It was a great movie that didn't get much publicity
If nothing else, The Last Word demonstrates that Shirley MacLaine still has the comic chops and screen presence that have made her a Hollywood legend.
Offering predictably heartfelt messages about seizing the day, The Last Word can be very sweet and funny, but its lightness starts to feel cloying rather than ebullient.
If you must make another entirely predictable comedy about an unapologetic old white curmudgeon who steamrolls all opposition, you can't do better than draft the redoubtable Shirley MacLaine to keep audiences in her barbed corner while we wait for her inevitable bittersweet humanization.

- In the background after Anne and Robin's date, the Highland Theater marquee show's 'Gods of Egypt' (released February 26, 2016), 'Deadpool' (released February 12, 2016), and 'Kung Fu Panda 3' (released January 29, 2016)
- At the end of the film, Harriet's gift to Anne is a pair of airline tickets to From LAX to Andalusia. Andalusia isn't a single city or airport. It's an autonomous region in southern Spain divided into eight provinces actually serviced by six different public airports, all of which can legally handle international flights. The Málaga Airport is the largest and busiest of these.
- Harriet: Please don't have a nice day. Have a day that matters... have a day that means something.
