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

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.

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.

Format:VHS Tape
Most of the other reviews have nailed it when they say that this is a realistic look at relationships and dating. The haristyles have changed, Rob and Demi have grown up, and the fashion is seriously dated, but the theme, and the sheer believability of this couple stands the test of time.
In some ways this is a movie of cliches. Danny (Lowe) is a commitment phobic former womanizer, Debbie (Demi) is emotional and falls in love fast. Their respective best friends are resentful/jealous of their relationship. But hey, cliches are cliches for a reason, and all these characters will feel familiar, not so much because you've seen them before in the movies, but because you'll likely recognize in them friends of your own.
In many ways the story is the same as all the rest -- Boy meets Girl, Boy Gets Girl, Boy loses Girl (can't say anymore -- don't wanna spoil the ending). But this is the rare movie which actually picks up where the others leave off -- it's not about how the two come together in this big crazy world, it's about whether they can stay together in this big, crazy world.
If you miss any great 80s movies, make sure this is not one of them. Highly Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars DON'T TAKE LOVE FOR GRANTED... Dec 29 2000
Format:DVD
This was one of the few films of the 80's in which the style actually met the substance. "About Last Night..." is enjoyable enough for the mid-80's pastel decors and slick Chicago locales and cinematography, not to mention an INCREDIBLE adult contemporary soundtrack and SHEENA EASTON theme song, "So Far, So Good." However, the plot is the true draw of repeat viewings. I never saw the play from which this screenplay was adapted, so I can't compare, but I would not call this film "watered down" in the least. In fact, this was probably one of the "meatier," realistic plots of the entire 1980's, and this is the best example of Demi Moore's acting skill I have witnessed.
Moore and Lowe meet, and both play slightly manipulative head games on one another to keep their detachment intact. As they slowly fall in love and reveal more of themselves to one another, each becomes more afraid of the vulnerability each experiences. While both want to continue the relationship, an unintentional power struggle begins, and as with many youthful relationships, no one can establish when it started or by whom. Moore's character wants to be closer, but fears smothering Lowe. Lowe just wants things to go along like they are without really "thinking" about it that much. She analyzes, he doesn't: the whole girl/guy "Venus/Mars" scenario begins.
Elizabeth Perkins and James Belushi are great as the best friend of each main character. In their individual bitter loneliness, each "friend," in the NAME of friendship, manages more to erode confidence in the relationship than support each friend.
