Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good a feel-good movie - in the best sense - with subversive commentary woven into it, so subtly at times you might miss some of it. "Late Night" has a lot to say... "Late Night" comes directly from Kaling's own experiences. This is an earnest and funny comedy, with very sharp teeth.

USA Today Full Review
Good ...doesn't go for cheap laughs, but instead wields incisive barbs to successfully make its point. ...while the movie is super-topical...it's razor-sharp satire doesn't go full throttle in taking the toxic culture to task and leans more predictable than biting in the end.

NY Post Full Review
Good Kaling's script addresses issues such as sexism in the #MeToo era, ageism and racial prejudice in her disarmingly light and sneaky way. Kaling and Thompson, for the most part, embody the personas you know and love them for.

The Guardian Full Review
Very Good ...warm and witty comedy... At heart, Late Night is a romcom and, like so many romcoms, the funny stuff recedes after the first act, as the plot and its relatability imperative gets into gear.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Legendary talk-show host Katherine Newberry (Oscar winner Emma Thompson) is a pioneer in her field. The only woman ever to have a long-running program on late night, she keeps her writers' room on a short leash - and all male. But when her ratings plummet and she is accused of being a "woman who hates women," Katherine puts gender equality on her to-do list and impulsively hires Molly Patel (Mindy Kaling), a chemical plant efficiency expert from suburban Pennsylvania, as the first and only female on her writing staff.

With rumors swirling that Katherine is being replaced by a younger, hipper male host, she demands that the writers make her funny and relevant again. A lifelong fan, Molly is determined to prove she's not just a diversity hire, but the one person who can turn her idol's career around. Going against everything Katherine has staked her reputation on, she urges her to make the show more contemporary, authentic and personal, a move that could make Molly's career - or send her back to the chemical plant for good.
