Movie Info

A cynical New York salesman (Michael Keaton) finds his scornful ways unexpectedly softened upon falling for the fiancée of his new business partner (Brendan Fraser), a Midwest transplant attempting to find his footing in the city, in screenwriter-turned-director Michael Caleo's feature directorial debut. The Bindview Company is a firm comfortably nestled in a corporate park that specializes in a highly profitable product. Ted (Keaton) is a former Northwestern University literature professor who has since found his calling in sales. When fresh-faced Ohio native Jamie (Fraser) arrives at Bindview eager to acclimate to life in the big city, cynical Ted greets the cub salesman with a palpable sense of scorn. Though Jamie is currently engaged to be married to the pretty Belisa (Amber Valletta), the bride-to-be is beginning to view her prospective spouse as something of a loser, and soon sets her sights on his reluctant mentor Ted.

Critic Reviews for The Last Time

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (8)

Seemingly developed at the David Mamet Institute for Twist-Laden Salesmen Dramas.

August 6, 2007 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

[Writer-director] Caleo isn't able to sell The Last Time -- not the affair and especially not the ludicrous twist ending.

May 18, 2007 | Rating: 1/4

Feels like a script that was written backwards, as if the twist ending occurred to [writer-director] Caleo first and he then filled out a story to get to it. Fair enough, except getting there in this case is just no fun.

May 18, 2007 | Rating: 2/4

Strives for contemporary noir in tone but feels closer to an ineffective parody of James M. Cain filtered through faux David Mamet dialogue.

May 18, 2007 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

While his cast is first-rate, director-writer Michael Caleo doesn't know quite what his movie is about.

May 17, 2007 | Rating: 2.5/4

For all the good work that went into it, the movie is as phony as a game of three-card monte.

Audience Reviews for The Last Time

Tries to be clever at the end but it only serves to make it look more stupid.

This was a good movie, I really didn't see the twist coming at all. The cast were all great and it was nice to see Brendon Fraser out of his lame action rut.

This was a good adult situations movie. Showing severe consequences when dealing with relationships and crossing lines. The ending was surprising but ended very weakly...See this for the experience...
