Not shying away from stereotypes and calling others out for following the status quo, it's a film that is hilarious from start to finish, allowing not only Kaling to shine, but Thompson as well.

As great as Kaling is... it's still Emma Thompson who still owns the show.

It has a lot to say about the positioning of famous women, and women of colour, in today's world.
August 15, 2020
Tackling ageism, sexism, privilege and racism, Kaling's script doesn't quite have the snappy one-liner ratio or political nous required for a movie set in this industry, but Thompson is as magnetic as ever and their chemistry together sparkle

Where Late Night goes off the rails is in its last third, which feels entirely disconnected from what precedes it.

An acerbic female buddy film.

Thompson certainly knows how to deliver a zinger. She also brings out the best in difficult, complicated women as well. But the heart of this movie resides in its odd-couple pairing of Dame Emma with Mindy Kaling.

Late Night is the kind of wish fulfillment comedy that makes for a pleasant viewing experience with relatively low stakes and a charming cast.

Like the romcoms it's modeled after, Late Night offers an escape into a world with softer edges, brighter colors, and simpler solutions

Thanks to Mindy Kaling's superb talent, Late Night just might be the most feminist movie of the year.
November 22, 2019
Late Night generously funny throughout while digging deeper and reminding the audience to really fight for what you want and deserve in the workplace.

Overall, Late Night is as inspiring as it is entertaining. Both Thompson and Kaling deliver great performances, but the latter finally has the chance to highlight her screenwriting skills on the silver screen.

Even though there are plenty of cliches here, the film tells a story rarely told in Hollywood about the behind-the-scenes. [Full Review in Spanish]

Mindy Kaling's script is full of complete and complex ideas. [Full Review in Spanish]

I liked it, but I wanted to love it... It's almost like it pulls its punches here and there -- I wanted more bite from it.
September 24, 2019
There's an odd cynicism running through Late Night that has less to do with being who you are and more to do with being the person everyone wants to you to be.
September 23, 2019
How devastating for a movie that is meant to be topical to feel like it has been on the shelf for a while.
