In order to enjoy the remake of "About Last Night," you have to completely erase any trace of the original film from your memory. While that first film was a 1986 Brat Pack flick starring Rob Lowe and Demi Moore, the new iteration is a hard R-rated rom com starring Kevin Hart, Michael Ealy, Regina Hall, and Joy Bryant.

The biggest difference between the two films is time. What was considered risqué in the '80s is passé nowadays, and the new iteration ups the ante by filling the film with as many sex jokes as humanly possible. This isn't a movie to watch when the kids are awake... or even in the house.

That all said, I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy it at least a little bit. Christopher McDonald, Jo Lo Truglio, and Paula Patton are all enjoyable in supporting roles, and the film si easy to watch even if it doesn't seem to be trying very hard. I chuckled a lot, laughed a couple of times, and was generally engaged, in part because I find Michael Ealy (who takes the lead role over Kevin Hart) such an appealing actor to watch.

"About Last Night" won't replace the original or win any awards, but it's an easy way to kill 90 minutes.
