  1. The film marks Braff as a talent to watch, blessed with the sort of natural, everyman appeal that audiences eat up.
  2. 75
    For the most part, The Last Kiss engages and pleases with its shaggy earnestness.
  3. 75
    Haggis' dialogue is virtually without clunkers, and it is delivered with the appropriate weight by a solid cast. Braff's limp performance is countered by Barrett's emotional riveting one (although he's in more scenes than she is).
  4. 63
    Veterans Danner and Wilkinson effortlessly make Anna and Stephen more interesting than all the youngsters combined.
  5. 60
    The Last Kiss is more a capable-craftsman film than a work of genuine dramatic insight, but here and there it opens a window onto the terror and wonder of grown-up life, one its characters don't especially want to look through.
  6. 50
    The fallibility of the romantic ideal -- which is nonetheless indispensable on screen and off -- is something Hollywood has trouble dealing with. "The Break-up," in which Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughan did just what the title promised, would have been a more notable exception if it were anything like a good movie. The Last Kiss, while not quite a good movie either, at least deserves credit for its honesty.
  7. 16
    Unfortunately, nothing about Tony Goldwyn's vapid, navel-gazing, claustrophobic adaptation of a 2001 Italian film rings remotely true.

I absolutely loved The Last Kiss. Nothing felt forced, the entire story just kind of rolled without the typical clichés, and predictable scenes. I found myself laughing throughout most of the movie. Even some of the serious moments turned out to be hilarious. Moving and touching. A must see. Expand

    I love the ensemble feel of this movie. It's honest and moving. A film for our generation, but I'd bring my parents! I loved it!

    Decent film of the chick-flick variety. A story of infidelity with a new angle.

    No, it's not Garden State. It wasn't directed by Zak Braff, It wasn't written by Zak Braff, it stars Zak Braff and that's No, it's not Garden State. It wasn't directed by Zak Braff, It wasn't written by Zak Braff, it stars Zak Braff and that's it. It is, in fact, a remake of an Italian comedy that was a quick paced ensemble piece that emphasized the comedy about four friends on the brink of 30 and becoming "grown ups". In this Americanized version, the pace is slowed down considerably and the emphasis is on the angst instead of the laughs. Its not Garden State, but it's an o.k. remake of a much better original. So what else is new in Hollywood? Expand

    What pretentious garbage. Sorry, not interested in self-pity, or a pathetic mid-life crisis from someone who's barely 30. "No more What pretentious garbage. Sorry, not interested in self-pity, or a pathetic mid-life crisis from someone who's barely 30. "No more surprises"? Poor boy, he wants to shag other women, preferably younger hot looking girls. And his own woman is conveniently an empty husk of a person, which makes it all easier. This would've been tolerable if the acting rose above the standards of WB teen drama. Danner is good, but she can't carry the picture by herself, not with these leads. Expand
