2 Days in Paris

2daysinparisFrench actress/writer/director Julie Delpy ("Before Sunset") fails miserably with this Paris-set romantic farce where American girly-man Jack (Adam Goldberg) learns to loathe his slutty bipolar girlfriend Marion (Delpy). Jack’s bundle of high-maintenance needs don’t begin to compare with Marion’s anger issues and proclivity for engaging former lovers that they bump into on the streets of Paris. It takes Jack a while to fully realize the depth of Marion’s lacking judgement of character that she seems to gauge with genitalia, and even after it hits him what a piece of work she is, he still comes back for more abuse. There’s nothing romantic or funny about characters this shallow, dysfunctional and unlikable.

Rated R, 96 mins. (D) One Star
