This film is not easy to digest, but it's a good time in an odd sorta way.
