Mostly A Tease, Promises Lots, Delivers Nothing.
Verified purchase
Basically this is a waste of time as I personally have heard all to many penis jokes no matter how
sophisticated the teller tries to make the build up. There is a complete movie here, but in the end it
is quite juvenile despite pretending to be mature and adult. One star for telling a whole story with
a moral about dancing with the one who brought you in the end. That caps it as the rest is stale.
So for a movie about sexuality in relationships, The Overnight talks a lot, builds up some potential,
and then fails to deliver. I kept watching that the next corner would let is step into something
rewarding for having to put up with really awkward penis jokes just like in junior high school. Sadly,
The Overnight does not deliver and brings me back to the old adage that those who talk or brag the
most, especially about sex, are probably getting the least. This movie talked a lot, but just did not
get to be a good movie in spite of a happy ending. A just slightly below average film showing tons
of immaturity--until the end.

Great Movie!

Great movie that had a unique storyline and excellent direction and acting...particularly when you are bit tipsy and trying to sort out this surreal Coronavirus reality...

Sexy romp, witty, not for kids.
Verified purchase
This takes place pretty much all in one long evening, and it reminded me of who’s afraid of Virginia Woolf in the intensity of two couples gradually peeling the layers of the onion back to reveal who they really are, and in this case they end up good friends. There is a bit of sex, nudity and concepts and language that would not make sense to young viewers or conservative adults.

We Are More Than What We Label Ourselves
Verified purchase
Very good acting and the premise of the story was promising. We hope to know ourselves by applying this or that label that keeps us in discrete boxes which most of us stay most of our lives. This movie has the moxie to explore what's underneath those boxes. Sadly, it closed the box real quickly after peaking underneath, retreating back to safety, conventionality. Maybe, this movie, suggests, there's too steep a price we pay for opening Pandora's Box.

Self-Indulgent Waste of Time
Verified purchase
Self-Indulgent Waste of Time. This movie exposes private and personal acts that are mature audience material, even though there are children in the scene. The lead actor and his family member made this movie, so it seems they wanted us to see this actor do these private things on camera for the first time. However, we already imagined that he was doing these things. Too much, too late. Watching this movie is a waste of time.

if you dig what Mark and Jay are laying down then you'll enjoy 'The Overnight
Verified purchase
Typical Duplass brothers mumblecore film. If you've seen their HBO series 'Togetherness' then you're already familiar with their themes: infidelity, awkward sexual situations, young professionals with kids who are in 'rocky' relationships. Some of the dialogue seems lifted almost verbatim from the TV series and their film 'The One I Love'. Having said this, if you dig what Mark and Jay are laying down then you'll enjoy 'The Overnight.' Adam Scott does a great Mark Duplass impression and Jason Schwartzman has some of the best lines of the film. Judith Godreche was great but wasn't cast well as the wife of Schwartzman's character. Taylor Schilling was serviceable. There are some surprising plot twists and some laugh out loud moments but ultimately an slightly above average indie film. I was grateful for it's 1:18 run time which is exactly what this type of comedy should have.

Don't forget you have children
Verified purchase
What a strange movie. Movies today want to shock you and this is one of those. It isn't funny. A light movie with a lot of heaviness thrown in,too. The characters are all lovable. Four adults with two little boys. When Jason plays a lullaby on the piano, the children fall asleep.

crazy sexy cool
Verified purchase
This is quirky funny a little sexy sleeper comedy about relationships. A couple who's marriage has gotten a little boring and their sex life has as well meets another couple in a park who are a little odd and outspoken and after a dinner invite is extended the movie goes into full throttle. This is so good and smart and funny and yes a little erotic with spot on performances from all four players involved. This little gem kind of flew under the radar upon release but am glad i found it on here.
