3.0 out of 5 stars Money can't buy everything 10 Feb 2012
Format:DVD
Jason Behr puts in a sensitive performance as a writer made wealthy through inheritance rather than ability, and depicts how, despite his money and hedonistic lifestyle, he still can't find happiness in life. He takes a liking to a small girl and is more open and honest with her than with anyone else, as a kindred spirit who epitomizes the innocent childhood that clearly he was too spoilt to appreciate. He realises he has strong feelings for his best friend, but only after she announces that she is getting married to someone else. Nothing over dramatic, just easy viewing of one person's interesting journey trying desperately to find purpose in his life and persuade the woman he loves to come back to him.

As a movie this is not bad, but not really one to rush out for either.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Independent Film 4 Mar 2011
By Daniel G. Lebryk - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The Last International Playboy was nothing that I expected, it was different and better. I expected to see a film with a Pierce Brosnan look-alike or the Dos Equis "most interesting man in the world" romping around being international and womanizing. Instead I was greeted with a small independent film that looked more at love that could have or should have been. In the end, a film I enjoyed much more than the one I expected.

The film has a shaky start, the editing is choppy and different from the rest of the film (according to the director commentary, this montage was in fact reshot long after they wrapped the film). The opening is of Jack on a yacht with model girl friends everywhere, of which he chooses one for sex, another joins, and the rest have a "pillow" fight on the bed in their panties. Rough start for a film about love. The five minute opening montage cuts away to Jack in bed and a subtitle flashing forward seven years. The story took another ten minutes to really come alive. Once I got to know Jack well and his eleven year old neighbor came into the story, the film started to make sense.

In a nutshell, Jack wrote a very successful book and is now living the life of a rock star. But he longs for his childhood girlfriend and his deceased mother. The attraction of all the models to Jack is simple, he has a ton of money and they are attracted to that. The confusing part of this film is the eleven year old girl that spends time privately with Jack and no parental agreement around (this is the only part of the film that I did not buy). His pig friend, Scotch Evans, is not complicated either, Jack is a nurturer and Scotch fills that bill.

As a small independent film, this is a good one. It is fairly well shot with steady camera work and decent lighting. At times the dialog was hard to hear, so sound recording was not the absolute best. Once I got past the opening montage (which is repeated behind the credits at the end of the film), the editing was good and had just the right pace. At roughly an hour and a half, it is about the right length.

The film is rated R for nudity, strong language, and drug use. The women in this film are gorgeous, the opening and closing scenes are stimulating. Lucy Gordon (Jane Birkin in the film Gainsbourg) was perfectly cast as the magazine journalist, Kate. Krysten Ritter plays a drug crazed model / actress wonderfully. And Monet Mazur, the blonde on the cover, as Carolina is stunning. This would have been a nearly perfect film if it hadn't been for the overweight Scotch sitting in his underwear in the bathtub asking Jack for a hug. Aside from the opening and closing, there isn't a lot of nudity in this film; the director packed it in tightly. The strong language is a bit surprising when used toward and in front of the eleven year old girl, Sophie. That seemed a bit over the top, or not entirely appropriate. There is a lot of drinking in this film, as I fully expected. There is a scene where Ozzy is shown in the bathroom with a syringe, lighter, and what appears to be heroine.

The DVD is packed with some decent special features. A set of deleted scenes that were mostly poorly lit, and should have stayed out of the film. I would have appreciated the bathtub scene with Scotch being added to the deleted scenes. The director commentary is one of the better I've heard in a while. I like to hear about the difficulties independent directors face in making a film.

Overall, excusing the first fifteen minutes of this film, I enjoyed this film very much. It was not at all what I expected. By the end of the film I found that I liked and cared for Jack and Sophie.

5.0 out of 5 stars loved this movie 7 Jun 2010
By Jean - Published on Amazon.com
This film was named "Frost" at some point. It's a beautiful gem of a movie in a low budget independent film style. Illegal gorilla filming in New York City at its best. Jason Behr gives a beautifully understated and charming performance in the role of the ultimate NYC playboy who spins into a self-destructive cycle after learning that his childhood love and best friend is engaged. An old storyline that is given a completely fresh rewrite for this movie while avoiding the usual cliche ending. An especially lovely and endearing performance by his 11-year-old neighbor Sophie (India Ennenga) while helping Jack Frost (Behr), who has been living a Peter Pan lifestyle for 7 years complete with Tinkerbell, overcome the nostalgia and excess that may sink him. There were cultural and literary references, classic movie quotes that I loved, too. If that's not enough to pique your interest, then the opening sex romp scene with naked models should do it. Nothing offensive, just kind of joyful, playful. Loved the film.

3.0 out of 5 stars Living A Charmed Life In New York. 14 Jan 2011
By J. Aguilar - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this Movie after seeing the trailer online, after looking for more Movies with Krysten Ritter (the best friend in Shes Out Of My League) she plays Ozzy a likable drug addict model in this Movie, ironically I just seen Whirly Girl 2 days ago with Monet Mazur a surprisingly good movie (the catalyst for all the drama in this movie), Jack Frost (Jason Behr) a writer nice guy living a charmed life in New York after once writing a book inspired by his childhood friend and love Carolina (Monet Mazur), who is getting married to his displeasure, falls into some self induced melodrama over his heart break, but gets it together with the help of a charming 11 year old neighbor Sophie (India Ennenga) who dispenses the wisdom of a mature adult (yeah we seen this character before in other movies).

The Last International Playboy dvd aspect ratio:1.77:1 stinks, but this movie has a good look visually, good music (I love the Dresden Dolls), If you can get over the believability factor, some good performances by India Ennenga (11 year old), Krysten Ritter (ozzy), Jason Behr (Jack Frost), Mike Landry (Scotch Evans) and Lucy Gordon (Kate Hardwick) in this case the acting was better than the material.

I never believed that a grown single man could have this type of relationship with a 11 year old girl who he isn't related to, who's parents never seem to be around, in this day and age of American heighten awareness of child predators, unfortunately true.

I never believed nice guy Jack Frost would be friends with Scotch Evans (Mike Landry) an obnoxious, chauvinist looser.

I can see how women would be attracted to Jack Frost, seemingly successful, good looking, nice guy, but not particularly charismatic enough to have 5 or so women romping around half naked in his bed.

Last, Its hard to be empathetic to Jack Frosts self induced melodrama when he leads such a charmed life.

This movie is like Prozac Nation for single men, boo hoo, I have it so hard.

This is one of JasonBehr's most fantastic film's yet! Well made, funny, keep's you guessing, and just can't get enough of Behr. The idea behind things his character has to go through are heartwarming and endearing to Jason's trek in life. WELL WORTH WATCHING!!! jane a bailey
