Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: Kaling wrote for lead Emma Thompson, who herself began in stand-up and a television sketch show, and the actress walks a tricky line, creating an entertaining public facade, a boss-from-hell workplace persona and a thoroughly sympathetic private character.
  • Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: Mindy Kaling and Emma Thompson are stellar, bringing the sharp and witty script to life with great humor and nuance, even if its reach ultimately exceeds its grasp.
  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: The deliciously entertaining Emma Thompson and Mindy Kaling take center stage in a comedy about women in a male-dominated world. Laugh-until-you-cry and witheringly funny, often even keenly skewering.
  • Oktay Kozak @ Paste Magazine
  • Mike McGranaghan @ The Aisle Seat
    • Excerpt: Consistently funny and engagingly smart.
  • Jared Mobarak @ JaredMobarak.com
    • Excerpt: Late Night [teaches] inclusivity and diversity as a means of reinvigorating creativity. [It] falls short of [its] potential, but the good still easily outweighs the bad.
  • [New] | Jonathan Richards @ santafenewmexican.com
    • Excerpt: The queen of Late Night is Emma Thompson, whose character’s impeccable timing and dry-as-gin wit makes you wonder why she hasn’t been dominating the late-night TV talk show scene for the last quarter century. Thompson could be a dark horse contender when the Oscars come around.
