Romance isn't trouble-free in `The Last Kiss'

Review B+

September 15, 2006|By Chris Kaltenbach | Chris Kaltenbach,Sun Movie Critic

In a land of commitment-phobes, where people are scared and don't know why, The Last Kiss understands.

A remake of Italian writer-director Gabriele Muccino's L'Ultimo Bacio, The Last Kiss is about those last frightening days of youth, when it looks as though all the carefree good times are about to end. It's about the human animal's uncanny ability always to believe the other man's grass is greener and never appreciate how perfect his own lawn is. It's about the fickleness of the heart and its troublesome lack of connection to the mind.

The Last Kiss (Paramount) Starring Zach Braff, Jacinda Barrett, Rachel Bilson. Directed by Tony Goldwyn. Rated R. Time 115 minutes.
