critics consensus

Despite its two stellar leads, Into the Night finds director John Landis indulging in far too many gimmicks in lieu of a well-rounded story. Read critic reviews

Audience Reviews for Into the Night

    The wilder the script and the concept, the more fun John Landis has with it. Sadly, this is a routine tale that is so average and mild and so-so that Landis' attempts to inject humour only manage to kill off any scrap of tension that was there. Shruggable.

    Odd combination of Jeff Goldblum, a depressed insomniac whose life is dull, uneventful and his wife is cheating on him, the other person being Michelle Pfeiffer who is a jewel smuggler and has some Iranians after her for some precious stones. The mismatched pair bump into each other, make friends and have to run from the nasty Iranians which leads to all manner of scrapes and tight situations none of which are particularly exciting or original. The film is really quite dull much like Goldblum's performance and doesn't offer anything other than an impressive list of cameos, why? beats me. Pfeiffer and Goldblum don't blend a tall, the action is weak, its naturally very very dated and director Landis is one of the Iranian agents in (I think) his only full movie role.

    A light hearted thriller with a very young Jeff Goldblum, an insomniac who's headed nowhere with his job as an aerospace engineer. He comes home early from work to find his wife in bed with another man. Confused, he drives "into the night," to find himself and instead finds bizarre adventure and intrigue with a hot babe-in-distress Michelle Pfeifer, a jewel smuggler who's on the run from some international thugs (played by an assortment of celebrities such as director Roger Vadim, rock star David Bowie and comedian Dan Aykroyd). Okay, so this is nothing great but it was cute to see that so many directors making brief appearances in the film as well ((one of them is actually "The Fly" remake director David Cronenberg and this film's director John Landis).

    I didn't get the "humor" of this film. It felt like a mess, the overall idea for the film isn't bad, it's just boring to watch.
