AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Chevy Chase and Richard Dreyfuss are a sight for sore eyes, but they unfortunately do not get The Last Laugh in a generic buddy comedy that never musters any jokes worthy of their comedic chops.

Critic Reviews for The Last Laugh

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (2)

The picture's single saving grace is Chase's co-star Dreyfuss, who deploys all of his considerable charisma. He shines, but not brightly enough to bring this moribund project to life.

Would that there was a first laugh.

January 12, 2019 | Full Review…

The Last Laugh tries its best to tell a sweet tale about growing old with dignity and never giving up on your true self. The film is a mild recommendation for the right audience.

The film has too many weak points to recommend immediately adding to your queue, but off the strength of Dreyfuss' performance, it's worth checking out.

February 22, 2019 | Rating: 5.5/10 | Full Review…

[With] comedy talent like Chase (his most understated and likable in years) and Dreyfuss...working every inch of the frame, the result is more sweet sentiment and hearty guffaws than the material often deserves.

February 6, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Senior-citizen buddy comedy has salty language, sex.
