    Stops your heart and keeps your belly jiggling with laughter. It's an improbably sunny tragicomedy.

    More movies should be so funny and perceptive, with writing this sharp and acting this believable.
  3. While Last Kiss may strike some as a calculated crowd-pleaser, it's cleverly calculated, perceptive and often quite funny -- and a bit darker than it may first appear.
  4. A crowd-pleaser in the deepest sense, mixes heartbreak and happiness together until you don't even want to see them apart.
  5. In the end, The Last Kiss holds less a cynical view of the matrimonial state than one of considered irony.

    An Altman-influenced movie made without the master's acrid bitterness. The Last Kiss may come out of Italian opera and comedy, but in spirit it's Shakespearean -- objective, impassive, and at peace with a world in which men and women manage to be both ordinary and extraordinary.

    Craftily combining elements that speak directly to three different generations, this accomplished ensemble piece is shaping up to be the surprise homegrown hit of the season.
