Movie Info

Filmmaker Peter Bogdanovich pays tribute to those lavish 1930s musicals in this big-budget outing. Using first-rate sets, glorious costumes, and the wonderful songs of Cole Porter, it follows the romantic misadventures of four wealthy, young sophisticates. Unfortunately, Bogdanovich badly miscast the roles, putting Burt Reynolds and Cybil Shepherd in the leads. All of the actors involved did sing their own songs live during the filming (usually, songs are pre-recorded and lip-synched).

This Cole Porter coloring book, mounted with great expense and no taste, is one of those grand catastrophes that make audiences either hoot in derisive surprise or look away in embarrassment.

A disappointing and embarrassing waste of talent.

It's an indulgent movie -- Peter and Cybill having a lark with their friends -- but it's also a neat parody of '30s musicals.

The movie's no masterpiece, but I can't account for the viciousness of some of the critical attacks against it.

At Long Last Love never quite sinks, but then it never leaves the pier.

Audience Reviews for At Long Last Love


Glue footed travesty that makes a mockery of the very films it sets out to honor. Bogdanovich has seemingly no understanding of the genre and even if the cast were better the film would still be deeply flawed. A very few performers acquit themselves without shame, unsurprisingly they are old pros Mildred Natwick, John Hillerman and too a lesser extent Eileen Brennan. Madeleine Kahn tries her best and isn't terrible but the songs aren't suited to her unique brand of talent and the direction does her no favors. Duilio Del Prete is a nonenitity who makes no impression. That leaves the leads who are awful both separately and together. Reynolds at least seems to be giving it the old college try the problem being that he can neither sing nor dance and shares zero chemistry with Cybill Shepherd. Early in her career here she is hopelessly out of her depth, in time she was able to perform a song with at least a little finesse, not here. She also dances with no grace whatsoever and is stiff in her scenes, the movie stops dead whenever she is on screen. A mess!
