San Francisco Chronicle

By Carla Meyer
The film doesn't always work, but it captures the buzz of moviemaking, and that's infectious.

Chicago Sun-Times

By Roger Ebert
Not a well-oiled enterprise but more of a series of laughs separated by waits for more laughs. It has a kind of earnest, eager quality, and it's so screwy you feel affection for it.

Entertainment Weekly

Teetering on an abyss of meta-wackiness, The Last Shot -- a movie about movie fakery, based on a true story about a fake movie -- succeeds modestly where, by all rights, it should fail miserably.

Wildly uneven, but contains moments that are right up there with "The Player."

Philadelphia Inquirer

By Steven Rea
Cross "Get Shorty" with "State and Main" - Hollywood hustlers, colorful crooks, crafty poseurs, and a production crew on location - and you have the stuff of The Last Shot. One other thing: eliminate anything funny.
