    Loved it. Had me laughing out loud, it felt relevant, had a lot of heart. Emma Thompson was incredible and Mindy Kaling was as earnestly adorable as ever.

    It was an okay movie and Emma Thompson was spectacular as always however I wished the movie was better because she deserves to be only in the best of the best movies. It was quite ordinary for her brilliance.

    Honestly surprised that it was good, I didn't go in thinking it would be that great but it was enjoyable and smart. :)

    Emma Thompson is the real strength of Late Night, and carries the more cliché elements of the studio comedy disguised as a independent film the a higher level. Nice and sweet, but nothing revolutionary to stick by you.

    Wasn't that funny given the comical nature of the central narrative. Certain ideologies were thinly veiled and clumsily handled without much depth or nuance.

    It brings together the way I see the world with the way the world see the world. Its this amazingly accurate representation of poc's in the work place but also the benefit of having more "diversity hires." The status quo doesn't change, not even when the world changes and that's the problem... the world changed and we have to be brave enough to change with it.

    Bereft of laughs, social commentary done with a sledgehammer and Mindy Kaling's dull performance this movie lost me before the halfway mark. Saving grace: Emma Thompson.

    Why nowhere... While attempting to cram is social justice worldview down your throat. It's a message made into a movie and but a very good one. If they tried half as hard to be funny or even entertaining as they did to get their point across it would have been even a little funny or a bit entertaining. They didn't and it wasn't.

    Late Night (2.5 out of 5 stars). Late Night fails to deliver as a comedy drama film with the lack of laughs, boring story, and direction. The plot follows a late night talk show host Katherine (Emma Thompson) which her show ratings are declining and the studio is planning on replacing her with another comedian. Her staff hires Molly (Mindy Kaling) which she has never had work experience in a show before. Which she helps in the writer's room on building jokes and humor for Katherine. The story is boring and forgettable. About a talk show host Katherine who is so hard on everyone. She is always firing someone and never giving any breaks. She is an unlikable person which her and Molly test each other patience. The plot can be predictable. The direction and script are also boring. It has a few small humor. But you will be spending most of the movie barely even laughing. The humor is flat out boring. The cast is decent. Emma Thompson was good playing a difficult unlikable talk show host. Mindy Kaling plays a loner character which she is trying to find a successful career. Overall, Late Night is a bad film. It is boring and has a forgettable story that is easily forgotten once it is over.

    Emma Thompson is an amazing actress who could sell reading the phone back. If she wasn't such a powerhouse in this film there would be very little. The script was very predictable and safe. The young writer becomes the power house writer of a long standing successful show, please! Too weak.
