[A] witless whimsy.

Flawed, but with enough interest to suggest Jake Paltrow may be one to keep an eye out for in future.

...a low-key yet consistently engaging effort...

This sleepyhead Prince Charming is in for a rude awakening when the choosy, chain smoking Anna, actual female that she is, finds him an annoying loser, and at best undesirable. Au revoir, unconditional love. Someone wake me when it's over.

The Good Night is a superlative feature film from Jake Paltrow; a fulfilling buffet of aches and pains from the discontented, poured into an amusing, uneasy comedic fantasy that barely misses a step.

Writer-director Jake Paltrow's (yes, brother of Gwennie) debut feature is exquisitely romantic, painful, and riotous; everyone's lonely and going about it wrong.

If the hero has trouble dozing off, that's not a problem which will affect many viewers of this movie.

As a comedy of male delusion, Night seems to shrink from its flimsy dramatic subtexts; as a probing of dream and reality in love, its pretensions to depth suggest a neutered comedic courage: Woody Allen-lite.

Such a big grey blanket of misery it should have been called "Eternal Cloud Cover".

A mish-mash of secondhand ideas, with some real misfires.

What comedy there is fails to ignite and the romance is stillborn since we don't care who sleeps with whom or whether they do it in real life or the dream world.

An all-star cast and Pegg's larger-than-life turn can't stop this offbeat yarn being a bit of a snooze.

Sadly not the stuff of dreams.

Time Out
January 18, 2008
Skimming through comedy, satire and cautionary tale, it's all somewhat vague - exasperatingly so when suggestive artiness seems to have been intended. Not as clever as it thinks.

Despite some wry humour, the miscast leads and sour tone are as out of place in this Woody Allen landscape as Gwyneth's silly wig.

The Good Night toys with some interesting ideas but it never quite works, largely because none of the characters are particularly likeable.

The movie drags on.

Feature debut of Jake Platrow (brother of star Gwyneth Paltrow, who co-stars) is a disappointing meditation on the danger and seductiveness of dreams, a pale imitation of Woody Allen's edgier urban comedies.

Despite going in fully expecting and wanting to enjoy this movie, it instead left me vaguely depressed and highly disappointed.
