The Last Shot Reviews

October 14, 2004
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.
September 30, 2004
Appealingly cheesy, a tribute to the hope that springs eternal in the hopelessly inept.
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.
September 24, 2004
It's all very loose and, while occasionally diverting, doesn't really add up to anything.
September 24, 2004
A funny hybrid of Hollywood satire and mob comedy.
September 24, 2004
A ripped-from-the- headlines story rendered with wit, imagination and no small amount of moxie.
September 24, 2004
Thoroughly amusing.
September 24, 2004
Minor but racy and enjoyably rude.
September 24, 2004
The movie has one joke, but it's a funny joke.
September 24, 2004
There's no affection in this mean-spirited sendup of 'the business' and nothing to mitigate its sour taste.
September 24, 2004
It's so screwy you feel affection for it.
September 24, 2004
The Last Shot is wildly uneven, but contains moments that are right up there with The Player.
September 24, 2004
There are some very funny passing lines, but the movie's too uneven to enjoy.
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.
September 23, 2004
The number of moving parts, storylines and people being shuffled about does the movie in.
September 23, 2004
Never achieves liftoff.
September 23, 2004
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.
September 23, 2004
With a few detours into questionable taste, it's a hoot.
September 23, 2004
An often funny if slight satire that's never as edgy as it thinks it is or as sharply focused as it needs to be to put it in a league with a Get Shorty or a State and Main.
September 23, 2004
Succeeds modestly where, by all rights, it should fail miserably.
