The Last Movie Star (2018)



Critic Consensus: The Last Movie Star has a few poignant moments thanks to Burt Reynolds and Ariel Winter, but their performances are stranded in a middling drama unworthy of their efforts.

Critic Reviews for The Last Movie Star

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (11)

The Last Movie Star strikes a note of banality in its first sequence from which it rarely deviates.

In a threadbare movie that doesn't deserve him, Burt Reynolds-playing a fictional version of himself- reminds us what a great actor he can be.

March 30, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

As a commentary on Reynolds' career trajectory, The Last Movie Star is hit-or-miss. What is undeniable, though, is the space Rifkin has created where Reynolds can do what Reynolds does best.
