First off, a point of trivia. How many movie remakes contain a scene in which the characters watch the original version of the movie they’re in?
Some research will be required. But this definitely happens in About Last Night, a new version of the 1986 romantic comedy. That movie, starring Rob Lowe and Jim Belushi as buddies who talk about their sex lives and Demi Moore and Elizabeth Perkins as the women who alternately love and hate them, is given a racial update here.
This time the main cast members are black, and the action (adapted from David Mamet’s play Sexual Perversity in Chicago) moves from the Windy City to Los Angeles.
