February 27, 2017
Meadows' 1st beer(s), 1st joint, 1st sexual experience, 1st attempt at assertiveness... represent not just a concentrated and expedited coming-of-age narrative, but also an elegy for a nation's broader loss of innocence in its military excursions.
January 30, 2016
Jack Nicholson in one of his defining performances during a decade packed with 'em.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
April 3, 2013
Nicholson's cigar-chomping, profanity-spouting grunt is one of the greatest incarnations of stunted machismo onscreen, and he's brilliantly complemented by Quaid's picture-perfect awkwardness and Young's bracing cynicism.

The film has an engagingly profane, scruffy looseness, a hallmark of Hal Ashby and Robert Towne's careers, that undermines the conventions of the narrative.

Hal Ashby's gritty and profane serio comedy is one of his best films, featuring a towering performance from Jack Nicholson.

The interaction, dialogue, and parent/child-esque relationships are very well done, if somewhat repetitive.

O trio principal, beneficiado pela abordagem quase documental de Ashby, ajuda a construir um filme que conquista pela dinâmica dos personagens e sua camaradagem crescente em um mundo de autoritarismo e injustiças.
| Original Score: 5/5

A tough-talking, sparely directed effort by Hal Ashby, with an immaculate performance by Jack Nicholson.
October 31, 2007
Relentless, profane, cynical and bitterly funny, this still ranks among the best work by Nicholson and Ashby. An exhilarating trip from start to finish.
October 31, 2007
Ashby's direction is superlative, as is his use of music to help secure the mood.

One can't help feeling that the criticism of modern America hits out at all too easy targets in a vague and muffled manner.
January 24, 2006
Nicholson is outstanding, Quaid is compelling
| Original Score: 3/5
September 23, 2005
One of the best films of (and about) the 1970s.
| Original Score: 5/5
May 9, 2005
The Last Detail is one superbly funny, uproariously intelligent performance, plus two others that are very, very good, which are so effectively surrounded by profound bleakness that it seems to be a new kind of anti-comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
June 25, 2003
A 'talky' film without much to say.
| Original Score: 2/5
August 30, 2002
Holds up far, far better than Five Easy Pieces.
| Original Score: 5/5
September 26, 2001
Nicholson delivers one of the most ferociously energetic performances of his career.
