Mrs. Hoffs should not make jokes about film making.

A perfectly dreadful film whose chief selling point is that it's the first starring role for Bangles lead singer Susanna Hoffs and that the director is none other than Mom, Tamar Simon Hoffs.

Hard to say what this is really, except maybe an inadvertent documentary on child abuse.

I had a HUGE crush on Susanna Hoffs when this came out, and I still ended up hating the movie.

Tacky 80's cheese directed by the leading lady's own mother.

Audience Reviews for The Allnighter

A predictable story, boring characters, and it's not all that exciting or funny either. I didn't care for this movie, and I do not recommend it.

Susanna Hoffs, lead singer of the 80's band The Bangles, plays the lead role in this tacky comedy about the last party before college graduation. The characters are one-dimensional, the story is boring, and the comedy is low-key. The plot is almost nonexistent. Hoffs is a wonderful singer with good range; she's a terrible actress with no range. She surely looks good though :)

"The Allnighter" really is a great film from 1987, a great look on the lives of four friends about to graduate from college and getting ready for the real world. The songs in this film are really great. Susanna Hoffs of the great 1980s pop rock band The Bangles stars in her only big film role. Susanna's mother directed the film.
