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

McKellar is a good storyteller, and he demonstrates a clever -- albeit dark -- sense of humor. But much of it goes for naught because of the movie's sterile patina.

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

Bare-bones filmmaking, Last Night is nothing special to look at, but it has a witty, trenchant script, lots of complicated characters, and a few actors who turn human frailty into something nearly sublime.

A wry treat.

Although Last Night eschews sentimentality, the situation is so extreme that there is ultimately no avoiding it. But the intense performances of [Ms Oh and McKellar] ... keep the suds from billowing into more than a few discreet bubbles.

As the final hour approaches for the characters in Last Night, there are moments of startling poignancy.
