In ‘Late Night,’ Emma Thompson and Mindy Kaling deliver sparkling wit and surprising sweetness

★★★½ (out of four)

Ann Hornaday - The Washington Post

Forget national treasure: Emma Thompson could rent herself out as a national utility. In the alternately sharp-edged and generous-hearted comedy “Late Night,” she is so radiant, so utterly in command of her instruments of voice, body and facial expression that she could light up an entire urban grid with slightest suggestion of a grin. “Late Night” possesses many of the beats one would expect from a mainstream comedy: a bit of slapstick here, some well-placed pop-culture jokes there. But it’s at its best and most timely as an attempt to mine comic gold from a moment when professional meritocracy is being re-examined as a bastion of unexamined privilege and boys-club nepotism. Like “The Big Sick,” “Late Night” stages stand-up bits within the movie itself, and not every joke lands.

“Late Night” turns out to be an enormously pleasing fable about liberating oneself from the need to please. Like all comedians worth their salt, Kaling sets out to kill — but with kindness.

The Revenge-of-the-Femi-Nerds Comedy We Deserve

★★★★ (of Five Stars)

Peter Travers / Rolling Stone

Olivia Wilde’s directorial debut reinvents — and reinvigorates — the raunch-com with this hilarious, heartfelt story of two brainiacs cutting loose. 'Booksmart' changes the game and opens the genre up to greater possibilities. Directed by the actor Olivia Wilde in a smashing feature debut, this femcentric spin on Freaks and Geeksis high on girl power. Graduation day is breathing down the necks of Molly (Beanie Feldstein) and her best friend, Amy (Kaitlyn Dever). After four years of grinding at L.A.’s Crockett High, these brainiacs are about to reap Ivy League glory — Molly at Yale and Amy at Columbia. So it’s a shock to their system when the superior attitude they wear like armor is dented by the news that, guess what? The school’s 24-hour party people are also bound for the Ivys. Working from a clever script by a quartet of female writers, Wilde turns this rowdy party into comic bliss. You could write off Booksmart as a female Superbad, which starred Feldstein’s big brother, Jonah Hill. But Wilde’s film is less obsessed with sex than with female friendship in all its complexities and contradictions. All the actors get their licks in, but the movie belongs to Feldstein and Dever, who are stars in the making. 

Together with Wilde, whose touch with slapstick and nuance is equally unerring, they make Booksmart the smart choice for anyone looking for a comedy that’s outrageously entertaining and quietly revolutionary at the same time.
