Good idea with bad execution
23 January 2019 | by williamjpenfoldSee all my reviews

Chevy Chase should not be the lead in a movie like this. There were numerous times where the camera would follow him around looking dazed for no particular reason. The script is rather flat and the direction is all over the place. This is a film that cried out for a strong director to take control.

Compare this film to the vastly superior The Kominsky Method starring Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin and you will see what The Last Laugh could have been..
