Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Writers DeClue and Kazurinsky have created a recognizable geography for every age; you suspect that About Last Night will set off pangs of identification everywhere."
‑ Sheila Benson, Los Angeles Times
"This is the yuppie drama that St. Elmo`s Fire wanted to be but wasn't."
‑ Gene Siskel, Chicago Tribune
‑ Joe Baltake, Philadelphia Daily News
"Lowe and Moore do well as the on-again, off-again partners, although it is James Belushi, in an over-the-top supporting performance his brother John would have been proud of, who all but walks off with the show."
‑ Peter Freedman, Radio Times
"Starts out strong and has potential, but then deteriorates into soap opera and endless montages."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"Homework assignment: Is the decision to change both the title and the thrust of Mamet's play evidence of perversity or of perversion? Due tomorrow. Class dismissed."
‑ Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Film lacks much of Mamet's grittiness, but is likable in its own right."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"Engaging performances from the two leads are complemented by a witty script with some great one-liners, and five-star support from James Belushi."
‑ , Empire Magazine
"What emerges on the screen, however, is largely bland and prettified, virtually indistinguishable from any other trendy Hollywood romance of its period."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Great adaptation of Mamet's play...if they ever make my life story, Jim Belushi is playing me!"
‑ Michael A. Smith, Nolan's Pop Culture Review
"The shocks of recognition are largely absorbed by the standard narrative structure that replaces Mamet's blackouts; the characters, instead of functioning as archetypes, look underwritten, half alive."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
"The screenwriters work many nice little observations into their occasionally over-quippish script, but this is considerably smaller than the sum of its parts."
‑ , Time Out
"About Last Night... is occasionally wonderful, but inevitably disappointing."
‑ Candice Russell, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
"It takes a lot in order for Jim Belushi to be the best actor in something."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"clever script and performances"
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
