Critic Reviews for Blame It On The Night

All Critics (1)

Lacks focus and understanding, clutching surface details to supply substance when a concentration of personality would've propelled the concept further. Though it rarely bores, it's hardly significant.

Audience Reviews for Blame It On The Night

The main problem with this movie is that it never ever convinces. It is a familiar story and not even well done at that. The acting is never believable, the characters are shallow stereotypes. Predictable, too often slow moving and even the music isn?t good enough to spark life into the movie.
