Writers DeClue and Kazurinsky have created a recognizable geography for every age; you suspect that About Last Night will set off pangs of identification everywhere.

Empire Magazine

Engaging performances from the two leads are complemented by a witty script with some great one-liners, and five-star support from James Belushi.

Lowe and Moore do well as the on-again, off-again partners, although it is James Belushi, in an over-the-top supporting performance his brother John would have been proud of, who all but walks off with the show.

This is the yuppie drama that St. Elmo`s Fire wanted to be but wasn't.

Great adaptation of Mamet's play...if they ever make my life story, Jim Belushi is playing me!

A rare, if dated, treat -- an intelligent film that's grown-up enough to deal with sex, sexism and friendship, with wit and honesty.

Simultaneously obnoxious and insightful; a great cast keeps things afloat.

Spirituality and Practice

A comedy about singletons, sexual politics, and the emptiness of relationships based only on physical attraction.

It has an eye and an ear for the way we live now, and it has a heart, too, and a sense of humor.

A marriage between the creative talents of David Mamet and Edward Zwick might seem to be an unlikely union but, in the case of 1986 feature About Last Night..., it is surprisingly effective.

Homework assignment: Is the decision to change both the title and the thrust of Mamet's play evidence of perversity or of perversion? Due tomorrow. Class dismissed.
