Wall Street Journal
I took it as a pretty piece of ephemera, and I must confess that I laughed a lot.

Chicago Tribune
Suggests a raunchier, cruder version of a Coen brothers comedy, but it's also a kind of honky-tonk "Rashomon."

Chicago Sun-Times
One Night at McCool's does not quite work, but it has a lot of fun being a near-miss.

You may enjoy One Night -- but you may feel guilty about it in the morning.

Boston Globe
Neither as rollicking nor as wild as one had hoped, but Tyler's tongue-in-cheek noir goddess transcends cliche and the screenplay's other shortcomings terrifically.

Philadelphia Inquirer
A curious screwball "noir," doesn't so much bend established genres as blend them into an unappetizing cocktail, where they curdle before pouring.

New York Daily News
Zwart never gets the tone right in this very American comedy.

Christian Science Monitor
All so fast and frenetic.

Rolling Stone
Tyler, a true beauty, gives the role a valiant try, but her range is too limited to play this amalgam of female perfection.

Entertainment Weekly
More than just dumb, the picture is embarrassingly dorky.

A shamelessly dumb movie.
