2 Days In New York Review


Excellent
Delpy follows her wonderful 2007 comedy 2 Days in Paris with a sequel that perhaps isn't quite as consistent as the original. But it's both funnier and more romantic, as each character in the story catches our imaginations and our hearts.

Marion (Delpy) and her boyfriend Mingus (Rock) each have young children (Shipman and Riley) from previous relationships, and their blended family is doing just fine until Marion's dad (Julie's real dad Albert) arrives from France with her sister Rose (Landeau) and Rose's loutish boyfriend Manu (Nahon), who of course is one of Marion's exes.

Love in Thoughts Review


Excellent
I wasn't expecting much from this movie. It's called -- appallingly -- Love in Thoughts (or at least that's how it's loosely translated from German), and the cover shows two young men with their shirts unbuttoned, standing in a field of golden grain.

Well, you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover and you shouldn't judge a DVD by one, either.
