    Nicely done. It's a genuine look at a worn out television staple - the late night talk show. This movie is well cast, written and a blessing during the extended lock down we all share. Grab some popcorn and get ready to smile.

    Although it is at times overbearing in the execution of its themes, and the plot isn't entirely original, Late Night still greatly benefits from a timely (and often hilarious) examination of diversity, representation, and misogyny in the late night television business, as well as an immeasurably enjoyable and committed performance from star Emma Thompson.
  • Rating: 2 out of 5 stars
    Despite a strong performance by Emma Thompson, the movie fails to deliver any meaningful message in an original, or even entertaining, way. Relying on tacky oversimplification while trying to deliver meaningful observations in an attempt to balance light drama with social insight, the movie lands on mediocre, accomplishing neither very well.

    It was alright, but did not do much for me

    Boring, predictable and lacking originality, Late Night show won't show you anything you haven't seen before about power abuse and maltreating employees. It hasn't any funny moments and the plot is so vulgar that you will be always guessing with success what happens next.

    Badly directed by Nisha Ganatra and terrible script. Very average acting performance by all the 'B-listers', including Mindy Kailing. The plot was all over the place with nothing for the viewer to really catch on to. 1 out of 5

    Proof that an excellent cast can't compensate for poor writing. Billed as a 'comedy' that is sparse on the lols and heavy on preachy social justice themes. It is hard to wring laughs out of a format like this, but in the hands of a more nuanced or skilled writing team this could have been passable. This film is targeted at a specific demographic, of which I am unlikely to be a part. For its target audience, this will deliver the desired comfort-viewing and provide affirmation for underlying beliefs.

    Late Night is unlikable in the worst possible way. While some comedy movies' strengths come from cynicism and mean-spirited humor, Late Night tries too hard in being satisfying rather than being engaging or enjoyable.

    Exceeded all expectations.

    Loved the female leads and strong performers. There was reality in the script and it was well performed. Lovely lovely movie. Tears and laughter. Ps Emma Thompson steals the show.
