4.0 out of 5 stars A satisfying hip, dark-grey, comedy-drama
An assured, quietly quirky debut from Jake Paltrow, who has evidently pulled in an impressively strong transatlantic cast on the strength of his surname. And good on him. I actually found this DVD in the one pound bucket of a supermarket, and can only assume it didn't get the distribution it deserves due to shoddy marketing and its resistance to being easily pigeonholed...

1.0 out of 5 stars It put me to sleep!
'The Good Night' is about a guy named Gary (Martin Freeman) who used to be in a band and is now making music for TV ads. His relationship with his girlfriend (Gwyneth Paltrow) is going down the drain and the only thing he has that makes him happy in his life is his dreams about a beautiful woman (Penelope Cruz) every night.

I'd read some pretty bad reviews of...

1.0 out of 5 stars Extremely poor outing from actors who should know better, 31 May 2008
This review is from: The Good Night [DVD] (DVD)
Shame on you Jake Paltrow.

Shame, shame, shame.

The worst film I have ever seen. That is no exaggeration and I have seen some god awful films in my time. The only thing worse than an unfunny joke is an obvious unfunny joke, and this film has some crackers. Whether it's Simon Pegg taking the piss out of the English doorman, Danny DeVito having an array of different jobs or Martin Freeman's "hilarious" indifference to life. That Gwyneth Paltrow, Simon Pegg, Martin Freeman and Danny DeVito agreed to do this film is shocking, as the writing is quite clearly as poor as the directing. There is minimal character development besides Freeman's indifferent, arrogant nature, Pegg's filandering and DeVito's "Zany-ness" and the film jumps so haphazardly between conversations and scenes that you lose interest just as soon as the film begins. When we watched this film (again no lie or exaggeration) I counted 3 minutes and 29 seconds when we lost all interest. I wonder whether the cast were duped into doing this piece by the fact that Jake Paltrow (you'll be surprised to learn) is Gwyneth's brother. If so, shame also on Gwyneth Paltrow for allowing her brother to dent not only her career, but Pegg, Freeman and DeVito's as well, not to mention humiliating her brother by allowing him to relase such a poor, badly written and badly directed piece. You should all know better.

I gave this one star as that is the lowest you can give but personally, I would give it none if I had the choice.
