On Chicago's West Side, there is a school for the city's most at-risk youth - the Moses Montefiore Academy. Most of the students at Montefiore have been kicked out of other schools for ... See full summary »
FBI director Jack Devine always sets up his brother Joe as undercover to trick mobsters. His latest cover is as movie producer Joe Diamond, to get Tommy Sanz for Teamster racketeering. His cover requires a script - the one movie theater manager Steven Schats and his brother Marshall 'Paris' wrote, supposedly a cancer biopic. So Steven is hired as director, his greatest dream, even if producing an Arizona desert drama on Rhode Island is far from ideal. When a former Oscar nominee volunteers to star, the cover gets out of hand till everyone believes in it, even the FBI brass- or not? Written by
In the "burro casting" sequence neither of the animals being considered are burros. They are both mules - the sterile offspring of a burro (donkey) and a horse. See more »

At this time, I would like to introduce Fanny Nash, the producer of the hit comedy "No Means No" to discuss proper Hollywood protocol.
I am over 35 years old. I am physically unable to bear children. And I pay alimony to my ex-husband, who is a faggot. Yet I am willing to bet that all of you would fuck me over that desk right now if you knew you'd be having lunch with Harrison Ford as soon as you blew your wad. If you wanna carry yourself like you're in the movie business, you need to act like ...

If you expect to see this film knowing nothing about it , don't read on. That said, I can see where the Last Shot is not a film that will appeal to everyone. but it will appeal to those who don't take Hollywood seriously. I didn't get to see it in the theatre because it never was offered here and that is a shame. It has every Hollywood cliché',rumor,perception,and is Hollywood,as well as what we hope Hollywood is not. If true that it is based on a true event, then It is all the funnier. It is Funny! It takes some very pointed jabs at everything Hollywood is and everything movie goers think it is. It's over the top, albeit you may laugh uncomfortably at things you know are true and some you know are not (or hope not anyway.) Just the thought of using the production of a film by the FBI as a sting operation is intriguing enough. But add in that the "director" and a few others are not aware the "film" is not real and you get the point. at times painfully funny. because I was laughing at everything I had come to believe about movie making. In the end, there you have what might be truth... everyone wants to make a movie. Even the FBI agent/producer. For him the line between the objective and the movie getting made becomes thin. Highly underrated and under-appreciated to my thinking. Very funny but with some sharp edges.
