It's the small observations that make About Last Night worthwhile.

You don't just walk out thinking that you deserve better relationships from now on, but that you also deserve better movies like this one.

This must be why I'm single. Who wants to be with a guy who looks forward to the complications a significant other will add to my life? Why can't you complain your girlfriend, Fred?

Hart and Hall are downright lovable, their individual live wire comic energies even further elevated in the face of a formidable foil--and that resulting charge also translates into an appropriately volatile and exciting erotic electricity.

The main problem here is the less-than-convincing nature of Danny and Debbie's squabbles...

A remake in name only, "About Last Night" is a poorly directed series of Kevin Hart skits with an occasional emotional moment somehow finding its way onto the screen.

This version neither fizzes nor sparkles, but may prove a painless enough experience -- if you're unfamiliar with the original.

When your intention was always to use the cookie cutter, why bother nodding the head towards any largely imagined inspiration?

A date movie that could have been written by entertainment software, and quite divorced from real human beings and their experiences of sex.

The film's limp and bedraggled. No one looks good in it. You wonder if Mamet would even recognise what he once wrote.

It becomes a bit repetitive but has an energy missing from many romantic comedies plus some proper laughs.

The haunting sounds emanating from Kevin Hart taint this watered-down and glossy reinterpretation of a 1974 David Mamet play.

Ealy and Bryant make for a bland couple and during the more weighty stuff appear to be just going through the motions.

It's raunchier than its '86 counterpart, but still not much of a turn-on.

Drops enough kernels of hard truth into the romcom popcorn box to break a tooth or two.

Regina Hall and Kevin Hart steal the movie from the "stars" and keep the laughs coming

Sexy, witty and romantic, 'About Last Night' is a remake of the 1986 Edward Zwick film adapted from David Mamet's 'Sexual Perversity in Chicago,' a stage play. The 1986 movie and this one both are rated R, but this one has more steam in its dialogue.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4

The new About Last Night clearly wants to honor the old, [but] it needs to embrace the new more often.
