Storyline

USA Up All Night is USA Cable Network's weekend movie program that lasts into the wee hours of the night. The quality of movies range from top rate to cheesy. In the beginning, Up All Night had hosts that presented the movies and had skits during the films. Gilbert Gottfried hosted on Saturdays in New York City in the beginning in 1989, and halfway through that same year, Caroline Schlitt was tapped as Friday host in Los Angeles. In 1991, Rhonda Shear would replace Schlitt as Friday's host, and late moved to New York in 1995. In 1998, USA decided to do away with Shear and Gottfried and just show movies.

It doesn't get any better
11 July 2009 | by ctomvelu1See all my reviews

I had completely forgotten about this late night movie show until I came across a reference to it on another IMDb page. And what a great show it was, with wonderful bottom-of-the-barrel flicks interspersed with the occasional legit movie, and hosted by various funny folks like Gilbert Gottfried, Such fond memories. The topic of female nudity -- a frequent occurrence in many of the flicks shown -- and how this was handled makes for some very funny reading here, and I remember that sort of thing vividly. Today, the station would simply optically obscure what it doesn't want us to see, instead of making ridiculous and downright damaging edits. Many of these films may never be seen again, sad to say. I agree with those who suggest watching G4, which runs some pretty awful and hilarious flicks from time to time. But it's not and never will be "USA Up All Night." That was one of a kind.
