In life, a first kiss is the beginning of a relationship. In romantic comedies, it's almost always the end of the story. At this point we all just accept that because we've seen it played out onscreen hundreds of times, but isn't it weird? Shouldn't there be more to onscreen romances than that?
If your answer to that question is "yes," then you'll probably enjoy '2 Days in New York,' a romantic comedy about a couple that's way past first kisses. True, the film's jokes are occasionally unfunny and its tone is frequently shrill. But you know what? Life is occasionally unfunny and frequently shrill. This movie understands that.
