The Last Supper (1996)



Critic Consensus: It struggles to find a balance between its humor and its message, but The Last Supper's sharp script and well-chosen cast offer just enough nourishment for fans of black comedy.

Critic Reviews for The Last Supper

All Critics (32) | Top Critics (12)

This sour, repetitive fare fails to feed our hunger for either laughter or enlightenment. It's all empty calories and reactionary chic.

Washington Post
Top Critic

As the body count gets higher, and the housemates begin to question their high-and-mighty purposes, the movie stumbles under its sophomoric moral weight.

June 9, 2010
Washington Post
Top Critic

This low-budgeter that "came out of nowhere" is a fresh, pungent tale about Right and Left--and Right and Left--in contempo American politics, well-acted by a gifted ensmeble, including the young Cameron Diaz.

It falls apart, but the cool cast and caustic script will leave most right-thinking people well satisfied.

The Last Supper shows some darkly effective visual style, but it has none of the wit needed to save such a story from lumbering obviousness and sophomoric political debate.

You know you're in good hands in The Last Supper from the well-directed first scene.

Audience Reviews for The Last Supper


Tense and scary black comedy, with a really good message. Well done.

This is the reason why I hate politics. You welcome yourself into this shit, you become a killer even if you don't want to. The only part I enjoyed is the food. I must say those looked delicious smiley emoticons. And the ending was nice. Serves them right to act like a God.

Black comedy about students discussing current affairs with dinner guests, which leads to murder. Good cast, sees a young Cameron Diaz. Good plot and ending.
