Filled with enough cameos to keep film buffs entertained, this otherwise routine action-comedy by John Landis boasts Michelle Pfeiffer as one of its major attractions. She plays Diana, a woman prone to having affairs with some very dangerous men, and Jeff Goldblum is Ed Okin, an aerospace engineer whose lot is thrown in with Diana's when the woman is caught in a bind at the airport.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The film itself tries sometimes too hard for laughs and at other times strains for shock."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"A little bit of Into the Night is funny, a lot of it is grotesque and all of it has the insidey manner of a movie made not for the rest of us but for moviemakers on the Bel Air circuit who watch each other's films in their own screening rooms."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"Landis at his most cameo-obsessed and self-indulgent."
‑ Rob Thomas, Capital Times (Madison, WI)
"Even the glossy photography and Pfeiffer's convincing performance can't make this add up to more than its slightly amusing parts."
‑ , Film4
"Pfeiffer in particular takes the sort of glamorous yet preposterous part that generally defeats even the best actress and somehow contrives to make it credible every inch of the way."
‑ , Time Out
"Thin and familiar."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
"Strange ensemble noir comedy chase flick."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"Maybe what the movie needed was more professional discipline and less geniality. As a rule, it's probably better to throw the party after the filming is finished."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"The tone, despite the frequent bloodletting, is light, and the film works better than the script would indicate."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"An uninteresting and off-putting movie."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
