THE LAST LAUGH

STAR­RING: Chevy Chase, Richard Drey­fuss

WHO - - The List -

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.
