    Smart, playful, and hilarious, The Overnight is a delightful romp between the sheets.

  • Gregory Ellwood

    Much of the success of the film is due to the four leads who seamlessly work the one or two outrageous moments into the story without resorting to over-the-top characterizations.

  • Eric Kohn

    Even though the story involves legitimate issues surrounding sexual identity and the boundaries of monogamy, its humor only goes surface deep. For the most part, the endearingly silly plot amounts to little more than sight gags and off-the-wall asides.

  • David Rooney

    There’s a breezy spirit and an agreeable touch of tenderness to the movie that makes it hard not to like, even if it never accumulates much substance.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Geoff Berkshire

    The Overnight invites the audience to keep guessing exactly who is seducing whom, and exactly where the temptations will lead, right up to its final few beats. Barely hitting 70 minutes before the credit crawl, this comedy successfully achieves a climax of its own that is equal parts exciting and frustrating.

  • Richard Roeper

    This is one terrifically twisted parental play date.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Ian Freer

    Excruciatingly hilarious and hilariously excruciating. The merkin scene will live with you forever.

    Empire Full Review
  • Jeff Baker

    Writer-director Patrick Brice is interested only in his male characters; Alex and Kurt work out their issues while their wives serve as support or comic foils. The laughs stop about halfway through, and the 79-minute running time feels about right.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    Brice stops his story just before it becomes redundant – most filmmakers these days can’t say that – and although I didn’t believe the outrageous next-to-last scene, he caps it with a laugh-out-loud joke.

  • Christy Lemire

    See it with someone you love, and then just try to feel smug about the security of your own relationship afterward. Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    The pleasure of the movie lies in the way it both rewards and subverts expectations, delivering on the risqué possibilities of its premise while also coming up with something smarter and a little deeper than a log line might suggest.

  • Sara Stewart

    Schwartzman is perfect as Kurt, simultaneously compelling, ridiculous and creepy.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Brice, who made an impressive thriller debut with 2014's "Creep," has a knack for getting the most out of four people talking.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    It's a short film, weighing in at 79 minutes, but that feels about right. You probably wouldn't want to spend a lot more time with these folks, no matter how intriguing their company. You won't necessarily enjoy the visit, not all of it. But you won't be bored, and for grown-ups with kids looking for a night out, that's something.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    The actors manage to show crack comic timing while looking as if they’re groping along blindly — a high compliment for psychodrama.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Gary Goldstein

    This engaging, funny and frank new film also proves something of a cop-out, especially given the bullet train of a narrative concocted by writer-director Patrick Brice.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    It takes discipline in this age of bloat to bring your movie in under 80 minutes, closing credits included, and still make the audience feel we’ve been taken on a genuine journey with these people, a few big laughs and jagged left turns included. Full Review
  • Danny King

    Though an accomplished farce, The Overnight is most interesting when confronting its genuine emotional stakes.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Mike D'Angelo

    It’s an unusual but surprisingly effective mix of outrageousness and sincerity, in which the four anxious revelers somehow function both as broad caricatures and as real, complex human beings.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Will they, won't they? A bolder movie wouldn't settle for maybe.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    The Overnight plays like the pilot of a sitcom developed for Netflix or premium cable. A hit-and-miss affair that deals in a sporadically amusing fashion with many of the mundane (and a few not-so-mundane) tribulations of long-term monogamy in marriage.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    I like it up to a point — not a specific story point, but to a certain degree throughout. It's engaging but thin, and I couldn't buy screenwriter Brice's idea of Charlotte's antidote for her 10-year itch.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    A bonbon of embarrassment comedy.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    In a way, The Overnight ends just as it’s beginning. But for a brief time, even in the midst of preposterous digressions and full (and not so full) Montys, it offers a compassionate glimpse of people at their most naked, honest and undefended.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    In the end The Overnight promises more than it can deliver: Some of the supposedly provocative material ends up being juvenile, and the movie ends just as the situation gets truly, weirdly interesting. It’s too tame a resolution to a film that suggested the capacity for more.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    The Overnight ends just as it starts to get interestingly messy, tapping into something real and sweetly touching.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Inkoo Kang

    Brice’s script boasts a few surprises, but this is essentially a highly competent film about boring people’s boring problems.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Clayton Dillard

    The film's Buñuelian potential for harpooning the bourgeoisie is quickly dashed in favor of mumblecore antics.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    Unfortunately, Brice appears more interested in ramping up the outrageousness and keeping his audiences guessing than in crafting a meaningful story. And so while his film is nothing if not unpredictable, that comes at the cost of the sort of emotional impact for which his film seems to be aiming.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Steve Davis

    In the end, the preordained ménage à quatre that culminates the evening’s funny games titillates neither mentally nor erotically. Without any such catharsis, the whole thing feels like a big tease. No doubt what The Overnight could use at this point is another happy ending.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • David Ehrlich

    The result is a throwaway trifle that plays like it came together over the course of a slaphappy weekend, and while size may not matter (the movie runs a short 79 minutes), it’s not even relevant to something this flaccid.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    A farce that dabbles in darkness. True confessions here, sexual mores tested there. We see where this is going long before it gets there, and in a short movie, that can be fatal.
