Review : The Night Before


“On Christmas eve, three lifelong friends, two of whom are Jewish, spend the night in New York City looking for the Holy Grail of Christmas parties.”

This is one of those movies, that can easily go either way depending on the kind of comedies you like. This movie does prescribe to a particular kind of humour, as one might expect looking at the cast it does have, and that really is most of what will make or break this movie. There is a good bit of graphic humour, and use of nudity, but for the most part i though it fit. Also like a few previous Seth Rogen movies, its not all jokes all the way through, there is a great attempt here to have a story and emotional hooks, that for the most part do work and pay off. The jokes when they do come are mostly good, with a good sprinkling of really great laugh out loud moments that you never see coming. There is also a role in this movie, that could be considered an extended cameo, that is really some of the funniest stuff this movie bring to the audience. This is also a pretty solid movie as a whole, and that helps it a lot when it’s not slinging the jokes. If you’re a fan of the kind of movies you are accustomed to from the talent involved here, you will have a great time with this movie.

Review Score : 7.5 out of 10
