"There’s such a thing as trying too hard, and with The Night Before I thought what would be cooler than just showing up and being with my friends, making each other laugh and having a blast, which is exactly what that movie is." Thus spake Joseph Gordon-Levitt in September's Playboy, and that's as good a quote for the movie's poster as any: Nobody in The Night Before tries too hard, and the movie mostly does consist of Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen, and Anthony Mackie having a blast. Those two facts alone make it a welcome break from November's usual batch of self-satisfied, self-serious Oscar bait. The plot, such as it is, consists of three dumbasses running around New York on Christmas Eve and doing "every drug in the whole world." But be warned: The Night Before has a few legitimately sad, legitimately sweet moments. Right alongside all the drugs and musical numbers is a subtly melancholy heart. Indeed, The Night Before might be the only Christmas movie that offers both a whole lot of dick pics and the sad, lonely sense of desperation that defines the holidays. But then Seth Rogen throws up all over a midnight mass, and all is right with the world (101 min.).
