The Last Word

Overall this movie is terrible.  TERRIBLE.  But it does have two amazing things going for it.  1. Ray Romano.  Ray Romano is so, so good in this movie.  2. It also has what I would consider a genuinely, legitimately happy ending.  A no bullshit, no cheese happy ending for the skeptical, the disillusioned and the cranky at heart.

If you could edit this movie down to all the scenes with Ray and the ending, it would be breathtaking.  Instead you have to suffer through a lot of lousy, stilted, phony shit to get what is amazing.  It’s a lot like life, in that way.
