Witty romance explores realistic relationship; graphic talk.

what parents need to know

Parents need to know that 2 Days in Paris is a mature romantic dramedy that shows a realistic portrayal of love, including all of the ups and the downs. There's plenty of swearing ("f--k," "s--t," etc.) in both English and French, and many detailed sexual references using a variety of slang terms. People drink and smoke cigarettes at parties and at meals, and there are several intense arguments.

  • Families can talk about Jack and Marion's relationship. Does it seem realistic? Do you think they really love each other?
  • Talk to your teens about how Marion's sexual past is handled in the movie. What point is the movie making about it.

Top Critic Reviews

Fresh: A movie that is as acutely painful as it is acutely funny.

- Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer, Saturday, September 22, 2007

Fresh:

- Christopher Orr, The New Republic, Saturday, October 18, 2008

Fresh: 2 Days in Paris may seem familiar, with its manic, walking-and-talking rhythms reminiscent of Woody Allen and Diane Keaton in the 1970s. But you never know where it's going, which is one of the film's greatest pleasures.

- Christy Lemire, Associated Press, Friday, August 24, 2007

Audience Reviews

4 stars

Paris, ah Paris. Relationship humor, awkward social situation humor, culture clash humor, and dirty french humor. Fun for the whole family.

A delightful, very funny look into an eccentric couple's relationship, proving that Delpy can be as good a filmmaker as she is an actress. My only complaint regards her unnecessary narration at the end, instead of the actual dialogue.

Smart movie about relationships vs. cultural differences. At first you hate the characters, but by the end you kinda feel like you are them.
