THE LAST LAUGH
STARRING: Chevy Chase, Richard Dreyfuss
Get set for a nostalgia trip on more than one level as Dreyfuss and Chase play retired comedian Buddy Green and his former agent, Al Hart (respectively), who decide to give stand-up one last whirl instead of rotting away in a retirement community. As they hit the road, Buddy finds his old rhythm, while Al has his eye on an even bigger achievement: getting his client on The Tonight Show. Ticking along at a gentle pace befitting its mature cast, Laugh hammers home its never-too-late theme with a high quotient of schmaltz. (On Netflix from Fri., Jan. 11)
Andie Macdowell plays a love interest for Chase’s (right) character.
