      Critics Consensus

      Witty and unpredictable, The Overnight benefits from writer-director Patrick Brice's sure-handed touch and strong performances from a talented cast.

      Jeff M Where do I begin? I've been marinating with this film for almost 24 hours. Being nearly 50 years old, nothing much surprises me anymore when I watch a movie. But this is the exception that proves the rule. Throughout the extremely short 79 minute running time, I progressed from "they wouldn't go there, would they?" to "are they actually going there?" to "OMG, they went there!". This puts outrageous comedies like THE HANGOVER to shame, and hats off to everyone involved for having the "cajones" to let it all hang out. Literally. This is not for the easily offended - let's just put that out there right now. All four actors are extremely appealing and, dare I say, brave. It's not a movie that made me laugh out loud a lot, to be quite frank, but I was consistently amused and tickled by the situations and the predicaments in which these characters find themselves. And, if you dig a little deep, there's actually quite a bit this movie has to say about subjects such as adult friendship and the limits we place upon ourselves. I don't want to make this sound more profound than it is, but it actually got me thinking quite a bit. And let me reiterate, this is not for the easily offended. I'm shocked this got by with an "R" rating. Enter at your own risk, but you might not feel as guilty as you expect once it's over. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/10/24 Full Review Audience Member Doesn't really take off as a semi-raunchy comedy but it's often an unpredictable 90 minute feature with a crazy all-nighter type of script. The performances and characterization are definitely the strongest assets here. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 12/22/23 Full Review susan j Not as "odd" as reviewers have said. It's definitely a one-of-a-kind movie, if you can even call it a movie--it's only 1 hour and 15 minutes long. It's basically just one weird night where 2 couples in their late 20s/early 30s who've recently met get exceedingly drunk and stoned--while their 2 little kids are conked out asleep in the house after they've all had a pizza dinner--and end up talking on their patio, in the pool, in the hot tub, in Jason Schwartmann's basement artist's studio (where apparently he photographs people's bungholes and later creates paintings based on the photos and also evidently where he and his wife shoot pseudo-porn films), and in the wife's private bedroom. It's mostly not laugh out loud funny, but it's bemusing. If you've ever experienced a weird time with people you developed a fast friendship with---whether it ended up being super fun or going South--you'll appreciate this. It's sort of a stoner film in that you and the main couple characters aren't sure exactly what's going on. Are their new friends total pervy weirdos? Are they just stoned and imagining it? Maybe this is the way people in California are (the main couple, who just moved to California, considers this might be a possibility) and maybe the people whose house they're at are the "normal" ones for California....and maybe the main couple is just uptight? Are the things Jason Schwartzmann's huge dick character saying innocuous? simply really direct and friendly? open-minded and progressive? playful, flirtatious...? I found it quite entertaining. Definitely original little film. And it was funny in its way. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Interesting premise, but it's more weird than it is funny. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member The Overnight doesn't overstay its welcome. It's a brisk hour and 15 and is better off in its brevity. While it does have something to say about fledgling adult sex lives, the intended comedy that plays off of the premise is only marginally funny and there isn't enough dramatic development to firmly place this as an effective dramedy.'s fine. Unaffecting in most ways outside of those fake dicks and some squirminess. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Really good watch, could watch again, and can recommend (at least for the sexually open minded.) This movie focuses less on young rampant sex and more of the decline that people sometimes get as they get older and want to be more adventurous without destroying their relationships. It also doesn't treat it as ridiculous a thing, while still openly admitting that it is something foreign and strange. The movie does a great job of leading the audience (alongside the main character couple) into this strange new world, not of debauchery, but love and connection. Given that the premise of the movie is them getting together, it's not a spoiler, but this is a romantic comedy for couples, basically. There is plenty funny to this movie, but if you're not into sex-based comedy, then this isn't for you. If you liked "A Good Old Fashioned Orgy", then you should give this a watch.

      Jess Kibler Bitch Media What does feel unique about The Overnight is the way it shows two different married couples opening up about modern sexuality, fidelity, and their desires, all of which are addressed here within their marriages and outside of them. Jan 28, 2021 Full Review Jason Bailey Flavorwire A cross between 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf' and 'Score,' the eyebrow-raising sexual possibilities complimented by real considerations of martial desire and "curiosity." May 30, 2016 Full Review Tom Long Detroit News Brice goes a bit too broad at times, but he keeps things just funny and edgy and open enough for "The Overnight" to work. Rated: B Jul 3, 2015 Full Review Josh Slater-Williams Vague Visages Despite flirting with some greater depths regarding marital woes, The Overnight ultimately works better as just a solid comedy with a proclivity for the bizarre; Nov 15, 2023 Full Review Kip Mooney Central Track Plenty of raunchy flicks have shown dicks before, but this one's actually got some balls. Rated: B+ Aug 10, 2021 Full Review Richard Crouse Richard Crouse A smart, insightful but most of all, very uncomfortable film. Rated: 3.5/5 Feb 3, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews
