One heck of a Night out .
26 August 2011 | by ronin-bishopSee all my reviews

I found Night Club, at first, a little slow in developing.However, once Ernest Borgnine appeared on screen, the movie took on a spellbinding appeal. The three young actors, playing USC students, gave convincing as well as possibly career changing performances. Furthermore, appearances by Sally Kellerman, Paul Sorvino, Mickey Rooney, as well as other older known actors brought not only added nostalgia, with respect to their past acting greatness, but more importantly, cemented the overall theme and genius of this film. In my opinion, I believe, this will be an Academy Award winner. As the movie poster states,"Everyone's Invited."
