About the Movie
Ethan (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), Isaac (Seth Rogen) and Chris (Anthony Mackie) have been friends since childhood, and for a decade, their yearly Christmas Eve reunion has been an annual night of debauchery and hilarity. Now that they’re entering adulthood, the tradition is coming to an end, and to make it as memorable as possible, they set out to find the Nutcracka Ball – the Holy Grail of Christmas parties.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Various people you know from television show up to give "The Night Before" a sketch-comedy, holiday-special vibe. The writing, by a whole lot of guys, is uneven, and the direction, by Jonathan Levine, is adequate.
Fresh: So what if this ramshackle farce doesn't always hit its marks. It's got the spirit. Go with it.
Fresh: A raucous and refreshing new take on the Christmas movie.
Fresh: Seth Rogen bursts with inventive exuberance in this schematic but genial holiday comedy about millennials settling down.
Truly a 5 star xmas movie
I have wrote plenty of reviews on here but never given anything five stars before until now.without getting into spoilers let me tell you why I gave it 5 stars.great cast with awesome chemistry.really good story with great pacing,awesome cameos & it was really funny without being too vulgar.I expect to watch this every year at xmas for years to come.
Seriously an amazing movie as mentioned before the cameos were perfect, very strong storyline, perfect cast with jgl and whatnot. His character in this movie was slightly similar to the character he played in 500 days of summer which I enjoyed. Lots of allusions, alittle bit of drug use(whats a seth rogen film without drugs though right?) The movie has a very touching storyline that will put anybody in the warm Christmas spirit. I 100% back this movie
I hate 12 year olds
12 year olds shouldn't review movies. It is a great movie. Don't review based on commercials
