It's got some really solid actors and even a fairly amusing premise ... so where are all the laughs?

Divertido em seu humor ingênuo e inofensivo, conquista principalmente graças ao carisma da dupla principal.

The story tries to make up for its lack of laughs by offering a series of quirky characters and bizarre moments, a tactic that works for a while but runs out of steam....

...never quite becomes anything more than a marginally entertaining way to kill 93 minutes.

There must be a story behind the orphaning of this odd, insidery Hollywood comedy reputedly based on a true story.

A silly movie that never for a minute tries to be anything doesn't require anything from its audience but to laugh and enjoy the show.

The Last Shot doesn't crackle and pop, but the send-up of Hollywood and the government gets off some good lines and generally endears itself with a kind of earnest scattershot loopiness.

"The Last Shot" commits the cardinal sin of comedies: it isn't funny.

There's an eccentric enchantment and easy friendliness to screenwriter Jeff Nathanson's modest debut film.

Ultimately plays like a low-rent version of the far superior Get Shorty.

Broderick and Baldwin occupy the center ring quite entertainingly, but there's a lot of hysterically funny upstaging from the sidelines.

Match the right actors to right roles, and it doesn't always matter when a movie misses its potential.

Appealingly cheesy, a tribute to the hope that springs eternal in the hopelessly inept.

Planned inanity never gets mad mad mad mad enough, and insider jabs like "I'm not a fake, I'm a director!" don't have the desired zaniness.

This is really funny.

Not as biting as 'The Players' but an intermittently funny story of a Hollywood ticket-taker who is chosen to direct a movie.
