IndieWire - Kate Erbland
Late Night smartly sends up not just the cloistered world of late night television, but a current cultural climate struggling to evolve in a changing world.

New York Magazine (Vulture) - Emily Yoshida
What makes Late Night — otherwise a largely predictable story in a familiar mold — really pop is Kaling’s script, which is at the blunter and frankly more exciting spectrum of what Kaling has proven herself to be capable of in her writing career thus far.

Screen International - Anthony Kaufman
Thompson delivers a memorable performance as the abrasive “cold witch,” as someone describes her, perhaps even outdoing Meryl Streep’s Miranda Priestly in The Devil Wars Prada as a delightfully wicked woman of power.

Uproxx - Mike Ryan
Late Night is going to wind up being one of the best comedies of 2019.

The Playlist - Gregory Ellwood
The combination of Thompson’s sharp delivery and Kaling’s commercially friendly script make the film’s charms hard to resist.

Late Night (2019)
