Product Description

Amazon.ca

For better or worse, David Mamet's hit play Sexual Perversity in Chicago is watered down into this romantic comedy about a couple (played by Rob Lowe and Demi Moore) who get together and then fall apart due to Lowe's character's inability to commit. Jim Belushi is on hand as the gratuitously swinish best friend who looks at women as meat, and Elizabeth Perkins is entertainingly arch as Moore's gal pal and Belushi's nemesis. There's nothing about this 1986 film by Edward Zwick (cocreator of TV's thirtysomething and director of Glory and Courage Under Fire) that is at all reminiscent of Mamet, but that doesn't make it bad or dull. While one can feel the script straining to fill in gaps where chunks of the original play have disappeared, Zwick often successfully tells the story without words at all, relying on the actors to convey pure emotion. Lowe is good, and the then-willowy Moore's understated performance reminds one of the actress she might have been before she became a spectacle. --Tom Keogh

4.0 out of 5 stars Timeless Classic April 21 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Okay guys, if you want to learn about the dynamics of entering into a mature and solid relationship and how not to screw it up, then buy this Blu Ray. Cast is pretty amazing as well, if you think about it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Its a pretty standardized romantic comedy. June 4 2004
Format:DVD
Because of the cast, I thought this would be "Brat-Packish." It's a pretty standardized romantic film. Not really a good date movie because there is alot of nudity. However, in all honesty Demi Moore gets extremely naked and its pretty rare footage of her bearing all before she got too famous. All in all, About Last Night is your basic 80's dating movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slice of Life...Perhaps a Bit Stale Feb. 7 2004
Format:DVD
I enjoyed this movie. It was a nice little romance that followed the formula. First of all boy meets girl, and a relationship develops. Quick film sequences follow showing the happy couple, hand in hand, laughing and enjoying walking, shopping and just having a good time. The next step is moving in with each other, and then facing those unavoidable difficulties of adapting to life together. The good times are followed by not so good times, and, according to formula, there is a falling out and ultimate reconciliation. I am not revealing much here as there are no real surprises in this movie. None whatsoever. There are jealousy scenes; the "what's bothering you?" question followed by silence; the scenes deploring each other's household habits, and so on and on.
It's pleasant viewing, though, with Demi Moore and Rob Lowe obvious candidates for the most attractive couple of the year award. While their struggles as lovers are extremely realistic, and can cause some squirming by most of us viewers who have tread this path at some point in our lives, the two best friends of our couple are something else. Belushi and Perkins give us something different to squirm about. If you have had a lover with a friend that you didn't much like just get a load of these two friends from hell. Belushi is a boorish womanizer, and Perkins is a possessive snot. These two, possessing some of the most obnoxious traits found in humans, are both totally non-supportive of the growing relationship between Lowe and Moore. Belushi plays his part well, showing the ugliest traits to be found in the male. I kept wishing he would be run over by a truck, and thus vanish from the movie. But then, I guess, the movie itself would have become even more of a routine story of relationship problems.
All in all the movie was well done. I just wish there had been a real surprise or two. As it is you sit through the whole thing fully aware in advance of what will happen next.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Representation of Dating Life the 80s Dec 4 2003
Format:DVD
If you were old enough to date in the 80s and were in your 20s to early 30s back then, a good many of the situations portayed in this movie will look quite familiar. I know many people who've lived through all the situations that arise in this movie, and I think most people who've ever dated can relate to something in this movie. Despite the hairstyles and clothes, the content of the movie itself are probably still relevant today in terms of new relationships and dating.
Although this movie is no classic, it is still quite enjoyable. James Belushi is the quirky, macho, insensitive sidekick to Rob Lowe and does a decent job, though not a great one. What I like most about the movie is that Lowe and Moore's characters really develop well. Their characters seem to grow and mature as the relationship gets deeper. Lowe and Demi have very good chemistry together, and they sell the idea that they're very atracted to each other, which helps make it believable--and their acting is actually pretty good too.
Demi has several nude scenes... Both Lowe and Moore are very young (around the "Brat Pack" days) and look great. I wouldn't recommend it for young kids due to the nudity and language, but it's still a good flick regardless and I do recommend it for anyone 18 or over.

5.0 out of 5 stars good stuff Aug. 4 2003
Format:DVD
'About Last Night..' is by far one of the best movies I have ever seen. It has a bit of an eighties touch and a little TOO much nudity but, other than that this movie is awesome. Rob Lowe looks sexy and acts his best, and Demi Moore is just beautiful in this movie.
It takes place in Chicago and two singles Debbie and Danny, have a one night stand. They move in together and try to make a sexual relationship into a romantic one, will it work out? HMM.. I highly reccomend this movie, especially if you are a Rob Lowe fan(you see a lot of his @ss).

3.0 out of 5 stars 2 parts 80's romantic comedy, 1 part soft porn July 21 2003
Format:DVD
Two parts 80's romantic comedy, one part soft porn, this movie isn't anything spectacular, but it's fun. The jokes were cute, you might laugh out loud once or twice, and you get to see some pretty steamy love scenes towards the middle. It's no great cinematic feat, but it's certainly not a bad way to spend a rainy day with your honey.

5.0 out of 5 stars ... About This Film Nov. 27 2002
Format:DVD
Arguably, ABOUT LAST NIGHT was not only one of the best date movies to come out of the 1980's but also it's simple story of boy-meets-girl in the modern age is one terrific romance. Rob Lowe (at the peak of his preeniness) and Demi Moore (at the birth of her true beauty) fall in and out and back in love, with Elizabeth Perkins and Jim Belushi along for the ride ... and they almost steal the film. One great shooting script of the play SEXUAL PERVERSITY IN CHICAGO and terrific locations, ABOUT LAST NIGHT is a film that I'll always cherish.
