But when her family decides to come visit her, she's unaware that the different cultural background held by her new American boyfriend Mingus (Rock), her eccentric father, and her sister Rose who decided to bring her ex-boyfriend along for the trip, added to her upcoming photo exhibition, will make up for an explosive mix.

Chris Rock might not be as feisty (or annoying?) as the male lead in the first "2 days in .." movie, but he still has some very nice scenes in it. Not all his actions might be comprehensible by everyone, but the movie as it is, works fine. There are strands opened in the movie that won't get explored completely through, but the overall feeling is that of how a relationship can or won't work. Family from Europe does add an extra tension (even or especially if you have seen part 1).
Having said that, there is no actual need to have seen the other movie, but you will have a feeling for Julie Delpys character in this (and for her father and sister too). As I did mention in that other movies review, this talky feature too does remind you of the "Before ..." series, though it is more "evolved" than the first two installments, in a sense that the relationship is further down the road.
Some things may not feel funny for some and some won't like the fact, that they talk that much (the Obama theme felt wrong too). But it also might be your cup of tea.
