The Last Kiss

Tt0434139_largeCover Madison, Wisconsin is the stamping ground for a group of generation Z twentysomethings to test their underdeveloped moral codes. Michael (Zach Braff) gets caught in an emotional whirlpool when his high maintenance live-in girlfriend Jenna (Jacinda Barrrett) announces she’s 10 weeks pregnant at a dinner with Michael and her parents. Michael, in turn, allows himself to be seduced by a needy college sophomore (Rachel Bilson) just to insure that Jenna’s irrational emotional outbursts have some merit. Paul Haggis ("Crash") adapted the script from Gabriele Muccino’s film "L’Ultimo bacio" (2001), and the consequence is a distinctly white bread romantic comedy sprinkled with brief flashes of modern-day American existentialist dread.

Rated R. 103 mins. (C) (Two Star)
