Comedy Drama - This is not exactly the light comedy one would expect from star Zach
Braff but more of an ensemble comedy/drama as it takes a look at
serious relationship issues. Also, heed the R rating as there are
strong scenes of sexuality and harsh language throughout.
Roger EbertFull Review Good This is a solid, adult-themed film for our contemporary world, where commitment and marriage and traditional values continue to face challenges every day -- and in every relationship.
USA TodayFull Review Above Average But the movie occasionally reveals truths about relationships that, while not earth-shattering, are nonetheless entertaining and worth considering.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 76 moviegoers:
TEENS:The females enjoyed "The Last Kiss," but it didn't get the real high opinions teen females easily give most movies targeted at them. It also received several very bad opinions. What this tells me is that most females will enjoy this movie quite a bit, but few will love it. As for the guys, two enjoyed it, one didn't. Unfortunately, these aren't enough opinions to be very accurate. The twentysomething male opinions would likely be a better indicator.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:A little over half of the males and females really enjoyed "The Last Kiss." Most of the remaining opinions were in the average range with a fair number of somewhat low opinions. These opinions aren't bad, but they certainly aren't as high as you would expect for a movie targeted at a younger crowd. Very few truly disliked it, so I can recommend it, but just not very strongly. You might want to catch it at a lower priced matinee to be on the safe side.
ADULTS:The male opinions aren't very good. Half thought it was an average to above average movie and half thought it was below average to terrible. That's not good enough to recommend it except possibly as a date movie since the adult female opinions are pretty high. About two-thirds of the ladies really enjoyed "The Last Kiss." The remaining third rated it average to below average, which isn't very good. Also there are very few "Fantastic" and "Excellent" opinions. I can recommend this movie to adult females because most will enjoy it, at least to some degree. However, the opinions aren't strong enough to warrant rushing out to see it. In fact, I would recommend that you consider a lower priced matinee.
