Dont Waste Your Time .

Worth watching just for them alone.

First off the movie is predictable.

If you want a movie with a good story, a lovely entertaining cast and a good soundtrack thesis's Christmas movie for you.

There was very little plot in the second half and it didn't grab me emotionally.

boring dialog...

In short, I will never watch this film again and begrudge the fact that on one of our very rare nights out, having hired a babysitter, I ended up watching this point scoring predicable dross that seemed more preachy than entertaining.

Due to the unexpected twist at the end the results of the jury: one cried, one fell asleep, 3x a 7 (the girls), 2x a 6.

And the film was just slow and clunky for me.

I enjoyed the story, but it was quite predictable.

I loved how this movie took it's original idea of a cheerful colorful Christmas film and put in some important issues that are happening in the world and the sadness and fear that some people feel even around the most cheerful time of the year, I was actually surprised to see how smoothly that went without making anyone defensive or uncomfortable it's not just a normal Christmas cringey film it's more than that, I highly recommend it, just watch closely.

Actually enjoyable some spoilers .

Something's don't make too much sense, there are a few miss hit jokes, but mostly, it was an enjoyable watch, even if I was the only man in a cinema with about 30 women.

Great story with an unexpected ending.

The cast was good and the twist really made the film worth watching.

Well my wish came true in the form of acting, with all the leads making for an entertaining, dysfunctional group.

Entertaining Christmas Themed Musical With Thoughtful Performances .

If you're bored and want to get into the Christmas spirit, go see it.

To be a little more specific about what makes this movie a grievance to humanity, let me explain things concisely: There are a migraine-inducing number of plot holes, the factual inaccuracies will make you weep, and it was as predictable as the sun rising in the east.

It was kind of cheesy with a predictable and depressing storyline.

You could almost think director Paul Feig felt the same way of how bad things were by punching in a pedestrian, plodding camera placements hampered by unnecessary quick cross-cutting editing.

What a waste of my time.

Watching Clarke bumble around is endearing enough for the first half or so but it wears thin quickly and the predictable story line does little to keep things interesting.

The film does contain a plot twist, but it is somewhat predictable.

Together I think they make quite a stunning pair.

Could be one of the worst movies I've seen.

I really enjoyed it.

I took my wife to this movie expecting to sleep but actually enjoyed it.

The worst movie I've seen for a very long time.

I am so 😞 that this movie was so plain and boring.

It has humor , it has tears , it has an unexpected twist at the end and is definitely worth seeing .

We really enjoyed it much more than expected!

Rather sweet, but rushed and predictable .

The supporting cast are all brilliantEmilia portrayal is both convincing and incredibly amusing, and comes across as someone we've all known, fun, unpredictable, and a personal bad decision maker.

Anyways, I was quite happy to leave the theater liking the movie.

His romantic development between him and Emilia Clarke was fascinating and lovely to see.

Unexpected Ending .

It's quite a stagnant plot to me from the beginning but I'm glad to have such an unexpected and touching ending.

If, like me, you can also appreciate movies that are simply sweet and entertaining and leave you feeling uplifted at the end, this is one to see.

I personally found this movie a very enjoyable charming little movie.

But if it doesn't bother you, you may be very forgiving of it's predictable nature as it's still an easy sit.

It was also unforgivably tiresome.

This is a very sweet movie that moves in very unexpected ways.

This atmosphere of feeling good compliments all the previous mentioned likes and somehow gave me some energy to stay immersed in the film.

It was a little confusing how the pace and tone of the movie seemed to change and switch gears.

literally nothing happened to lead to that.

Let's get the negatives out of the way first: the first half of the movie is pretty dull and mediocre, the music doesn't always fit the scene, the comedy is more miss than hit and the movie is full of cliches.

It's entertaining and funny with likeable characters.

Trite and insincere, "Last Christmas" is a cloying cup of holiday sneer.

I really wanted to like this movie but ended up yawning through the whole thing.

It's like a camera going off focus then on focus, sometimes just confusing.

The story is weak and terribly boring, not to mention completely predictable.

Don't waste your money on this dross.

It has all the necessary elements for a romcom but also an amazing and unexpected plot twist, and Emilia Clark is radiant as main character Kate.

For me, the first 2/3 of the movie was too slow & Emilia's character was more annoying than likeable.

Otherwise, a total waste of time and money.

I could predict most of the events from the movie, which made it get boring after a while.

That's the unexpected back narrative of Director Paul Feig's "Last Christmas", his romantic comedy from the screenplay by Emma Thompson and Bryony Kimmings.

