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. To stay in the loop on more movies like this, you can sign up for weekly Family Movie Night emails.
Is It Any Good?
2 Days in Paris is a romance, no question, filled with hilarious scenes, but don't expect a typical romantic comedy. The couple don't meet cute and don't quibble over trivialities. Instead, they fight over real issues, and say truly hurtful things that will ring true for those in search of an authentic cinematic depiction of relationships. Delpy has played a similar role before (notably in the acclaimed Before Sunrise and Before Sunset), but she makes Marion distinct by creating a complex character not often seen in movies like this.
Mostly what's plaguing her and Jack is jealousy, as he becomes increasingly unnerved when she encounters one ex-boyfriend after another. But the plot works on a deeper level, probing the nature of conflict between couples. Theirs may be a cross-cultural relationship, but the mistrust and misunderstandings that beset them are universal (perhaps funnier, however, and all performed with remarkable elan). The film is a revealing look at what it takes to make a relationship last, and why sometimes it's harder to stick together than it is to flee.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
