Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"What might have emerged as hilarious lunacy in the hands of Woody Allen or Mel Brooks (at least during their '70s heyday) comes across as lame and sophomoric in this debut indie feature."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"If The Last Man were the last movie left on earth, there would be a toss-up between presiding over the end of cinema as we know it and another night of delightful hand shadows."
‑ Ed Park, Village Voice
"It's the end of the world as metaphor for how we scuttle relationships, and it's a remarkably apt one."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
"Feeble comedy."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"Has its charming quirks and its dull spots."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Apollo Guide
"Ralston has a clever conceit behind this low-budget effort."
‑ Andy Klein, New Times
"Alan and his fellow survivors are idiosyncratic enough to lift the movie above its playwriting 101 premise."
‑ A.O. Scott, New York Times
"Intended to be a comedy about relationships, this wretched work falls flat in just about every conceivable area."
‑ Warren Curry, Filmcritic.com
"In the end, there isn't much to it."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
