After a chance meeting with Kurt (Jason Schwartzman) at the neighborhood park, they gladly agree to join him and his wife Charlotte (Judith Godrèche) for family pizza night at their home.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The writing is blatantly sexual but utterly unrevealing; the characters and their problems are cut to fit the airtight plot.
Fresh: "The Overnight" isn't much - in fact, it's hardly anything. For what it is, though, it's enough.
Fresh: This often ribald, ultimately thoughtful comedy of social and sexual manners may not aim particularly high, but it hits a singular mark nonetheless.
Fresh: The delivery is unorthodox. You might think you know what's coming, but then comes another curveball that catches you by surprise. You're kept guessing throughout - and it's a real kick when you're wrong yet again.
Glorious, Uncomfortable Fun
The Overnight is the thinking couple’s sex comedy — filled with genuinely awkward and giddy performances from Schwartzman, Scott and Schilling. If you loved Schwartzman in Rushmore, this is easily his second best turn as a confident, flawed character. And Adam Scott’s everyman awkwardness will have you squirming when you’re not laughing at Schilling’s horror at what’s going on around her.
Hilarious movie that will make you feel super awkward
This movie was completely unexpected and hilarious. Jason Schwartzman and Taylor Schilling were amazing and the subject matter was engaging (if not super awkward). The best comedy of the year!
This is the perfect weekend movie for couples in their 30’s and 40’s, especially those who have recently moved to a new neighborhood! The plot is completely plausible, in LA at least. Plus Jason Schwartzman makes it! Love that guy.
