Last Night isn't for everyone. Like a troubled relationship, it's filled with infuriatingly irrational arguments and sulky silences, and its emotional impact may well be dependent on the viewer's own experiences.

The actors try their best to transcend the flimsy script and unappealing direction, but ultimately the movie offers a mostly hollow experience that delivers a night that you will struggle to remember.

A well-acted, intellectually ambitious and emotionally honest roundelay of enticement. The film stands out as a rare example of a work more interested in evoking universal thoughtfulness than telling its audience what to think.
| Original Score: 4.5/5

Last Night develops into a provocative (if slightly anti-climactic) tryst.

The film is as shiny and thin as a coat of nail varnish, but beguilingly photographed...

An hour and a half of pan-American todger-teasing.

The word sexy is horribly overused. When it comes to this pair, though, it's the only word that will do.

It's quite enjoyable, and the ending is very good -- I just didn't believe a moment of it.

While it's initially hard to care much about characters this privileged, the emotions and situations are ones we can all relate to.

Daily Express (UK)
June 3, 2011
A glossy melodrama that turns a gossip column premise into an earnest, well-acted rumination on modern relationships.

All in all, this is a low-key affair, but its strength is in the keen observation of how relationships develop.

It's a little slow and not a great deal happens, but it's no real hardship watching beautiful people for 90 minutes.

Daily Telegraph (UK)
June 2, 2011
A good-looking, tightly-scripted and ever-so-slightly superficial drama about a married couple on the brink of infidelity.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

June 2, 2011
A small-scale, indulgent but worthwhile movie from writer-director Massy Tadjedin about infidelity, jealousy and the quarter-life crisis.

Leaves you to fill in the gaps, but you won't care enough to bother.

Whether you care about her characters or not (and you won't), Tadjedin does at least keep you guessing as to who will take the moral high ground come the end.

Engaging, sharply observed relationship drama, enlivened by strong performances from all four leads, though the fact that it constantly feels stagey and contrived is something of a distraction.

Shallow without being fun or sexy, the picture is a well-meaning but ponderous bore. The characters are dull, their ruminations tedious and uninvolving and the relationship insights banal.

'Last Night' is an empty exercise in sheer self-regard, a tedious, lifeless trawl through the secret lives of the rich and beautiful.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

A glum, navel-gazing affair that asks us to invest in self-absorbed protagonists living absurdly narcissistic lives.
