A funny and entertaining if predictable romantic comedy
I as of this review haven't seen the original About Last Night this movie is based on so I'm coming into this fresh in a sense. However, the word fresh isn't something to describe this movie as it is a giant checklist for rom com plot twists and clichés. Thankfully, the cast here elevates to a highly enjoyable rom com that makes use of the cast to elevate the admittedly generic material.
Good: Like I said, the cast is the main selling point of the movie. Obviously, the attention goes towards Regina Hall and Kevin Hart and rightfully so because they are hilarious together. They work off each other so well that the movie could have been about them and it still would have worked. They are the bright spot of the movie. Michael Ealy and Joy Bryant provide the more toned down couple here and they do good to thanks to their likability. The humor when it hits it provides the laughs as well.
Bad: Like I said, the movie has no surprises and any cliché or scenario you might expect from a movie like this will be there. As much as the cast does a great job, the material is still too predictable to elevate it more than the typical romantic comedy. If it had maybe a more dramatic tone, it could have worked a little better.
Overall, while it does suffer from clichés and a familiar premise, the cast and the humor makes this an above average rom com worthy for a date night.
