ALL NIGHTER (2017): The Thing I Liked…

What I liked most about All Nighter is Xosha Roquemore’s version of a drunk party girl. Director Gavin Wiesen’s, story about a workaholic father (J.K. Simmons) who teams up with his daughter’s awkward ex-boyfriend (Emile Hirsch) to find her is not as fun and entertaining as the films trailer led me to believe.

One of my early thoughts as I watched was ‘This is going nowhere fast.’ A thought soon followed by, ‘All the acting isn’t bad but this film is boring’. Reason being, All Nighter just plods along in a manner that had me failing to care about the whereabouts of the missing daughter (Analeigh Tipton). What made the experience even more underwhelming overall is the easy and relatively obvious explanation for the daughter’s whereabouts.

In conclusion, if you were thinking that All Nighter might be a boys adventure with a splash of the The Hangover (2009) vibe; it’s barely that. More than anything, the film is really about a workaholic father’s friendship with his daughter’s ex-boyfriend. If there’s nothing better on and you’re in the mood for an awkward comedy with very few good laughs, then sure, watch it. Otherwise step away, friend.

All Nighter is a new comedy starring J.K. Simmons, Emile Hirsch and Analeigh Tipton.

Directed by Gavin Wiesen, at the centre of the story is a workaholic father who teams up with his daughter’s awkward ex-boyfriend to try and find her…

Generally, I enjoy Simmons in comedy roles. Though this trailer only has me a little intrigued, My fingers are crossed in hopes that I’ll find Simmons as funny as I did in I Love You, Man (2009), if not more so, of course.
