When Agent Joe Devine (Alec Baldwin) is given a key role in an elaborate scheme to take down the infamous mob boss John Gotti, he gladly accepts the assignment and goes undercover as a Hollywood producer. Before long, he has assembled an unwitting cast, including aspiring director Steven Schatz (Matthew Broderick), who agrees to direct for

The Last Shot doesn't crackle and pop, but the send-up of Hollywood and the government gets off some good lines and generally endears itself with a kind of earnest scattershot loopiness.
Appealingly cheesy, a tribute to the hope that springs eternal in the hopelessly inept.
Planned inanity never gets mad mad mad mad enough, and insider jabs like "I'm not a fake, I'm a director!" don't have the desired zaniness.
It's all very loose and, while occasionally diverting, doesn't really add up to anything.
A ripped-from-the- headlines story rendered with wit, imagination and no small amount of moxie.
It's got some really solid actors and even a fairly amusing premise ... so where are all the laughs?
Divertido em seu humor ingênuo e inofensivo, conquista principalmente graças ao carisma da dupla principal.
The story tries to make up for its lack of laughs by offering a series of quirky characters and bizarre moments, a tactic that works for a while but runs out of steam....
...never quite becomes anything more than a marginally entertaining way to kill 93 minutes.
There must be a story behind the orphaning of this odd, insidery Hollywood comedy reputedly based on a true story.
A silly movie that never for a minute tries to be anything else...it doesn't require anything from its audience but to laugh and enjoy the show.
There's an eccentric enchantment and easy friendliness to screenwriter Jeff Nathanson's modest debut film.
Ultimately plays like a low-rent version of the far superior Get Shorty.
Broderick and Baldwin occupy the center ring quite entertainingly, but there's a lot of hysterically funny upstaging from the sidelines.
Match the right actors to right roles, and it doesn't always matter when a movie misses its potential.
This is really funny.
