Last Night in Soho was received positively by critics at the time of its initial theatrical release, and currently holds a certified fresh score of 76 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Viewers seem to have enjoyed the film as well since it also received a 90 percent fresh audience score on the site. However, the film did not particularly well at the box office, grossing only $ 23 million worldwide against a $ 43 million budget. The movie may have suffered due to being released theatrically during the pandemic or just not receiving quite enough marketing for an original, standalone film, but it seems like Last Night in Soho is bound to find new life since most reactions from viewers have been positive.
