About Last Night 

Kevin Hart heads up an ensemble cast in this better-than-a-rom-com

It's unfair to call Steve Pink's film a remake of the eponymous 1986 film starring Rob Lowe and Demi Moore. Both films are derived from the same source material — David Mamet's 1974 play Sexual Perversity in Chicago — but the similarities end there. And that's a good thing: Pink's film, starring Kevin Hart, Michael Ealy, Regina Hall and Joy Bryant, has a charm and heart that the original sorely lacked. This is a story about sex, love and screwing up both, but it's not a romantic comedy in the more maligned sense of the term. It transcends the staleness of the genre, delivering a funny, deep and engrossing story about the art of becoming and staying a couple. Ealy and Bryant are sweet, and at times heartbreaking, together, but it's Hart and Hall who steal the show through great chemistry and razor-sharp comedic timing.
