Movie Info

T.R. Knight, Danny Aiello, Vincent Pastore, and Gilbert Gottfried star in writer/director John DeBellis' bittersweet romantic comedy about a dying father who implores one of his sons to have a baby boy and carry on the family name. Pop (Aiello) is dying, but before he punches out he wants to make sure that his legacy will live on. In order to insure that this happens, he begs his sons Tom (Knight) and Jeff (also Knight) to marry a woman and father a son. While Tom is more than up to the task, tragedy strikes when he dies trying. Now it's all up to Jeff, but how does a seminary student who's planning on becoming a priest maintain his vow of celibacy and fulfill his father's dying wish at the same time? When Pop confronts Jeff with a question that shakes the loyal son to the very core, he abandons the seminary in order to follow through on his dear old dad's final request.

Audience Reviews for The Last Request

When are people going to figure out that stupidity is not humor? I watched almost half of this and saw nothing but juvenile, pathetic attempts at humor that had nothing to do with anything. Don't waste your time.

I should demand for my $1 back for the rental. Was such a bad movie, had a few funny jokes but not enough to be worth the buck.

Picture a "Scary Movie" version that pokes fun at death. Then, add a priest that tries to lose his virginity, because his dying father wants someone to carry on the family name. Picture that trying to be funny, and throw in some old cast members of the Sopranos, and you have an italian comedy about death. The cover looked amusing, but the movie poster doesn't seem to match. At the store, it has a hand coming out of a blender, doing the "OK" sign. That looked amusing, but the cover fibbed. I didn't laugh or smirk the entire time. It just lacked the comedy factor. My last request would be to take this movie from the shelves, and erase it, permanently.
