Writers DeClue and Kazurinsky have created a recognizable geography for every age; you suspect that About Last Night will set off pangs of identification everywhere.
February 13, 2014
Engaging performances from the two leads are complemented by a witty script with some great one-liners, and five-star support from James Belushi.

About Last Night... is occasionally wonderful, but inevitably disappointing.

Homework assignment: Is the decision to change both the title and the thrust of Mamet's play evidence of perversity or of perversion? Due tomorrow. Class dismissed.

The shocks of recognition are largely absorbed by the standard narrative structure that replaces Mamet's blackouts; the characters, instead of functioning as archetypes, look underwritten, half alive.

Lowe and Moore do well as the on-again, off-again partners, although it is James Belushi, in an over-the-top supporting performance his brother John would have been proud of, who all but walks off with the show.

What emerges on the screen, however, is largely bland and prettified, virtually indistinguishable from any other trendy Hollywood romance of its period.

This is the yuppie drama that St. Elmo`s Fire wanted to be but wasn't.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4

It takes a lot in order for Jim Belushi to be the best actor in something.

Starts out strong and has potential, but then deteriorates into soap opera and endless montages.

Film lacks much of Mamet's grittiness, but is likable in its own right.

Great adaptation of Mamet's play...if they ever make my life story, Jim Belushi is playing me!

The screenwriters work many nice little observations into their occasionally over-quippish script, but this is considerably smaller than the sum of its parts.
November 8, 2004
clever script and performances
| Original Score: 3/5
November 18, 2003
One of the best movies of the 80's. Lowe and Moore are hotter than hell
| Original Score: 4/5
May 24, 2003
A rare, if dated, treat -- an intelligent film that's grown-up enough to deal with sex, sexism and friendship, with wit and honesty.
May 20, 2003
You've a right to wonder why anyone would want to work so hard -- with such an expenditure of imagination -- to transform a play with such a distinctive voice into a movie that sounds like any number of others.
July 28, 2002
Simultaneously obnoxious and insightful; a great cast keeps things afloat.
| Original Score: 3/5
January 15, 2002
A comedy about singletons, sexual politics, and the emptiness of relationships based only on physical attraction.
