The film skates by on charm, wit and a firm belief that commitment is always the best choice.

Although it gives us more characters than we can easily keep count of, it's hard to care about any of them.

The lively appeal of The Last Kiss lies in the ease with which it integrates thoughtfulness and pasta-fagioli comedy.

Repackages messy human dilemmas into something neat, tidy and oh-so-manipulatively inspiring.

Audience Reviews for The Last Kiss (L'Ultimo bacio)

this is a great movie! the american version doesn't even compare since it was homogeonized and removed the pain and true comedy. strong performances by all actors. i found the ending truly funny.

for sexuality, language, drug use.

L'Ultimo Bacio was a movie, in which some men will recognize themselves in. The movie was based on what most men feel as they are approaching, the age of 30, where its expected to grow up, marry or start a family. These are important decisions and sometimes they are not ready in making them yet. So they start doing the most funny things, which sometimes don't have happy ending at all. I highly recommend this movie. Love it.
