In the terms of the money-hungry Hollywood mindset, The Last Shot is an amusing, likable sleeper hit, but not an out-of-the-stratosphere blockbuster.

The problem with one joke movies is that after the joke there's still a movie you have to sit through. These are 93 loonnng minutes...an appalling waste of talented actors!

In The Last Shot, it's the women who steal the show ... but it makes for a better night at home on cable.

Nathanson processes this pungent stew of greed, ambition and self-delusion into pablum so sweet and bland it wouldn't shock a convent-raised idealist.

It's all very loose and, while occasionally diverting, doesn't really add up to anything.

[Nathanson has] loaded the movie with so much adolescent crudity that there's precious little room left for anything else, including wit.

A ripped-from-the- headlines story rendered with wit, imagination and no small amount of moxie.

There's no affection in this mean-spirited sendup of 'the business' and nothing to mitigate its sour taste.

There are some very funny passing lines, but the movie's too uneven to enjoy.

The Last Shot is wildly uneven, but contains moments that are right up there with The Player.

It succeeds in appearing not only to approximate a real Hollywood production, but to actually be one itself.
