WHAT'S IT ABOUT?
Two couples (Hart, Hall, Ealy, Joy Brant) meet and develop very different relationships with their own sets of roadblocks.
IS IT A GOOD MOVIE?
“I made her feel like good and evil hung in the balance, like we were at peace talks and her orgasms were the end of genocide.” Sex is at the center of Bernie’s (Kevin Hart, GRUDGE MATCH) mind and all his best friend, Danny (Michael Ealy, UNDERWORLD: AWAKENING) can do, is listen—that is, until Kevin’s bedmate Joan (Regina Hall, THINK LIKE A MAN) hooks him up with her friend, Debbie (Joy Brant, NBC’s PARENTHOOD). The two hit it off and are soon enough exchanging apartment keys.

ABOUT LAST NIGHT is a remake of the 1986 movie of the same name, which starred Rob Lowe, Demi Moore, James Belushi and Elizabeth Perkins. The movie is an examination of two very different relationships—one that depends on sex and one that would probably be considered more traditional.

But which is best? That’s a question that the screenplay (by Leslye Headland) raises while smartly deciding not to try to answer either way. The viewer gets to see each relationship pan out and just how complicated each can be. This is a mature approach that tests what the audience feels about the kinds of relationships they’re more familiar with.

ABOUT LAST NIGHT, which is directed by Steve Pink (HOT TUB TIME MACHINE), is an intelligent, honest and funny movie with a mindset that is much fresher than typically released on Valentine’s Day. And since the movie is populated by a talented cast—Hart is as vulgar as fans of his stand-up want him to be, Hall is wild and at times hysterical, Ealy is a solid straight man, Bryant is sympathetic with ease—ABOUT LAST NIGHT is all the more enjoyable and relatable.

THE EXTRAS
An Un-Romantic Comedy (14:38): This typical promotional piece features Kevin Hart, Regina Hall, Michael Ealy and Joy Bryant discussing their characters and the project as a whole.

ABOUT LAST NIGHT Advice (3:53): The cast members offer personal relationship advice.

I Love You? (5:39) looks at how those three (magic? dangerous?) words play a role in relationships.

Word on the Street (9:04): People on the street share their own relationship advice—some of which might make you cringe.
