Movie Info

In pursuit of a crime kingpin, government operative Joe Devine (Alec Baldwin) poses as an entertainment industry big shot in hopes of leveraging Mafia-connected union man Tommy Sanz (Tony Shalhoub). To enact the guise, Joe must pretend to be filming an actual movie. So he taps would-be director Steven Schats (Matthew Broderick) without explaining that the flick is a ruse. Joe is so taken, however, with his posh new lifestyle that he begins to forget all about catching criminals.

Audience Reviews for The Last Shot

  • Apr 28, 2014
    Based on a true story, The Last Shot is a fun, satirical comedy that's full of laughs. In an attempt to bring down a mob boss the FBI sets up an elaborate sting operation posing as movie producers, but before long the fake movie they're making starts to take on a life of its own. The writing is pretty good and includes some interesting commentary about Hollywood and the tactics used by the FBI. Matthew Broderick, Alec Baldwin, Tony Shalhoub, and Calista Flockhart lead the cast and deliver some impressive performances. But, the character development is weak and there are some extraneous subplots that don't payoff. Yet, The Last Shot overcomes its script issues and delivers an entertaining film that tells an unusual tale of life and art blurring together.

    the one joke premise becomes terribly boring after a while. the film promises a lot with the cast of interesting actors but sadly they can't save this one.

    I'm a sucker for movies about making movies. This one is decent with some nice in-jokes. Nothing special, but better than critics said.
