Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"On paper, About Last Night is a third-generation copy of David Mamet's 1974 stage play Sexual Perversity in Chicago -- but if anything... it comes closer to Mamet's rancorous vision of dueling hormones than the '80s screen version did."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"Mostly, Hart aces his many showcase moments, not so much stealing the movie as occasionally letting the other actors possess it for a while."
‑ Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice
"This must be why I'm single. Who wants to be with a guy who looks forward to the complications a significant other will add to my life? Why can't you complain your girlfriend, Fred?"
‑ Fred Topel, CraveOnline
"A remake in name only, "About Last Night" is a poorly directed series of Kevin Hart skits with an occasional emotional moment somehow finding its way onto the screen."
‑ Michael A. Smith, MediaMikes
"A date movie that could have been written by entertainment software, and quite divorced from real human beings and their experiences of sex."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"While this version lacks the subtlety of the original, it delivers enough raunchy humor to be far more entertaining."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"Neither director Steve Pink nor screenwriter Leslye Headland put much effort into basic storytelling."
‑ Michael Sragow, Orange County Register
"Hart and Hall are downright lovable, their individual live wire comic energies even further elevated in the face of a formidable foil--and that resulting charge also translates into an appropriately volatile and exciting erotic electricity."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"This version neither fizzes nor sparkles, but may prove a painless enough experience -- if you're unfamiliar with the original."
‑ Paul Whittington, Irish Independent
"The film's limp and bedraggled. No one looks good in it. You wonder if Mamet would even recognise what he once wrote."
‑ Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
"The 2014 model of About Last Night... it beefs up the girl-side element of the story, incorporates considerably more frank sex talk, and generally provides its cast with a lot more meat to chew on and spit back out."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Globe and Mail
"his film has the looseness of a movie made of outtakes -- but they mostly work, and they mostly involve Hall and Hart. They're the undercard that takes over the movie."
‑ Wesley Morris, Grantland
"The main problem here is the less-than-convincing nature of Danny and Debbie's squabbles..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"When your intention was always to use the cookie cutter, why bother nodding the head towards any largely imagined inspiration?"
‑ Donald Clarke, Irish Times
"It becomes a bit repetitive but has an energy missing from many romantic comedies plus some proper laughs."
‑ Henry Fitzherbert, Daily Express
