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.

A tough-talking, sparely directed effort by Hal Ashby, with an immaculate performance by Jack Nicholson.

Salty, bawdy, hilarious and very touching.

One can't help feeling that the criticism of modern America hits out at all too easy targets in a vague and muffled manner.

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.
