Aside from a few decent moments, the film never lives up to the promise of its set-up.

the film kept me interested through the end, and I enjoyed the diversion from the typical 80s teen comedy

Audience Reviews for The Night Before

A funny teen comedy, but it's got a predictable, silly, and typical story. Keanu is cute and funny, but that's about it. Overall, it's okay.
