The Last Movie Star

Critics Consensus

The Last Movie Star has a few poignant moments thanks to Burt Reynolds and Ariel Winter, but their performances are stranded in a middling drama unworthy of their efforts.

Critic Reviews for The Last Movie Star

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (9)

  • The Last Movie Star strikes a note of banality in its first sequence from which it rarely deviates.

  • In a threadbare movie that doesn't deserve him, Burt Reynolds-playing a fictional version of himself- reminds us what a great actor he can be.

  • As a commentary on Reynolds' career trajectory, The Last Movie Star is hit-or-miss. What is undeniable, though, is the space Rifkin has created where Reynolds can do what Reynolds does best.

  • Another example of Reynolds accepting the wrong invitation and winding up in a role unworthy of his stature.

  • Thanks to its star's all-in commitment, the overtly maudlin film works better than it should ...

  • The director Adam Rifkin wrote this showcase for Mr. Reynolds, who, like Vic, was a college football player. "The Last Movie Star" effectively allows the ever-assured actor to score a touchdown on an empty field.
