4.0 out of 5 stars Charming Romantic Comedy September 23, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
This is a really funny, feel good movie with a happy ending. Lori Loughlin's character loses a bet with friends and has to take nerdy Winston Connelly (Keanu Reeves) as her prom date. Through a chain of events -- including getting lost, a broken down car, a bar in a bad neighborhood, a pimp, and the girl's policeman father -- they NEVER reach the prom at all. Winston proves to be a hero instead of a nerd and earns Lori's character's devotion by the end. Keanu Reeves is charming and not the airhead character he protrayed many times in his early career. He and Lori Loughlin have a nice chemistry.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just Another Teen Movie? September 13, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
It is known to many, that to find a good teen movie, you must look further than the video shelves of your local Video Hire. Sure, there is 'Pretty In Pink', 'The Breakfast Club' and more recently 'Get Over It', but they all rely on the love triangle's to boost thier plot. 'The Night Before' is different, not only in the conventional, but the unconventional. Creating laughs from the twisted love match of Reeves & Loughlin, the seedy going-ons that run the streets at night, to slapstick escapades that adorn the closing sequences. This is a must for any lover of films, or the Weird and Wonderful that fill studio backlists to the brim. Deleted in the UK, buy quick from America, a minor masterpiece of Hollywood legends.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Comedy Lacking Widescreen May 22, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Originally I got this great 80's comedy from an HD rip online, but this is just as good and with a decent cover. Sadly, like all of the "Lost Collection" series, it is in full screen and has a fake 5.1 soundtrack. For those who want to know, all of the "Lost Collection" films are supposed to be in 5.1 Dolby Digital audio. This is not true. Every channel sounds the same as track 3, which is all of the music, dialog and special effects mixed together. A perfect 5.1 DVD has music in the first channel, sound effects with some dialog in the second, everything mixed together in the third, track 4 is base, and the last two channels are for rear sounds, sometimes containing a clearer isolated music track. None of the "Lost Collection" discs are like this, making them fake 5.1 audio and that really hurts my view of Lionsgate. "The Night Before" is still a must-have comedy, but don't look for awesome sound or anamorphic widescreen.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lots of Digital Noise on the picture March 19, 2010
By dvd dj
I watched this dvd on my lcd flat panel , and the picture is full of what i would call 'digital noise' meaning it has lots of 'micro' pixelation, especially in darker areas of the movie. Even the VHS version of this movie is better than this. Also it seems that it was transferred not from the master tapes, but from Vhs stockpile with bad digital noise at times. But since its finally on DVD , I'll take it, but I'm not very happy with the digital noise artifacts, it makes the movie look , almost cartoonish in darker areas. I'm hoping for a second better release (though i doubt it) and hopefully a blu ray release that is done right. I don't really mind that its full screen, that doesn't bother too much. I'm more concerned with the picture quality. Also there is no trailer for this movie, but trailers for other movies. Also the case it came in is very flimsy. It has that recycle logo hole on the case. I don't know if they want you to throw it out afterwards and recycle it. But the movie itself is one of my favorites of all time.

1.0 out of 5 stars Yes, love it, but FULL SCREEN??? April 29, 2009
Can't believe some studios foist full-screen hatchet jobs this late in the game. Especially this one, was looking forward to this finally coming out.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wrong side of the tracks story November 13, 2009
Winston Connelly (Keanu Reeves) wakes up disheveled and with out any memory of what happened the night before. Evidently he was supposed to take a date (Lori Laughlin) to the prom and has misplaced her, misplaced his father's car. Now he is being told that he is to have a showdown with Tito (Trinidad Silva) on Bacon or rather Beacon Street at sunrise.

Watch for the obligatory car chase and Tara (Lori) is caught wearing an out dated tube top and a vinyl mini-skirt.

Now he must regain his memory and piece together events before sunrise. This has the feel of the movie "D.O.A."

Cheesy, but still a cute and funny 80's flick, I just had to own. Love Keanu Reeve's dance scene- still makes me giggle.
