Despite J.K. Simmons' gruff charm and inarguable charisma, the movie is so slight it vanishes without a trace faster than the dislocated Ginnie.
The part may be tailor-made for Simmons' no-nonsense persona, and his performance reliably rock solid, but the bland execution of director Gavin Wiesen and the uninspired scripting of Seth Owen have no comic zing. It's a night all too easy to forget.
There's a formula behind All Nighter that isn't all too original but the life that J.K. Simmons and Emile Hirsch bring to the formula make up for the lack of originality on display.
The story's just chaff; the movie's worth seeing for its performances if you're a fan of those involved. Otherwise, it's forgettable, just like the last hours of being up all night.
It's not even a bad movie, it's something worse: forgettable. [Full review in Spanish]
As with many all-nighters, the evening starts with some good-natured shenanigans and devolves into behavior we'd rather forget.
[All Nighter] unravels when it devolves too far into the madcap ... it feels like the filmmakers ran out of ideas.
"All Nighter" is a missed opportunity, formulaic and tiresome, with Wiesen keeping tight control of material that's usually unleashed from frame one.
It's Netflix and chill fodder for sure, but even with its relatively short running time and Simmons' rampant charisma, All Nighter feels way too much like its own title, a soporific exercise in style over substance.
Not even J.K. Simmons' considerable comedic talents can rescue All Nighter - a tranquillized, misjudged and directionless snoozefest.
A winning performance by J.K. Simmons almost saves Gavin Wiesen's lightweight, heavy-handed L.A. romp.
No, the main duo isn't the problem as much as it is the bad writing and a lot of the cast around them.
