Consensus: An engrossing, poignant film, Last Night examines the end of the world through humorous and thought-provoking dialogue.

Steve Murray
Atlanta Journal-Constitution

For all its wry humor, it concludes as a heart-piercing affirmation of life and love in the face of death.

Stephen Holden
New York Times

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.

stunning apocalyptic drama

Jeff Strickler
Minneapolis Star Tribune

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.

Village Voice

Bare-bones filmmaking, Last Night is nothing special to look at, but it has a witty, trenchant script, lots of complicated characters, and a few actors who turn human frailty into something nearly sublime.

Michael Dequina

The humor does not negate the scenario's anguished heart, brought to wrenching life primarily by the extraordinary Oh.

James Berardinelli

Last Night succeeds where so many other films have failed because it concentrates on the element that its predecessors have ignored: the human factor.

<i>Last Night</i> takes an absurd concept and turns it into something personal and endearing. An intelligent and somewhat subtle apocalypse.
