It's telling that The Devil Wears Prada, the closest thematic comparison to Kaling's scenario, feels more fearless and timely, even though it's 13 years old.

Late Night too often pulls its punches.

The director Nisha Ganatra doesn't do much visually but she adroitly works around Kaling's stand-and-deliver acting and gives Thompson the room she needs to turn a cliché into a striking character.

Late Night's subject feels timely, and it's uncommonly crowd-pleasing, even broad.

They never quite cohere, and both ultimately lack the very bite missing from Katherine's fictional talk show-the closest to a truly withering gag here is Ike Barinholtz's amusing Dane Cook impersonation, though even that's a little past its sell date.

It's a charming, intelligent movie with a lot of heart and, naturally, some killer jokes.
