Eye for Film

Flawed, but with enough interest to suggest Jake Paltrow may be one to keep an eye out for in future.

...a low-key yet consistently engaging effort...

The Good Night is a superlative feature film from Jake Paltrow; a fulfilling buffet of aches and pains from the discontented, poured into an amusing, uneasy comedic fantasy that barely misses a step.

I.E. Weekly

Writer-director Jake Paltrow's (yes, brother of Gwennie) debut feature is exquisitely romantic, painful, and riotous; everyone's lonely and going about it wrong.

What comedy there is fails to ignite and the romance is stillborn since we don't care who sleeps with whom or whether they do it in real life or the dream world.

Monsters and Critics

A buddy rom-com featuring Martin Freeman and Simon Pegg owes its success to on-screen chemistry but fails to shake the foundations of the silver screen.

The Good Night doesn't quite comfortably synthesize all the notions writer-director Jake Paltrow wants to play with in his feature debut. But the filmmaker's got good taste -- and luck -- in casting.

With The Good Night, like any worthwhile dream, you may not be able to fully appreciate the experience, but after you wake up, you vaguely sense that you accomplished something while being out

The Good Night takes familiar (embarrassingly familiar) male-angst material and makes it go loop-de-loop, so that the jokes hit you from behind and underneath while the bleakness smacks you in the face.

Jake Paltrow's script is clever, though, and the ideas he's trying to explore are interesting.

Jake Paltrow's first feature delves assuredly into the mind of a lost soul who literally encounters the woman of his dreams.

This sleepyhead Prince Charming is in for a rude awakening when the choosy, chain smoking Anna, actual female that she is, finds him an annoying loser, and at best undesirable. Au revoir, unconditional love. Someone wake me when it's over.

If the hero has trouble dozing off, that's not a problem which will affect many viewers of this movie.

Kevin Harley
Total Film

As a comedy of male delusion, Night seems to shrink from its flimsy dramatic subtexts; as a probing of dream and reality in love, its pretensions to depth suggest a neutered comedic courage: Woody Allen-lite.

Such a big grey blanket of misery it should have been called "Eternal Cloud Cover".

A mish-mash of secondhand ideas, with some real misfires.

An all-star cast and Pegg's larger-than-life turn can't stop this offbeat yarn being a bit of a snooze.
