A successful 30-year-old (Zach Braff) with a the perfect girlfriend (Jacinda Barrett) and a lucrative outlook on life struggles with the increasing pressures of adulthood as he weighs the merits of settling down with the woman who loves him against risking it all to be with a comely co-ed (Rachel Bilson) in director Tony Goldwyn's remake of Gabriele Muccino's 2001 comedy drama. Crash and Million Dollar Baby screenwriter Paul Haggis adapts a script originally penned by Italian filmmaker Muccino, and Casey Affleck, Blythe Danner, Eric Christian Olsen, and Tom Wilkinson co-star. ~ Jason… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Only the most rabid chick-flick fan will fail to notice that it's the movie that's all wet."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"The Last Kiss bears the unmistakable Haggis touch, one as subtle and understated as an electric chainsaw through the spinal cord."
‑ Nathan Rabin, AV Club
"A nicely unsentimental look at modern relationships, The Last Kiss suffers a bit from haphazardness in its construction, but holds up through a strong cast and solid writing."
‑ Joshua Starnes,
"a distinctly white bread romantic comedy sprinkled with brief flashes of modern-day American existentialist dread."
‑ Cole Smithey,
"Main problem here is Braff, whose lack of conviction does little to get us involved with the various plot complications, least of all his. The result seems like so much workshop for all involved."
‑ Jules Brenner, Cinema Signals
"Relatively compelling at the time, it's just a bit too glib to resonate for much longer afterwards."
‑ Trevor Johnston, Time Out
"... what makes The Last Kiss especially satisfying is its vision of love as the soul of partnership -- rather than the crack high known as romance -- and something worth fighting for."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"The Last Kiss isn't afraid of exploding romantic conventions--um, at least not at first. [Blu-ray]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"By risking the alienation of formula fans, screenwriter Paul Haggis and director Tony Goldwyn have taken a chance and given us a small gift."
‑ Brian Webster, Apollo Guide
"Probes in a light-hearted way the problems of individuals for whom the yearning of passion spells discontent."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"Danner will surely win an Oscar if enough people see this film, but the real point is that her stormy, erratic gender-bender Lear performance elevates The Last Kiss above a well-made genre drama."
‑ Andrew O'Hehir,
"... the movie occasionally reveals truths about relationships that, while not earth-shattering, are nonetheless entertaining and worth considering."
‑ Claudia Puig, USA Today
"One of the most underrated films of 2006 with a criminally under-appreciated performance from Casey Affleck..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"...another Hollywood fabrication about how people act and feel.... substituting theatrics for genuine emotion."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"Fazendo um bom trabalho de direção, Tony Goldwyn cria uma narrativa leve e sensível, demonstrando inteligência em momentos nos quais ilustra os problemas do protagonista de maneira sutil."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
