The humor does not negate the scenario's anguished heart, brought to wrenching life primarily by the extraordinary Oh.

For all its wry humor, it concludes as a heart-piercing affirmation of life and love in the face of death.

While it lacks the tension and panic of a similar film, Miracle Mile, [it] boasts a cast of intriguing characters in an equally intriguing (though unlikely) scenario.

Last Night succeeds where so many other films have failed because it concentrates on the element that its predecessors have ignored: the human factor.

There are moments of transcendant truth and beauty, surrounded by a film that isn't sure what it wants to do or where to go.

McKellar's only mistake was to craft the niggling central role of Patrick, and then play it himself.

The final countdown - when people are doing the things that most define them, in their infinite variety, as human beings - is exhilarating yet packed with significance.

Could have been unbearably ponderous, but Canadian actor/director Don McKellar injects wry humor in place of angst.
