Movie Critics
…Just how bad is endless love? Let us count the ways… Even a sucker for a good sappy tale won’t find much to love in the hollow story of a ridiculous couple in a frowned-upon love affair. …
Christa Banister, Crosswalk
…broader, cruder and raunchier than the original…
Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter
…the film assumes a sleep-with-anybody-and-everybody attitude is the norm… It presents a one-dimensional romcom tale in a crude, crass, offensive and completely forgettable way. There’s no mystery about why its characters are having relationship problems—because there’s no mystery about last night.
Bob Hoose, Plugged In
…combines frank sex talk, profane gender skirmishes, to-die-for property refurbishment and a reassuring faith in the power of love to kick the ass of anything in its way, Steve Pink’s movie is selling fantasy dressed in wish-fulfillment makeover real estate TV drag. …
Geoff Pevere, The Globe and Mail
…Full of racy dialogue, several sex scenes and a relatable story, “About Last Night” is an affair that amounts to more than just a one-night stand.
Kevin C. Johnson, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
…the movie’s no different than the thousands of romantic comedies… It’s glossy, the cast is attractive, and Kevin Hart is bumptiously funny as heroMichael Ealy’s oversexed best friend. You could take your honey for Valentine’s Day. But, really, a dozen fake roses and a card from CVS would be more personal. …
Ty Burr, The Boston Globe
…You always know, in essence, where it’s going, and I wish that Ealy and Bryant seemed less like a truly nice couple and more like movie stars. By the end, however, the movie has captured something undeniably genuine about contemporary relationships: all the ways that they can, and will, get in their own way.
