Critic Reviews for Last of the Red Hot Lovers

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

Alan Arkin, a very funny man with some personal mannerisms that don't always fit the role, makes good use of all of them here, even those nervous eyes.

March 26, 2009 | Full Review…

A few laughs are wrung out of the situation, and Sally Kellerman provides more as a raunchy lady on a fish diet, but it's all 'heart', of course. Pretty dire.

February 9, 2006 | Full Review…

Alan Arkin does everything wrong that can be done to the role of Barney Cashman, denying him any hint of ebullience or vitality, and leaving him only a loud mouth, a clumsy manner and an attitude that seems to bespeak a perpetually upset stomach.

May 9, 2005 | Full Review…

Although the laughs aren't as solid or as frequent as The Odd Couple's, it remains one of Simon's best works.

January 16, 2020 | Full Review…

[It] was a very funny thing on stage, but with serious overtones. On film Simon's lines have just as much wit, just as much fun and just as much bite. But... The hero's anguish seems to overshadow his fumbling attempts at being a Casanova.

April 4, 2019 | Full Review…

Based on the humorous Neil Simon play of the same name, this film is not nearly so funny.
