Storyline

The Last Hurrah is a comedy filmed in a single continuous shot. Set at a graduation party in Los Angeles, an eclectic group of brainy philosophy students, train-hopping hippies, aspiring prophets, and drug-addled hipsters come together for one wild night. At the eye of the storm are three best friends, all with the same problem - women. Jason can't get enough of them, Steve can't let go of the one he's got, and Will can't understand them at all. The brainy grad students will have to work through their issues fast, because tonight's house party is their last crack at the women of the philosophy department. Written by Anonymous

The Last Hurrah is in my opinion the final evolution of the college party movie
20 May 2009 | by textmyphoneSee all my reviews

The Last Hurrah is in my opinion the final evolution of the college party movie, a group of philosophy majors have one last graduation party filled with sarcastic comedic introspection. This film has Carl Jung as a punch line, come on how you can argue with Carl Jung quotes, not Fredrick Nietzsche or Freud its Jung and its very funny. This is a high brow, lofty script with quotes and banter from many famous philosophers and their great truths and untruths that keep pouring out from this small film like the tap on a keg of beer at the usual collage festivities. This is their Last Hurrah and this entire ensemble cast has some great lines that would to be expected as the characters try to outdo each other as only a group of philosophy majors can. This film is shot like a play with the camera floating around from different conversations with some great well placed music. My favorite line in the film is from Nicole (Valerie Azlynn) she says "Civilization would break down if woman threw themselves at men, if we want you guys to keep building bridges, and highways, and …septic tanks we need to keep are legs closed some of the time…" .Author Matthew Willey @ Bickthrewglass.com
