Having seen the adverts for The Last Kiss, I realised that this definitely wasn't a Rom-Com. And seeing it, I realised it really isn't funny at all.
I find the story really touching, and the choice's that Zach Braff has to make are nothing but agonizing. I liked how the film shows that affairs are not always so simple. That it's not always intentional, the partner you're duping is not a bad person and that the person doing the cheating can be going through hell while trying to grab a piece of what they see is heaven.
I found it a bit hard going, as I literally wanted to shout "Don't do it!" at the screen. This film can be a little glum at times, but that's what affairs are. I think maybe this film has had poor reviews because it may be too true to life. It does not gloss over the hardships of failed / failing relationships. The presence of Zach Braff leads you into thinking that he will lead the cast with his usual sense of humour. This is not the case. Rachel Bilson played a good part, and I thought Casey Affleck was awesome.
This film touched me in a way that means I remembered the emotions long after I had finished watching.
A real heartfelt performance from all the cast, and a really touching and genuine piece of film, just don't hope to leave your own worries at the door!
