The Last Kiss doesn’t come in last

There are some movies that make you laugh, cry and unbelievably angry. And if its a good movie, it has the ability to make you feel all three. The Last Kiss, starring Zach Braff, Jacinda Barrett and Rachel Bilson, is one of those movies. This Garden State-like film is perfect for college students and anyone in their 20s and 30s.

The film follows Michael (Braff), and his group of 29 year old friends who try to cope with relationships and kids. Michael, a prominent architect, is content with his girlfriend and the arrival of his first child. But as the movie progresses, he is worried that his entire life is mapped out for him, and that there are no surprises left. Then a typical college tease appears, Kim, played by Rachel Bilson. Bilsons performance proved that she is ready to leave Orange County and move to the big screen.

Although the ending left a lot to be desired, the movie itself was well produced and features an amazing soundtrack. This is definitely a movie for anyone, whether its a night out with the girls or the guys.
