It’s been a few months since the last trailer for About Last Night, which finds Kevin Hart, Regina Hall, Michael Ealy and Joy Bryant in the remake of Ed Zwick’s 1986 Brat pack-era comedy. Now here comes a less raunchy regular promo, which finds the witty interplay put ahead of the foreplay.
Patterned along similar lines to the ‘80s version (and still paying proper respect to the original source material, David Mamet’s play Sexual Perversity In Chicago), About Last Night finds mismatched lovers Hart and Hall getting together, and introducing their best friends, Ealy and Patton, to one another.
That in turn sparks a true love connection, and we’re treated to two – or maybe four – very different viewpoints on love, sex, relationships and the best way to disguise that you really, really don’t like someone’s cooking. Hint: have a bag ready to spit into.
Hart, who is a rising comedy lead, steals a lot of the good lines here, though Hall matches him, while Ealy and Bryant are the more laidback lovers. It remains to be seen how this will match up to the original or even the play. US audiences will find out on Valentine’s Day next year, but there’s still no sign of a UK release date yet.
