Critic Reviews for The Last of Sheila
A bit chilly: the writers were so busy making sure the mystery was structurally airtight that they missed out on crafting rich, deep characters.
Campy gamer thriller that wasn't as much fun as it pretended to be.
The Last of Sheila is a crackerjack brainteaser, even if you forget it two minutes after you see it.
The Last of Sheila is so intricately scripted that Sondheim and Perkins actually drop clues throughout the film that can be picked up by attentive viewers.
A witty and urbane jigsaw puzzle of a murder mystery for those who love surprises.
Audience Reviews for The Last of Sheila
interesting whodunit ala 10 little indians..colorful talented cast including Coburn, Mason, Welch, Benjamin...problem was I thought too much trying to put the clues together to really enjoy what was happening on the screen...I liked it, just confused me at the end and never did figure it out despite several viewings..
great puzzle of a film with a great 70's cast!

One year after his beloved, Sheila(Yvonne Romaine), a gossip columnist, was killed by a hit and run driver, he has invited six friends - an actress(Raquel Welch), her tempestuous husband(Ian McShane), an agent(Dyan Cannon), a struggling writer(Richard Benjamin), his rich wife(Joan Hackett) and a director(James Mason) to spend a week on his yacht cruising in the Mediterranean under the auspices of possibly filming a biopic about Sheila but also to play a wicked game. The object of the game is to discover a person's secret and everyone aboard has one...[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]"The Last of Sheila" is a lightweight mystery written by Anthony Perkins and Steven Sondheim. The film spends too much time in the setup and the ending is questionable but a good cast makes the most of the material.[/font]
