Leah Vaughn (Sanaa Lathan) discovers this when she finally leaves Dave (Morris Chestnut), her long-term boyfriend, because he isn't ready to commit to the idea of children. Dating begins, and she soon meets Carter Duncan (Morris Chestnut) who seems like the perfect man for her. But when she accidentally discovers his darker side, she does her best to get away from him, only to find herself pursued by a very dangerous suiter.

'About Last Night' has received largely positive reviews following its release in the US on Valentine's Day.
About Last Night has received a number of positive reviews followings its US release yesterday (14th February).

'About Last Night' is worth your hard-earned cash this weekend.
Of course, it's the same every year. On the weekend of February 14, you'll stroll into the cinema and - oh look! - alongside the regular blockbusters are a bunch of romantic-comedies that have had little to no promotion. On the most romantic of weekends, the studios simply don't need to spend millions on marketing. Cinemagoers want something stress-free, something funny, something romantic. About Last Night is one of those movies.
'About Last Night' Stars Kevin Hart [L] and Regina Hall [R]
A modern reimagining of the classic play from David Mamet, and a remake of the 1986 movie with Rob Lowe and Demi Moore, this new movie stars Kevin Hart, Regina Hall, Michael Ealy and Joy Bryant as couples searching for love.

Bernie is your average party guy who enjoys picking up ladies for one-night-stands. After meeting Joan, he’s tells his friend Danny all about his night of passion and, as he gets to know her, decides that Danny also needs some loving in his life – though he finds himself much more of an introvert around women. He introduces Danny to Joan’s roommate Debbie, but when things start getting serious, Bernie starts to get a little bit jealous as he struggles to get something deep and meaningful out of his own relationship. Given that both couples started their liaison in the same way, Bernie starts to wonder why he can’t commit, while Danny starts to worry that he’s committing too soon.
‘About Last Night’ is a rom-com that deals with how relationships develop between different people in the same circumstances. Originally based on the 1974 play 'Sexual Perversity in Chicago' by David Mamet ('Hannibal', 'Ronin'), the screenplay has been adapted by Leslye Headland ('Bachelorette', 'Assistance') from another screenplay by Tim Kazurinsky ('Saturday Night Live') and Denise DeClue ('The Cherokee Kid'). Directed by BAFTA nominated Steve Pink ('Hot Tub Time Machine', 'Accepted'), it is set for UK release on March 21st 2014.
An almost ridiculously strong cast and a witty script by the writer of Crazy Stupid Love make this silly film a lot more entertaining than it should be. As it playfully explores long friendships and the struggles of ageing, it turns into a four-sided bromance. So even if the film feels a little under-powered, it's still thoroughly charming.
At the centre are four lifelong buddies who are determined not to grow old. Paddy (De Niro) is trying to recover from grief over his wife's death, while Archie (Freeman) is tired of being fussed over by his son (Ealy) and Sam (Kline) hates living in a retirement community with his spirited wife (Gleason). So they jump on the chance to travel to Vegas for a stag weekend for their pal Billy (Douglas), who is marrying a woman (Blair) in her 30s. And getting together sparks their youthful sense of mischief as they plan a lavish party. Especially when two of them begin to fall for lounge singer Diana (Steenburgen).
Having five Oscar winners in the lead roles gives considerable oomph to the whole project, as these seasoned veterans bring out engaging details of their characters. Douglas has the safest role as a hapless lover-boy, while De Niro does the emotional heavy lifting and Kline endures the cheapest jokes (because his wife has given him a "free pass" for the weekend). Meanwhile, Freeman is clearly having the most fun: cool and relaxed with a naughty glint in his eye. And Steenburgen provides some badly needed female feistiness.

The latest series from JH Wyman has won some critical acclaim already, but some still need convincing
Almost Human is the latest series from Fringe creator JH Wyman, working under Jj Abrams' Bad Robot banner and airing on Fox last night (17 Nov.). Set 35 years in the future, in a world where police officers are partnered with human-like androids, the show stars Karl Urban and Michael Ealy as they combat a crime-filled Los Angeles in a show that has already shown some early promise, a handful of critics agree.
Karl Urban stars alongside Michael Ealy on Almost Human
Urban and Ealy, starring as Detective John Kennex and the DRN model android Dorian respectively, are the show's odd couple and central characters and despite their differences, by the end of the series premiere alone it becomes pretty clear that they make a formidable pair. They are just two parts of a pretty wicked ensemble cast that also includes Joe Smith, Mackenzie Crook, Lili Taylor and Minka Kelly, but in spite of all the big names, Almost Human is still struggling to win everyone over with its first episode.
