Julie Delpy's '2 Days' has its moments

A lot is packed into 2 Days in Paris: romance, modern art, dirty laundry, bouts of hypochondria, public fights, humiliation, The Da Vinci Code, and even a chance meeting with a fairy in a fast-food joint.

Julie Delpy is probably the most ambitious actress working today. She wrote, directed, edited, co-starred, produced and even scored 2 Days in Paris, her first such effort. Some of it is funny and insightful; some makes you cringe. But it's still entertaining. The conceit is ripe with comic possibilities: Marion (Delpy) and her boyfriend, Jack, a New Yorker played by Adam Goldberg, take a trip to Europe and spend two days in Paris visiting family and friends.
