A nicely unsentimental look at modern relationships, The Last Kiss suffers a bit from haphazardness in its construction, but holds up through a strong cast and solid writing.

The Last Kiss isn't afraid of exploding romantic conventions--um, at least not at first. [Blu-ray]

One of the most underrated films of 2006 with a criminally under-appreciated performance from Casey Affleck...

a distinctly white bread romantic comedy sprinkled with brief flashes of modern-day American existentialist dread.

By risking the alienation of formula fans, screenwriter Paul Haggis and director Tony Goldwyn have taken a chance and given us a small gift.

...another Hollywood fabrication about how people act and feel.... substituting theatrics for genuine emotion.

Main problem here is Braff, whose lack of conviction does little to get us involved with the various plot complications, least of all his. The result seems like so much workshop for all involved.

Probes in a light-hearted way the problems of individuals for whom the yearning of passion spells discontent.

Fazendo um bom trabalho de direção, Tony Goldwyn cria uma narrativa leve e sensível, demonstrando inteligência em momentos nos quais ilustra os problemas do protagonista de maneira sutil.

A perceptive look at relationships in crisis, the remake of Gabriele Muccino's 2003 film L'ultimo bacio is a romantic comedy that focuses on love when it is blue.

This is like watching people stick their hands on a gas stove's fire because no one told them not to do it and they couldn't figure it out themselves.

Only the most rabid chick-flick fan will fail to notice that it's the movie that's all wet.

Strong performances and interesting ideas make the film worth a gamble but it's far from the relationship classic it longs to be.

Crediting its audience with emotional intelligence, this rises well above your usual rom-com-dram.

Braff's gormless, blank-faced acting worked in Garden State because his character was depressed and withdrawn, but here it only serves to render him smug, punchable and utterly unsympathetic.

Relatively compelling at the time, it's just a bit too glib to resonate for much longer afterwards.

If similar ideas hadn't inspired a dozen or so other films, Last Kiss might have been an exciting movie.
