Critics reviews

There is the sense that C.K., a writer for the likes of Dana Carvey and Conan O’Brien, has seized the opportunity to run rampant with his strangest and most precious ideas, ideas that are antithetical to network television. The film’s humor harps exclusively on the same desperation and stupidity that fuel the more primal moments in Louie, albeit stripped of that show’s emotional stakes. There’s humor to be found here, but it can be wearying at feature length.

[Tomorrow Night] isn’t totally terrible, and even the terrible parts are fueled by an eerie commitment, as if the filmmaker is working through personal demons he couldn’t explain even if he wanted to. But all in all, it’s hard to consider this ensemble comedy about an emotionally constipated photo developer (Chuck Sklar) as anything but a curiosity: a film that Louis C.K. made while he was figuring out how to be Louis C.K.

Set in Pittsburgh but shot in New York, the film plays like an ancient, primitive dry run to Louie, with a fraction of the laughs and maybe twice the degree of self-conscious awkwardness. The acting is wildly uneven, leaning toward amateurish, and the pacing is frequently sluggish. But for those already convinced of C.K.’s genius, this unearthed relic has archaeological value; it reveals a heretofore missing link in the evolution of his DIY sensibilities.
