Critic Reviews for The Last Movie Star

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

Despite a few good moments, this well-intentioned seriocomedy mostly wobbles between crude yocks, lame generation-gap humor and sentimental cliche.

Whatever pathos is generated comes from Reynolds's commitment to all the self-exploitation. His inimitable charm is still there beneath all the corporeal decrepitude on which Rifkin and company shamelessly linger.

...a love letter to Reynolds that manages to adore him unsentimentally, understanding that revealing the flaws can result in a fuller, richer portrait

March 12, 2018 | Full Review…

[The film's] lack of faith in its audience makes its over-explanation and hackneyed groaners unshakable weights on a story that only needed to let Reynolds do his thing.

May 4, 2017 | Rating: 4.1/10 | Full Review…

It's a labor of love, of mutual admiration, of fraternal respect. But it's also a film of deep sacrifice.

April 28, 2017 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

A movie that strives for elegiac depth, but achieves only snoozy shallowness.
