Thoughts on Last Call

ThoughtsLast Call is a comedy about remembering who was once important in life, taking a walk back down memory lane around the people they grew up with. This does everything you would expect a film that focuses on finding your meaning in life, be it being around friends or family, or successful. The cast do have great chemistry, showing us the true banter they have been through life on, with each one of the group having their own quirks and individuality about them. This is based on the real story of the area and how the community would come together for the right thing. With most of the comedy never hitting the heights in truly wants too.

Final Thoughts Last Call is an easy to watch comedy that will get a message over, while giving us an entertaining group of people to watch.
