An irritating 2 Days

I was hesitant to watch '2 Days in New York' because of Chris Rock (whose "comedy" I'd rather avoid). But his character "Mingus" turned out to be less annoying than Julie Delpy's "Marion" (Rock's onscreen love interest) and Marion's "eccentric" family (the movie's plot revolves around her family's visit all the way from France -- naturally, their presence leads to all kinds of wacky hijinx!). Not that Mingus won me over or anything (he'd have required a personality to do that). In fact, I found it hard to care much about ANYBODY in this film.

Apparently, '2 Days in New York' is the sequel to something called '2 Days in Paris', which might be a wonderful movie; however, considering the characters are the same characters featured in this film, I'm not in any huge rush to go seek it out. (Though, if I do, I should remember to have Ibuprofen on hand; I'm bound to wind up with a headache if Marion and her family act anything in 'Paris' like they do in 'New York'.)

Despite all of the aforementioned gripes, 'New York' isn't the worst movie I've ever seen; it more-or-less passes the time (at least I didn't have to shut it off!). I even enjoyed Dylan Baker's brief appearance; and I was somewhat amused by the rather random cameo by Vincent Gallo.

Plus, of course, it's always nice to see the Big Apple on the big screen (or, in this case, on the Netflix screen). (4/10)
