Consensus: Wildly uneven comedy.

The Last Shot doesn't crackle and pop, but the send-up of Hollywood and the government gets off some good lines and generally endears itself with a kind of earnest scattershot loopiness.

A funny hybrid of Hollywood satire and mob comedy.

I'm a sucker for movies about making movies. This one is decent with some nice in-jokes. Nothing special, but better than critics said.
