September 23, 2004
Ensemble comedy about an FBI agent who poses as a producer to catch the mob is occasionally funny, but not great.

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

In The Last Shot, it's the women who steal the show ... but it makes for a better night at home on cable.

Jeff Nathanson's attempt tries to tell a nearly unbelievable true story but settles into being an unfocused clone of sharper works

"The Last Shot" commits the cardinal sin of comedies: it isn't funny.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
May 16, 2005
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....

Cross Get Shorty with State and Main -- Hollywood hustlers, colorful crooks, crafty poseurs, and a production crew on location -- and you have the stuff of The Last Shot. One other thing: eliminate anything funny.

The number of moving parts, storylines and people being shuffled about does the movie in.
September 23, 2004
The premise of this Disney-funded movie, based on a true story, is promising, but the film itself is a hard slog.

There are some very funny passing lines, but the movie's too uneven to enjoy.
September 22, 2004
Unremarkable, noisy and crude; but there is a low-key kick in watching Baldwin and Broderick enjoy each other so immensely.

Clunky comedy.

The problem with one joke movies is that after the joke there's still a movie you have to sit through. These are 93 loonnng minutes...an appalling waste of talented actors!

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

instead of a sharp satiric edge, there is the dull thud of overripe tomatoes hitting the pavement

More or less a neutered version of Robert Altman's sexy beast The Player.

[Director Jeff Nathanson] sucks the life and the timing out of every scene.

September 28, 2004
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.
