Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"'Last Night' is an empty exercise in sheer self-regard, a tedious, lifeless trawl through the secret lives of the rich and beautiful."
‑ Tom Huddleston, Time Out
"It's the sort of movie that thinks cutting between two different stories makes it art. Usually, it feels like an exercise in art. There's a lot of calisthenics but very little beauty or truth or whatever it is the movie is going for."
‑ Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
"The actors try their best to transcend the flimsy script and unappealing direction, but ultimately the movie offers a mostly hollow experience that delivers a night that you will struggle to remember."
‑ Ben Rawson-Jones, Digital Spy
"The film is as shiny and thin as a coat of nail varnish, but beguilingly photographed..."
‑ Philip French, Guardian
"It's quite enjoyable, and the ending is very good -- I just didn't believe a moment of it."
‑ Anthony Quinn, Independent
"Forget about sex or adultery -- there isn't enough life in Last Night."
‑ Stephen Cole, Globe and Mail
"Will Michael succumb and prove Joanna correct in her suspicions? Will Alex's French accent conquer all? Do you care? I didn't."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"A well-acted, intellectually ambitious and emotionally honest roundelay of enticement. The film stands out as a rare example of a work more interested in evoking universal thoughtfulness than telling its audience what to think."
‑ Brent Simon, Screen International
"An hour and a half of pan-American todger-teasing."
‑ Robbie Collin, News of the World
"While it's initially hard to care much about characters this privileged, the emotions and situations are ones we can all relate to."
‑ David Edwards, Daily Mirror [UK]
"Tadjedin banks on the power of telling, familiar moments, betting that viewers will recognize the heartache at the center of a fleeting expression or hurried action. For the most part, her gamble pays off."
‑ Stephanie Merry, Washington Post
"Massy Tadjedin's intimate directorial debut takes a spare, thoughtful approach to relationships."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"Last Night develops into a provocative (if slightly anti-climactic) tryst."
‑ Sophie Ivan, Film4
"The word sexy is horribly overused. When it comes to this pair, though, it's the only word that will do."
‑ Charlotte O'Sullivan, This is London
"A glossy melodrama that turns a gossip column premise into an earnest, well-acted rumination on modern relationships."
‑ Allan Hunter, Daily Express
