2 Days in New York

Comedy


 

Manhattan couple Marion and Mingus, who each have children from prior relationships, find their comfortable family dynamic jostled by a visit from Marion's relatives.

It's hard to believe all the French behave as badly as Marion's family in "2 Days in New York", but that doesn't make it any less funny. The in-laws aren't afraid to say what they think, and when placed amongst the US to ramble, the culture divide draws a lot of laughs. Cynics might find it a little pretentious and the ending might not do it any favours.Though, give it a chance and you might find there are some genuine laugh out loud moments that make the jaunt worthwhile.
