The delicious Italian accent of gorgeous Maria Grazia Cucinotta and the flourish of Udo Kier's German accent alone are worth the price of admission. Some whimsical animations knit the scenes together, quite in tune with the offbeat comedy. I've enjoyed watching this several times.
Romantic, sexy, original, flawlessly produced comedy.

"Just One Night is a romantic, lively, sexy, original, flawlessly produced and directed comedy set in San Francisco where, one night before his wedding, Isaac Alder (Timothy Hutton) is in a cab that collides with Aurora (Maria Grazia Cuicinotta), a beautiful married woman. There accidentally meeting results in love at first sight and a 24 hour wild ride through glittering San Francisco and a memorable exploration of two people on the meaning and nature of love. Highly recommended viewing!"
A romantic movie for everyone

"Guys always seem to face a relationship hurdle, the movie to watch with the girlfriend(boyfriend). There aren't many movies out there that a couple can always enjoy together. Some women just can't take another viewing of Ronin or Get Carter (please find me one who can). This movie makes being a boyfriend movie viewer easy. Its witty, its funny, its well done, and at times it makes that single soap-opera tear very real. As you watch the series of events unfold, you just can't help but feel like you were Isaac, or Aurora. You feel for the characters and you feel for some reason, you start to feel for yourself. A must for any romantic at heart. A must for anyone who's a fan of good movies. A must for anyone who can't find a good DVD to watch in the dark as you cry over a lost soul. In general, a must."
A real gem among romantic comedies

"Despite being a romantic comedy, this is not your average chick flick. It is free of the saccharin sentimentality that makes many such movies unpalatable to most men (and to me.) Quirky and surprising, this movie will make you cackle with laughter if you are willing to immerse yourself, even momentarily, in its magic fate-driven atmosphere. This has a beautiful, old-fashioned feel to it, in the vein of "Breakfast at Tiffany's"--sweet but edgy. Though the characters are somewhat lacking in depth, they are not in charm. Timothy Hutton is quite yummy as the brainy and ironic professor, and Maria Grazia is both charismatic and unfairly sexy. Skip the big-budget Hollywood dross and indulge in this understated and memorable treat."
