I know, I know...another remake. Yes, Hollywood is still in the midst of a creative bankruptcy, so it continues to churn out remake after remake, sequel after sequel. BUT, this one stars Kevin Hart, with whom I may just be a tad obsessed lately. He's just so damn hilarious.
The comedian stars in ABOUT LAST NIGHT, the reboot of the 1986 Demi Moore and Rob Lowe (along with James Belushi and Elizabeth Perkins) romantic comedy that navigates the ins and outs of casual and serious dating. Read the official synopsis below:
Comedian Kevin Hart and his co-star Regina Hall play a couple who are trying to be an example to their two best friends that just happened to start dating one another. The new love affair eventually leads to complications between the sex lives of both couples and their friendships. Michael Ealy (TV's Almost Human) and Joy Bryant (TV's Parenthood) play the new couple that are struggling to keep their relationship from falling apart.
"About Last Night," which is a remake of Edward Zwick's 1986 comedy that starred Rob Lowe and Demi Moore, was directed by Steve Pink (Hot Tub Time Machine) and co-stars Paula Patton, Christopher McDonald, Adam Rodriguez, and Bryan Callen. The film is set to open on Valentine's Day, February 14th.
This sounds like typical romantic comedy fare. Hart, Ely and Hall all starred in the blockbuster Think Like a Man just last year and I'm sure they're hoping to duplicate its success with this new film. Paula Patton seems to also be stuck in the romantic comedy haze (she's also got Baggage Claim heading to theaters on Friday).
I wasn't much of a fan of Steve Pink's Hot Tub Time Machine, but I did like Leslye Headland's Bachelorette. So I am hoping she brought more of that cheeky dialogue to this script. I haven't seen the original film (which is weird because I thought I saw most Moore and Lowe 80s films), so if you've seen it perhaps you can offer a different opinion about this remake.
In either case, check out the trailer below and share our thoughts in the comment box.
