Up All Night: 9 of the Longest Nights in Movies

Relativity Relativity

We're all about having a little evening fun here at NextMovie, so long as we're able to get to bed at a reasonable hour. That's not too much to ask, right? We just want to be able to get a little bit of beauty rest before the next day begins.

That's why we have a great deal of respect for the characters of the following nine films - even if, you know, they're in movies and they're not real, and the movies were almost definitely filmed over the course of weeks instead of just one night.

But it's still real to us, dammit! In honor of new long-night-club inductee "21 and Over," here are nine of the longest nights in movies. Get More »

Marvel Studios

The debut of "Home Alone" director Chris Columbus was another entry in the "teen's getting into mischief while their parents are away and fixing everything moments before they get back home" genre, which also included "Ferris Bueller" and "Risky Business."

In the movie, Elisabeth Shue played a 17-year-old babysitter who goes on a madcap journey through the seedy underbelly of Chicago with her three underage charges. At one point they come to get their car from Dawson's Garage, and discover Dawson looks exactly like comicdom's Thor (and may actually be him).

As we anticipate the coming release of the big-budget feature adaptation of "Thor," we thought it might be good to weigh the pros-and-cons of both Asgardians and see who comes out on top. Get More »
