  • [It's] a star-studded romcom that plays like an expensive Hallmark film.

    December 6, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Still, it's worth a visit to the multiplex to behold cinematographer John Schwartzman (National Treasure: Book of Secrets, The Founder) accept the challenge of illuminating a feature almost entirely by Christmas lights.

    November 22, 2019 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • Last Christmas is patronising, illogical and silly.

  • You don't want to spoil it - it's silly, but satisfying as a plum pudding.

  • The music of George Michael and Wham! is hauled out on to the soundtrack of this mouldy tangerine of a movie with about the same level of care and sensitivity that you might find on the festive mixtape at a motorway service station.

  • Clarke is wonderful, running around in a bright green elf suit with jaunty pointy-toed shoes showcasing a wild abandon that only grows more captivating as things progress.

Audience Reviews for Last Christmas

  • Apr 08, 2020
    Just wasn't my thing, or should I say it didn't tread over the well worn path. It was predictable and rather empty venture. I tend to enjoy the British comedies, but this wasn't a strong entry. The film was full of cliché story beats and one dimensional characters. The filmmaker has done better films, but I felt his presence wasn't required here. The film hits the third act and this is just running out of steam. I thought this might be a predictably strong outing for all involved, but sadly that wasn't the case. There's a strong cast here, but they have little to work with and this becomes a film that is serviceable instead of a must-see. 05/04/2020

    A likable movie that gets too cute and I was let down by the ending. Clarke and Fielding are a great pair and the acting is strong enough. Feig drops slap stick for rom/com and he almost pulls it off. 04/05/2020

    I don't really have an issue with the schmaltzy Hallmark movie of the week aesthetic but this whole thing is centered around a twist so baffling and awful that it never recovers once it is revealed.

    Emilia Clarke and Henry Golding are great together (Clarke is a very talented comedic actress and Golding is as charming as ever) and the premise at the core of their characters' story is genuinely interesting. But the film that surrounds them does them a great disservice — it's a messy, tonally uneven patchwork of corniness and poor writing that has no direction. The film never seems to land on what it wants to be, throwing ideas and random, badly connected storylines onto the canvas. If it had merely focused on Clarke and Golding, it just might have executed the main premise that much better. It's too bad - with the right editing and writing, this could have worked.
