Movie Info

Somehow the entire population of the Earth has been obliterated, leaving the buildings standing and the preserved food intact. The environment seems to be OK, too. From the emptiness of the planet emerges Alan (David Arnott), a nebbishy anthropology graduate student who is coming to terms with his fate as the last man on Earth -- until he discovers Sarah (Jeri Ryan), a beautiful, intelligent woman who can't stand the idea that neurotic, portly Alan is the last man she'll ever be near. They make an encampment in a desert and begin their lives together -- him, delirious; her reluctant -- until they encounter Raphael (Dan Montgomery) hitchhiking along the road. Raphael, although a bit dim, is tall, handsome and fun-loving, and Alan finds that he has to change in order to compete for Sarah's affection, or spend his life without a woman. But nature is full of surprises.


Critic Reviews for The Last Man

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (4)

  • What might have emerged as hilarious lunacy in the hands of Woody Allen or Mel Brooks (at least during their '70s heyday) comes across as lame and sophomoric in this debut indie feature.

  • Feeble comedy.

  • Alan and his fellow survivors are idiosyncratic enough to lift the movie above its playwriting 101 premise.

    Feb 14, 2002 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • If The Last Man were the last movie left on earth, there would be a toss-up between presiding over the end of cinema as we know it and another night of delightful hand shadows.

  • Has its charming quirks and its dull spots.

    Dec 31, 2002 | Rating: 67/100
  • Intended to be a comedy about relationships, this wretched work falls flat in just about every conceivable area.
