Consensus: It struggles to find a balance between its humor and its message, but The Last Supper's sharp script and well-chosen cast offer just enough nourishment for fans of black comedy.

Rita Kempley
Washington Post

This sour, repetitive fare fails to feed our hunger for either laughter or enlightenment. It's all empty calories and reactionary chic.

Geoff Andrew
Time Out

It falls apart, but the cool cast and caustic script will leave most right-thinking people well satisfied.

Deliciously Dark!

Desson Thomson
Washington Post

As the body count gets higher, and the housemates begin to question their high-and-mighty purposes, the movie stumbles under its sophomoric moral weight.

Janet Maslin
New York Times

The Last Supper shows some darkly effective visual style, but it has none of the wit needed to save such a story from lumbering obviousness and sophomoric political debate.

The flick seems like a long and well-told joke; one that's enjoyable to listen to despite the lack of a truly resounding punchline.

This low-budgeter that "came out of nowhere" is a fresh, pungent tale about Right and Left--and Right and Left--in contempo American politics, well-acted by a gifted ensmeble, including the young Cameron Diaz.

You know you're in good hands in The Last Supper from the well-directed first scene.

The Last Supper clearly shows that the noble principles are of little use when people can't overcome their lack of common sense.

Tense and scary black comedy, with a really good message. Well done.

A fun black comedy where no Religious or political view is safe.

This is the reason why I hate politics. You welcome yourself into this shit, you become a killer even if you don't want to. The only part I enjoyed is the… More

Pretty fun poke at political extremists. Short, and the movie doesn't really go anywhere but at the table, but it was fun for a lazy monday night.
Candy Rose
Black comedy about students discussing current affairs with dinner guests, which leads to murder. Good cast, sees a young Cameron Diaz. Good plot and ending.
Stuart Brooks
You know what, I prefered the bigotted people they killed than these annoying liberals...
