Plot Summary
In pursuit of a crime kingpin, government operative Joe Devine (Alec Baldwin) poses as an entertainment industry big shot in hopes of leveraging Mafia-connected union man Tommy Sanz (Tony Shalhoub). To enact the guise, Joe must pretend to be filming an actual movie. So he taps would-be director Steven Schats (Matthew Broderick) without explaining that the flick is a ruse. Joe is so taken, however, with his posh new lifestyle that he begins to forget all about catching criminals.

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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
