THE LAST KISS | Film | Pittsburgh | Pittsburgh City Paper


Oh dear. We've got another set of thirtysomething buddies with commitment issues. In the rarefied world of upper-middle-class dudes with good jobs, supportive parents and sensible cars, apparently getting married to a great girl and starting a family is a fate worst than death, requiring much navel-gazing, boozing, whoring and brooding. Tony Goldwyn's dramedy is an adaptation of L'ultimo Bacio, the 2001 Italian film that fretted over the same topic. Here, Zach Braff is our chief nail-biter; Jacinda Barrett his patient and pregnant girlfriend. This pair is likable enough at first that the set-up and inevitable nasty conflict held my interest, even through an awkward subplot about her parents' troubles. It was during the interminable resolution, complete with rainstorms and weepy indie tunes, that I wondered why it felt like I was paying the price. (AH)
