Into The Night Movie Summary

Jeff Goldblum plays a depressed insomniac by the name of Ed Okin, the 80’s equivalent to Rami Malek. A kind of weird, socially awkward man with big eyes. Although the 80’s version of Elliot Alderson also works with computers, Ed at least marries.

Ed discovers his wife’s affair which compounds his sleep issues. Instead of confronting the cheating bitch about it, Ed jumps into the hatchback. He then heads off to the airport with visions of Sin City in his future. Once at the airport, Ed encounters the unusually beautiful Diana, played by Michelle Pfeiffer. Four Iranian assassins attack Diana and her would be male suitor in the airport’s garage. The assassins, who are a cross between the Three Stooges and Corporal Hudson from Aliens, are able to kill Diana’s male companion, but Diana is able to escape. She runs into Ed in his car, who quickly gets the beautiful girl out of the garage and into his heart. While they could go to the police, Diana leads Ed on tour of Los Angeles filled with Hollywood directors.

Eventually, Diana reveals the reason she can’t go to the police. You see, Diana smuggled stolen emeralds from the treasury of the Shah of Iran into the United States. She hid them in Aphrodite’s personal handbag, the vajayjay, because today’s modern woman knows her love box is one presidential handshake away from #metoo mania.
