About Last Night . . . has little to do with perversity, let alone Sexual Perversity in Chicago, the David Mamet play on which it ostensibly is based. Film lacks much of Mamet’s grittiness, but is likable in its own right.

Film presents a look at the mating habits of young Americans, the ones who frequent singles bars and regard commitment as a lifelong disease.

Focus of the story is on Danny (Rob Lowe) and Debbie (Demi Moore) who meet, move in together, separate and get back together with an ease and casualness that makes it both appealing and disturbing. Ups and downs of the relationship are delivered in a series of montages that look like soft-drink commercials for the now generation.

As the sour note, James Belushi is probably the high point of the film. Performance borrows much from his late brother (John) in its outrageousness and unpredictability.
