Review by Stephen M.

1 Night is a romantic drama telling the story of two couples simultaneously at different stages of their relationship and life.  The four main actors/actresses individually each are amazingly talented.  But the film as a whole while you kind of get what they are trying to do, just fails to keep your constant attention for the 1 hour and 20 mins.  Anna Camp better known for Pitch Perfect and Isabelle Fuhrman in Orphan are equally matched by Justin Chatwin (Dragonball Evolution, yes, that movie) and newcomer Kyle Allen.



Incredibly slow pacing with weak chemistry between the couples makes the film a tedious watch.  The long drawn out character building and self discovery could have been condensed tremendously.  Despite all of this, it's still a pleasure to watch each of the actors/actresses perform at their high level making this watchable.

Overall, I would recommend watching this only if you are a fan of any of the actors listed in the cast.  For a better romantic drama try "Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong" starring real life husband and wife Jamie Chung and Bryan Greenberg.  The chemistry as a real life couple is naturally there and with much more engaging and intriguing dialogue.

Rating: 2 1/2 out of 5 Stars
