Marion’s (Julie Delpy) father and sister (Albert Delpy, Alexia Landeau) arrive in New York City together with an uninvited guest to see her, the kids and a new boyfriend (Chris Rock). The sequel to 2 Days in Paris (2007) offers the same mix of boisterous family life and Delpy’s personal thoughts, this time as a woman who’s lived a little more and now has children. New York plays less of a part here than Paris did in the original, and the chaos surrounding Delpy’s dad and sister may not be to everyone’s taste – but the cast is fun and it’s a credible observation on the nature of families.
