Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"For all its wry humor, it concludes as a heart-piercing affirmation of life and love in the face of death."
‑ Steve Murray, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"Although Last Night eschews sentimentality, the situation is so extreme that there is ultimately no avoiding it. But the intense performances of [Ms Oh and McKellar] ... keep the suds from billowing into more than a few discreet bubbles."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"The humor does not negate the scenario's anguished heart, brought to wrenching life primarily by the extraordinary Oh."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"While it lacks the tension and panic of a similar film, Miracle Mile, [it] boasts a cast of intriguing characters in an equally intriguing (though unlikely) scenario."
‑ Brian Mckay,
"What begins as a serious attempt to question the materiality of existence and an individual's lack of control within a larger world spirals into a rather cloying romanticism."
‑ J. Serpico, PopMatters
"McKellar is a good storyteller, and he demonstrates a clever -- albeit dark -- sense of humor. But much of it goes for naught because of the movie's sterile patina."
‑ Jeff Strickler, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"As the final hour approaches for the characters in Last Night, there are moments of startling poignancy."
‑ Roger Ebert, At the Movies
"Required viewing for anyone who hasn't yet planned her own last night."
‑ Martin Scribbs, Low IQ Canadian
"It's the End of The World as We Know It, and this crafty Canadian film chronicles the end times in smart, snappy fashion."
‑ James Rocchi, Netflix
"Last Night is the work of a good playwright, not a screenwriter."
‑ Harvey S. Karten, Compuserve
"Last Night succeeds where so many other films have failed because it concentrates on the element that its predecessors have ignored: the human factor."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"stunning apocalyptic drama"
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"The film has a kind of airless, artificial quality that made it seem much longer than it actually was."
‑ Nick Davis, Nick's Flick Picks
"Last Night employs an intriguing 'what if' scenario and mines a few authentic moments, but is hampered by the narrow imagination of its young creator."
‑ Eric Monder, Film Journal International
"One of the few genuinely original films at the 1998 Cannes Festival."
‑ Ed Scheid, Boxoffice Magazine
