    Never achieves liftoff. show more

    Carla Meyer San Francisco Chronicle

    The film doesn't always work, but it captures the buzz of moviemaking, and that's infectious. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    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. show more

    Jami Bernard New York Daily News

    But there's no affection in this mean-spirited sendup of "the business" and nothing to mitigate its sour taste. show more

    Michael Rechtshaffen The Hollywood Reporter

    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. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Not a well-oiled enterprise but more of a series of laughs separated by waits for more laughs. It has a kind of earnest, eager quality, and it's so screwy you feel affection for it. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    Wildly uneven, but contains moments that are right up there with "The Player." show more

    Chicago Tribune

    Flockhart, as an actress desperate to show the world her talent but lethally unsure if she has any, embodies the obsessively driven personality it must take to make it, or to try to make it, in pictures. She's the personification of what The Last Shot could have been. show more

    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

    Nathanson processes this pungent stew of greed, ambition and self-delusion into pablum so sweet and bland it wouldn't shock a convent-raised idealist. show more
