Product Description

Paul Miller (Paul Rudd, 40 YEAR OLD VIRGIN, FRIENDS) has struggled as an actor in Hollywood for years and, having decided to commit suicide, hires a film crew to document his last two days. The director giving the job of filming Paul s suicide ponders whether he can allow Paul to die without trying to prevent it. Director and writer Sean McGinly takes a wry look at both the Hollywood film system and the complexities of making an independent film in this comedy drama. Paul Rudd puts in a skilful performance as his character assesses his life and searches for meaning and hope, while the characterisation of the other main players is excellent. Often ironic and darkly humorous, 2 DAYS is an entertaining and thought provoking indie black comedy.

4.0 out of 5 stars I disagree 8 Nov 2004
By Abstract Notions - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
After reading the reviews above I decided to chime in with my two cents. Although I agree Joe Public may find this movie a bit dry and at times unrealistic I must say that this is an unfair assesment and that the film has it's audience. Currently I am working on my masters in Psychology and I must say that the depiction of an individual who is seriously considering suicide is far more accurate than most films today. Despite popular opinion, those who attempt suicide are rarely brudding goths who always see the more morbid side of things and listen to Metallica. They are generally normal people who just feel tired and lost, something that Paul Rudd brings across in spades. Although they seldom film their deaths, most suicide attempties do discuss killing themselves and are often aware of how "indulgent" it may seem to others, a point discussed in the film. Thus it is unfair to say that this movie is bad based on a half founded belief that the content is unrealistic.

3.0 out of 5 stars To die or not to die... in front of the camera of course 4 May 2011
By DelusionalAngel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The premise is simple: a fledgling actor decides he's done with life so he hires a camera crew to follow him around, documenting his final living days. After he is gone, well, there will be a record left behind. His own self produced reality show of the end. His friends mostly just assume it's a cry for attention - you know that's what people like him do, they need a spotlight on them, overdramatic, etc etc. He looks fine.

Like many actual reality shows there is a lot of unnecessary side drama which seems forced / manufactured - it even seems to take over at times, you'd think that would be mentioned in any truly negative reviews it gets. Sometimes there is a lack of real character development, maybe that'd be mentioned in truly negative reviews. Most of what I have seen in negative reviews is just vague or instead focuses on the mental illness / depression aspect. For me that is not at all an issue having actually lost a friend to suicide and having dealt with many more people who have dealt with different forms of depression / other mental illness. To think someone who "looks normal" isn't ready to end it is pure ignorance. Everyone is different. The person I know who did kill themselves did so as their life was going better than ever, when people complained the least of their depression symptoms affecting those around them. Our star here was clearly bottling something up, as seen in the rare alone with the camera moment we get to share with him.

Of course like many people with depression issues he has alienated most people by the time of his big day - those who don't believe him seem sick of his silly ways, those who do just don't want to be a part of his plan or his life / death in general.

So will he or won't he? Obviously death is his chance to end it, get famous, it's the solution... it's also final and he won't be around to enjoy it, no second chances. No spoiler here.

Is it a fantastic movie? I wouldn't go that far, but it's also better than some of the reviews I've seen that seem to make it out as the worst thing ever given to humanity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 13 May 2009
By Francis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Given how poorly it's been received by reviewers on amazon, this must be a film you either get or don't get, with no subtle in-betweens. This film really connected with me. Paul Rudd is brilliant in it. The whole scenario is a really fascinating take on suicide, and the dialogue is well written and realistic.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not so interesting Mocumentary... 30 July 2004
By Allison Fox - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I rented "2 Days" because the premise sounded intriguing enough: An actor who decides to kill himself in 2 days has a film crew follow him around up until the very end. Maybe if this had been a documentary on a real person's life it could have worked. But I found this movie to be very unreal and unsatisfying. Don't get me wrong, Paul Rudd is a good actor and quite sexy I might add, but I could barely keep myself awake to watch the movie in it's entirety. It wasn't a horrible movie, but I can understand why it went straight to video. When killing yourself in two days starts looking more appealing than continuing to watch this movie... well, I'd say it's failed as good entertainment.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm very surprised by everyone's reaction to this movie.. i thought it was great... 25 Nov 2006
By RICHARD Lis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Perhaps it's because I feel that I can relate to the guy, but I thought it was actually quite humourous. The guy seemed pretty real, cynical, and tired of living a boring lonely life. I loved it...
