Consensus: About Last Night wanders even further from the David Mamet play that inspired the original, but it benefits from an engaging cast and a screenplay that smartly balances romance and comedy.

Owen Gleiberman
Entertainment Weekly

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.

Mostly, Hart aces his many showcase moments, not so much stealing the movie as occasionally letting the other actors possess it for a while.

Same jokes, but better set design. Everything is candles and good lighting, beautiful people in exquisitely designed apartments, moaning about love.

While this version lacks the subtlety of the original, it delivers enough raunchy humor to be far more entertaining.

Neither director Steve Pink nor screenwriter Leslye Headland put much effort into basic storytelling.

It's the small observations that make About Last Night worthwhile.

Globe and Mail

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.

Wesley Morris

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.

You don't just walk out thinking that you deserve better relationships from now on, but that you also deserve better movies like this one.
