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

...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 else...it 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.

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

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.

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

In the terms of the money-hungry Hollywood mindset, The Last Shot is an amusing, likable sleeper hit, but not an out-of-the-stratosphere blockbuster.

A ripped-from-the- headlines story rendered with wit, imagination and no small amount of moxie.
