In About Last Night, four Los Angeles singles get a thorough workout in the ups and downs of today's dating world. On yet another night of playing wingman to his loud-mouthed best friend Bernie (Hart), kind-eyed Danny (Ealy) meets Debbie (Bryant), a beautiful, smart, and successful woman who is a bit skittish about relationships, as he is. When the chemistry proves to be undeniable, they end up falling into bed together that night... then another night, and another night. What these starry-eyed lovers soon find is that despite their good intentions and genuine feelings for each other, what started out as a casual and intoxicating intimacy quickly falls prey to the usual trappings of togetherness and monogamy. Based upon Sexual Perversity In Chicago by David Mamet. (Gary Reber)

Special features include four featurettes: An Un-Romantic Comedy (HD 14:38), About Last Night Advice (HD 03:53), I Love HD You? (HD 05:39), and Word On The Street (HD 09:04); and upfront previews.

The 2.40:1 1080p AVC picture was photographed digitally with the Sony CineAlta F65 camera system. The color palette is richly hued and saturated and exhibits a vibrant color picture. Colors pop with strong primaries and rich hues. Fleshtones are perfectly natural throughout. Contrast is excellent, with deep blacks and revealing shadow delineation, with lighting highlights that add vibrancy. Resolution is effectively detailed, especially during closeups of facial features, hair, clothing, and object textures. This is a great-looking picture that is warmly visual, crisp, and colorful. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel soundtrack is frontal focused, with a diversified music track that is well recorded. Dialogue is generally well integrated spatially. Atmospherics and sound effects are supportive and enhance the club scenes. Surround is generally subdued. Deep bass is present but limited to selected music segments. Overall, this is a competent soundtrack that supports the story trappings of an evolving romance. (Gary Reber)
