I loved writer/director/star Julie Delpy's last film, 2 Days in Paris, so much that I've been eagerly awaiting the sequel — even though it doesn't feature her original costar, Adam Goldberg. This time, her character, Marion, has a new boyfriend, Mingus, played by Chris Rock. It's a few years after the events of 2 Days in Paris, and Marion and Mingus live together in New York with their respective children from previous relationships. This time, Marion's family is spending two days visiting from Paris, and their trip brings lots of hijinks and disruption in the form of smuggled food, keying cars, and unwelcome exes.
Rock has me cracking up in the preview, and I really like Delpy's insight into relationships. I'm eager to see how Marion and Mingus tackle this romantic hurdle — and I hope that this relationship fares better than her last one. 2 Days in New York comes out Aug. 10, but you can watch the trailer after the jump.
