Last Kiss, The
Source: Catholic News Service
Uneven drama set in Wisconsin about four friends, each at emotional crossroads as they near 30, focusing mostly on an architect (Zach Braff) with commitment jitters whose fling with a college student (Rachel Bilson) jeopardizes his relationship with his pregnant girlfriend (Jacinda Barrett), whose own parents' (Blythe Danner and Tom Wilkinson) marriage has gone sour. In holding up a mirror to postmodern love and its accompanying anxieties, director Tony Goldwyn provides some modest observations about flawed humanity -- especially the way we learn from our mistakes and how actions have consequences -- but, on a whole, the situations are contrived and the characters read as more selfish than sympathetic. Several racy sexual encounters, some with partial nudity, lesbian eroticism with partial nudity, a tacit approval of premarital living arrangements, a gay sight gag, much rough and crude language, scattered profanity, some sexual humor and brief drug content. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
