About Last Night by Adele ParksFor thirty years, best friends Stephanie and Philippa have been practically inseparable. Theres nothing they would not do for one another. Until a few simple words change everything.
I need you to say that I was with you.
Steph, eternally solid, considerate and dependable, is begging her best friend to lie to the police as shes desperately trying to conceal two shocking secrets to protect her family. Pip, self-consigned to the role of scatty, frivolous hot-head is overwhelmed; shes normally the one asking for help in a crisis although never anything as catastrophic as this. Both women have always believed that friendship is built on mutual selflessness, compromise and trust. Are those beliefs now to be tested beyond endurance?

Common Sense says
T he 80s relationship comedy About Last Night based on David Mamet's play Sexual Perversity in Chicago about two male and two female friends who form a dating quartet has been remade — with the two couples split more clearly than ever along rom-com lines. Kevin Hart and Regina Hall are the funny couple, Bernie and Joan, doing the goofier stuff and having the wilder sex. It's basically a vehicle for Hart, who does get some laughs, especially when he is adoringly supportive of Joan's cooking — but when she is away from the table, urges his guests to spit the food out into resealable bags that he is secretly providing. The rest of the time it is by-the-numbers comedy, a date movie that could have been written by entertainment software, and quite divorced from real human beings and their experiences of sex. Paula Patton plays Danny's creepy ex Alison: she looks entirely robotic.
While the original Rob Lowe-Demi Moore vehicle received strong critical attention during its release, it seems to have lost its cultural cachet, leaving this black-cast redo unbridled by any reputation to live up to. The pic opens with a burst of zippy energy as Bernie Hart and Joan Hall relay the events of their crazy night to his co-worker Danny Ealy and her roommate Debbie Bryant before a double date. While their evening initially looks like a bomb, with Bernie and Joan zipping off to the bathroom, Danny and Debbie find themselves entwined in something more intimate. Soon their weeknight getaways develop into a full-blown relationship as Debbie moves in with Danny, despite the adamant protests of Bernie and Joan. But as Danny attempts to change careers an expendable subplot involving an Irish pub run by Chris McDonald , their bond runs into troubled waters, testing their levels of commitment and passion. Still, the actors give the proceedings a mostly quick-witted repartee that prevails over the occasionally stale script. The editing by Tracy Wadmore-Smith and Shelly Westerman matches the tempo of the often fast-paced dialogue.
