About Last Night remake gains a trailer
Remember About Last Night with Rob Lowe, Demi Moore, James Belushi and Elizabeth Perkins? The film based on the David Mamet stage play Sexual Perversity in Chicago which was quite controversial when it was first seen was a funny and engaging film.
So when the remake was announced I wasn't sure how they could top it, but they could surely update it and bring it into a modern setting, although saying that there's nothing dated about the relationships between men and women shown in the original.
Now that the trailer is here for the comparisons to be made and I have to say it's looking very disappointing.
Steve Pink directs the film that Leslye Headland has adapted from the David Mamet play and it stars Kevin Hart, Michael Ealy, Regina Hall and Adam Rodriguez. Here's the blurb for the new version of About Last Night:
A modern re-imagining of the classic romantic comedy, this contemporary version closely follows new love for two couples as they journey from the bar to the bedroom and are eventually put to the test in the real world.
A modern re-imagining - I guess that does explain the soulless sex we're seeing throughout the trailer without any real attempt at a heart to the story or a connection with the characters. Here's the trailer through TrailerAddict so you can make up your own mind:
