Critic Reviews

  1. Time
    Reviewed by: Richard Schickel
    The smartest, funniest, most cleverly structured comedy of the year.
  2. Wall Street Journal
    Reviewed by: Joe Morgenstern
    I took it as a pretty piece of ephemera, and I must confess that I laughed a lot.
  3. Fun, if you're inclined toward cynicism, contempt, nihilism and cool stuff like that.
  4. First-time feature director Harald Zwart has a real flair for farce, and he keeps the outrageous high jinks of the script lively yet grounded in reality.
  5. A spirited, screwball crime-thriller with a sly heart.
  6. Portland Oregonian
    Reviewed by: Ted Mahar
    It is a brisk and sometimes bizarre comedy; funny, yet able to accommodate several sudden deaths comfortably.
  7. Chicago Tribune
    Reviewed by: Michael Wilmington
    Suggests a raunchier, cruder version of a Coen brothers comedy, but it's also a kind of honky-tonk "Rashomon."
  8. Boston Globe
    Reviewed by: Jay Carr
    Neither as rollicking nor as wild as one had hoped, but Tyler's tongue-in-cheek noir goddess transcends cliche and the screenplay's other shortcomings terrifically.
  9. 63
    One Night at McCool's does not quite work, but it has a lot of fun being a near-miss.

    You may enjoy One Night -- but you may feel guilty about it in the morning.
