The Last Laugh Reviews

March 20, 2019
The Last Laugh tries its best to tell a sweet tale about growing old with dignity and never giving up on your true self. The film is a mild recommendation for the right audience.
February 23, 2019
The film has too many weak points to recommend immediately adding to your queue, but off the strength of Dreyfuss' performance, it's worth checking out.

[With] comedy talent like Chase (his most understated and likable in years) and Dreyfuss...working every inch of the frame, the result is more sweet sentiment and hearty guffaws than the material often deserves.

Senior-citizen buddy comedy has salty language, sex.
January 16, 2019
There's a certain level of breeziness that's worth a sit, especially for anyone who's lost their faith in Chase and Dreyfuss in recent years.
January 16, 2019
The picture's single saving grace is Chase's co-star Dreyfuss, who deploys all of his considerable charisma. He shines, but not brightly enough to bring this moribund project to life.
January 15, 2019
With Chase and Dreyfuss's classic talents, this could have been quite the romp. Instead we get poor jokes delivered by two masters. It's too less of a good thing.
January 15, 2019
Not only is the material bad, but it feels like Chase and Dreyfuss know it, as they fail to jazz up the story or their characters at all.

Chevy Chase and Richard Dreyfuss know the way to entertain us! Watching these two is lots of fun -- with a tear or two when it's done.
January 12, 2019
Fundamentally generic old codger froth, yet elevated by Richard Dreyfuss' endearing performance.

Would that there was a first laugh.
January 11, 2019
It's a classic "watch while folding laundry" movie, with a few laughs and an earnest performance from Dreyfuss.
January 11, 2019
Despite the film's flaws, you can't help rooting for Dreyfuss and Chase.
January 11, 2019
A good-hearted but largely uninspired, by-the-numbers bit of Netflix filler.
January 11, 2019
Even if it doesn't reinvent the wheel, The Last Laugh works because Chase and Dreyfuss give their all to their roles. In fact, Chevy gives one of the best performances of his career.
