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.

With her sharp suits and even sharper tongue, Thompson's character is a far cry from her many dignified roles in tasteful period pieces, and it's thrilling to see a woman character like this.

A good movie, about two female characters...women can certainly excel...
August 16, 2019
Moments of brilliance, some decent belly laughs courtesy of some great gender gags are the upside to a pretty patchy, predictable and undernourishing overall experience.
August 15, 2019
Mindy Kaling wrote the screenplay with Emma Thompson in mind and you can see the character was crafted for exactly her talents.

...Because Late Night featured such a complex character in Katherine, and such a capable actor in Emma Thompson, the movie probably could have gone a few floors deeper into the dungeons of our dated ideas.
August 12, 2019
Light tone, deep messages in female-centric comedy.
August 11, 2019
It's too much of a Cinderella-story in places but for the most part, this is still an entertaining, feel-good comedy-drama.
August 9, 2019
Kaling and Thompson are going after something different, and while it's acerbically funny at times it also feels quite real and of the moment.
August 9, 2019
In the end, Kaling and Thompson's double act delivers enough to stay up for - if you can resist the itch to change channels along the way.
August 8, 2019
Aside from a brilliant Thompson, what keeps this engaging (though not always engaged) affair in an audience's good graces is its lively scriptwriting.
August 7, 2019
With a well-intentioned screenplay determined to invoke discussion from an audience, 'Late Night' aims to make a relevant point but is too generically clichéd for its own good.
August 7, 2019
A worthy venture out to bask in the gloriousness that is Emma Thompson.
August 7, 2019
Mindy Kaling is so toasty-warm and regular-girl relatable you instantly feel you've known her for years.
August 7, 2019
Late Night is smart, sassy and funny. Just like its leading lady, Emma Thompson, who devours the role of late-night TV host and spits out crackle and pop.
August 6, 2019
Late Night is a perfectly fine, periodically funny, if a little predictable, comedy.
August 1, 2019
Late Night is charming enough but could have been more.
August 1, 2019
...a solid, frequently charming and funny romp and for Thompson's performance alone is very much worth the privilege of your time.
July 31, 2019
Often funny, with top-tier supporting cast, it's a surprisingly old-fashioned comedy of manners.
