Critic Reviews for The Night Before

All Critics (2)

Aside from a few decent moments, the film never lives up to the promise of its set-up.

the film kept me interested through the end, and I enjoyed the diversion from the typical 80s teen comedy

Audience Reviews for The Night Before

A funny teen comedy, but it's got a predictable, silly, and typical story. Keanu is cute and funny, but that's about it. Overall, it's okay.

Super Reviewer

A hilarious film!

Leo L

Super Reviewer

An 80's teen movie with the standard comedy plot of a popular girl losing a bet where she has to go to prom with a nerd... then the nerd sells her into sex slavery. Ha! Classic.
