MPAA Rated R for language, sexual content, some drug use and brief nudity

Sex & Nudity

  • Several graphic discussions about sex, and a few scenes feature a couple who appear to be fooling around under the covers. One woman walks around half-dressed, with brief glimpses of her breast and butt. A married couple flirts and talks about why they can't have sex with an apartment full of guests. A running joke pairs Mingus' name with a term for oral sex.

Violence & Gore

  • Some intense bickering and one minor scrap as a woman tries to grab a document from a man and they end up wrestling on the floor.


  • Plenty of swearing, including "f--k", "s--t", "bulls--t", "motherf----r", "d--k", "ass", "bitch", and more.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Several scenes show people drinking at dinner and at parties -- and sometimes smoking cigarettes as well. Some characters smoke pot in a few scenes, and a man completes a drug deal in front of a young girl. She later emulates what she witnessed by trying to sell real grass, picked in the park, to a classmate.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Parents need to know that 2 Days in New York is the follow-up to 2 Days in Paris, both directed by and starring Julie Delpy. It follows the same basic formula as the original, focusing on a couple forced to address issues in their relationship while surrounded by her very French (and very outrageous) family. There are some scenes with bickering and fairly graphic sexual banter (including a running joke that references oral sex), adult characters drink and smoke pot, and there's plenty of swearing ("f--k", "s--t", etc.). The real drama comes from watching Delpy's character and her live-in boyfriend, played by Chris Rock, navigate the rocky shoals of a real relationship, which may not be especially relatable to young people who've had few of their own.
  • Okay for kids 16+
