Movie Review – The Last Laugh (2019)

The Last Laugh, 2019.

Directed by Greg Pritikin.

Starring Richard Dreyfuss, Chevy Chase, Andie MacDowell, Lewis Black, Kate Micucci and Chris Parnell.

Synopsis:

When retired talent manager Al Hart is reunited with his first client, Buddy Green, a comic who quit show business 50 years ago, he convinces Buddy to escape their retirement community and hit the road for a cross-country comedy tour.

The beginning of the year is always a quiet period for new releases beyond the usual 2018 stragglers, and with these cold winter months making a trip to the cinema less-than-inviting, even the most unambitious Netflix offering can seem mightily appealing. As such, The Last Laugh certainly doesn’t reinvent the old man road movie, but it is a comforting, warm blanket of a film which lives and dies on the charms of its two aged stars.

'The Last Laugh': Film Review

It took cojones for Chevy Chase — forever and always holiday-roading patriarch Clark Griswold — to star in a remake of F.W. Murnau's monumental 1924 silent The Last Laugh. Oh, wait. That's not what this is? An original story by writer-director Greg Pritikin, you say, about a retired talent manager, Al Hart (Chase), who hits the road with a former client, Buddy Green (Richard Dreyfuss), to rekindle their glory days? Ok, well, at least Murnau won't be rolling over in his grave with Emil Jannings.

Viewers' eyes will spin in their sockets, however, from the first ...

Netflix's The Last Laugh Trailer Unites Chevy Chase and Richard Dreyfuss

Netflix has debuted the first trailer for their original comedy The Last Laugh. The movie stars Chevy Chase, Richard Dreyfuss, Andie MacDowell, Lewis Black, Kate Micucci, and Chris Parnell. It was first announced in September of last year when it was revealed that Chase and Dreyfuss were on board to star and that Netflix was going to distribute it. The Last Laugh was written and directed by Greg Pritikin, while Rob Paris of Paris Film, Inc was on board to produce the project.

The Last Laugh centers on a talent manager and widower, played by Chevy Chase, who ends up reuniting with a former client, who gave up a promising career as a stand-up comedian and instead settled down to have a family and became a podiatrist. The two reunite unexpectedly at a retirement home and decide to leave and start a bucket list tour of classic stand-up venues across the United States.

New TV Spot for Movie 43 reveals cameos from Seth MacFarlane & More

  • HeyUGuys
The anticipated ensemble comedy Movie 43 hits theatres next weekend, and with possibly the biggest and best assembled cast of all time, we didn’t think things could get much bigger or better. But this latest TV spot reveals something that makes it that much more of a must-see comedy: Seth MacFarlane.

We were treated to a great new TV spot yesterday, giving us sixty seconds of comedy goodness, and this new TV spot brings with it new footage aplenty, including a look at Seth MacFarlane, Common, Dennis Quaid, and Greg Kinnear, with the involvement of all four being until-now unannounced. Which begs the question, do we have more surprises in store for us when Movie 43 lands next week?

  • HeyUGuys
With probably the biggest and best ensemble cast ever assembled, we’ve got a lot to look forward to with the release of Movie 43 next weekend.

All we’ve seen from the film so far suggests it’s going to be comedy gold (leprechaun pun not intended), with the latest two TV spots surfacing last week. And now Momentum have released another spot, giving us 60 seconds of Movie 43 goodness.

“Once you see it, you can’t unsee it.

From the twisted minds of producers Peter Farrelly (Hall Pass, Shallow Hal) and Charles Wessler (There’s Something About Mary, Dumb & Dumber), comes Movie 43– the outrageous new ensemble comedy starring some of the biggest names in Hollywood. Movie 43 is not for the easily-offended and contains jaw-dropping, sometimes shockingly disturbing, but always entertaining intertwined storylines you’ll have to see to believe.”

The brilliant cast is led by Elizabeth Banks,

With quite possibly the biggest and best ensemble cast of any comedy ever made, Movie 43 has a lot of potential for the New Year.

Due out at the tail-end of January in the Us, we’ve seen enough from the film already – most recently with a new red-band preview – to suggest it’s going to be a lot of fun, and now EW have debuted a new poster, featuring the friendly faces of just a small selection of its fantastic cast.

Movie 43 has by far one of the best ensemble casts of any comedy in recent memory, and more than that, it has a terrific roster of directors at the helm for what promises to be a brilliant comedy in the New Year.

We most recently saw the film’s green-band trailer last month, and now Yahoo Movies have debuted a new red-band preview, which is, as you can imagine, highly unsuitable for work.
