Movie Info

Filled with enough cameos to keep film buffs entertained, this otherwise routine action-comedy by John Landis boasts Michelle Pfeiffer as one of its major attractions. She plays Diana, a woman prone to having affairs with some very dangerous men, and Jeff Goldblum is Ed Okin, an aerospace engineer whose lot is thrown in with Diana's when the woman is caught in a bind at the airport.

Critic Reviews for Into the Night

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (5)

The film itself tries sometimes too hard for laughs and at other times strains for shock.

Pfeiffer in particular takes the sort of glamorous yet preposterous part that generally defeats even the best actress and somehow contrives to make it credible every inch of the way.

Maybe what the movie needed was more professional discipline and less geniality. As a rule, it's probably better to throw the party after the filming is finished.

Top Critic

A little bit of Into the Night is funny, a lot of it is grotesque and all of it has the insidey manner of a movie made not for the rest of us but for moviemakers on the Bel Air circuit who watch each other's films in their own screening rooms.

Thin and familiar.

The tone, despite the frequent bloodletting, is light, and the film works better than the script would indicate.

Audience Reviews for Into the Night

½

Odd combination of Jeff Goldblum, a depressed insomniac whose life is dull, uneventful and his wife is cheating on him, the other person being Michelle Pfeiffer who is a jewel smuggler and has some Iranians after her for some precious stones. The mismatched pair bump into each other, make friends and have to run from the nasty Iranians which leads to all manner of scrapes and tight situations none of which are particularly exciting or original.

The film is really quite dull much like Goldblum's performance and doesn't offer anything other than an impressive list of cameos, why? beats me. Pfeiffer and Goldblum don't blend a tall, the action is weak, its naturally very very dated and director Landis is one of the Iranian agents in (I think) his only full movie role.

A scary Irene Pappas, a shocking hostage situation, and David Bowie's small role are the only things I enjoyed, even with all the people (Carl Perkins, Rick Baker, etc.) who did their cameos well. The dialogue isn't great and the dead air Landis allows to form around Goldbloom's lines keeps the movie from starting to live.

A great zany thriller movie with an interesting story and good actors. I really liked this movie.
