The Allnighter is well known for the famous scene in which Susanna Hoffs slowly dances in front of a mirror in her underwear to the tune of the classic Aretha Franklin hit "Respect". The movie was meant as a vehicle for The Bangles lead singer, Susanna Hoffs, and was written and directed by her mother. Instead, the film bombed, and led Hoffs to abandon pursuit of a film career.
Molly (Hoffs), Val (Pfeiffer) and Gina (Cusack) are graduating college, but on their final night, frustrations are aired. Molly is still looking for real love and Val is beginning to doubt if that is what she has found. Gina is too busy videotaping everything to really notice. When the final party at Pacifica College kicks off, things do not go exactly as planned.