It made the film pointless and confusing and Made Emilia clarkes charecter completely insane.

To date the worst movie I have ever seen at the cinema.

I don't exactly "like" it that much, but I still left the theater happy and reasonably entertained.

I think the films major third act is predictable early on and I kind of saw the events coming.

I wouldn't recommend going to this movie and waste your money.

Still worth watching though.

With a terrible plot and bland acting to match and the ridiculous nod on Brexit, this film fails.

Different direction for a romantic comedy which was enjoyable.

In addition to the twist, every single subplot is closed like nothing happened.

This story lines, not funny, farcical plots, uninspiring dialogue and Emma Thompson absurd in that role frankly.

Overall, enjoyable characters and an enjoyable movie.

The acting was appalling, it was an incredibly cliche story line with no redeemable features.

It told a story I had expected but the way they put everything together made it worth watching.

We enjoyed it.

She's humorous and just watching her life fall apart with her poor decision making is pretty entertaining.

Terribly terribly boring .

Man pick, and we only lased 40 minutes and walked out.

Went into this exciting a slightly rom-com tear jerker.

The positives on the other hand are: Emilia Clarke is fantastic as always and she has an amazing singing voice, the acting is really good, the "twist" of the movie was unexpected and very sad and effective, the song "last Christmas" is beautiful and the ending is heartfelt, sorrow and satisfying.

One of the worst movies I've seen in a long time .

Really unexpected twist which made me sad.

Unexpected surprise of a film .

I enjoyed it.

The film was absolutely funny and interesting with totally unexpected end of a plot.

Fell asleep .

I thought the film was decent, entertaining when it needs to be but it goes through predictable cliches.

In the film she is stunning,funny,warm vulnerable and very relatable.

Save your money people.

Not the worst movie ever, but quite ho-hum.

I did find the movie to be kind of slow and boring for most of the first hour.

Lastly the cinema photography for this move was was a visual treat for the eyes..and george michael's music made it a treat for the ears, the ending credit visuals and music were particularly wonderful.


As the whole film was a self-contained cliché, it seems quite appropriate to describe it as a Christmas turkey to be avoided like the plague.

Overall, everything felt forced and cliche in this movie, even Henry Golding's charisma could not save it.

If it had turned out to just be that bland as beige love story I would've actually strangled myself...

The movie got very good the last time 30 minutes but before the twist it was bland.

For me romantic comedies have to be good or they just become yet another cliche!

You wont catch many comparing this film to JOKER ;)All in all, an enjoyable, easy to watch Christmas film.

The story is bland, with a bit of politics thrown in, as if Ben Elton wasn't doing this thirty years ago.

Really A Very Enjoyable Movie .

Last Christmas, it'll give you plenty of heart, but the very next day, it may be a tad predictable .

I would've wanted for the film to explore more of the other subplots that it had because they were compelling subplots, and I thought the resolution didn't fully capture all of it.

Last Christmas is an enjoyable rom com, don't get me wrong.

The story was so cliche and try-hard.

I won't say much because I don't want to spoil it, but it is a lovely christmas movie worth watching.

It made me laugh, cry and it was entertaining from start to finish, who cares if the dates are wrong and the accent is off ?

"Last Christmas" was fun, entertaining, heart warming, and thought provoking.

It wasnt overly sappy and filled with sex scenes like the regular theater movies and even with people spoiling the "plot twist" it was still well worth the watch!

Was really cheesy and very predictable.

The plot is insanely predictable and all secondary story lines never lead to anything.

I really enjoyed it.

The plot itself was banal, the acting bland, and some of the scripting was stereotypical to the point of being racist.

Plus with Emilia Clarke and Emma Thompson comes 2 very entertaining and well portrayed characters that had me laughing with tears by the end of it.

A Virtue Signalling predictable mess of a film.

The twist was really predictable as I had a feeling in the 2nd act that one of the charcthers was a ghost the entire time.

A too early romantic Christmas comedy with a predictable plot twist.

Completely predictable, and the only parts that were laughable were the ones where it was by no means meant to be funny, it just happened to be that way by the movie goers making fun of said movie.

May not be for everyone judging on the other reviews, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

The twist was too predictable and most (though not all) of the jokes fell flat.

and Emma Thompson was enjoyable as Kate's mother.

What an absolutely horrible waste of time and money I won't get back.

London looked nice, but what a dull story.

Slow pace, fairly predictable love story plot.

A couple next to me left in the middle of the film, I couldn't blame them.

Fairly Predictable .

While the twist in the end does make the film very unpredictable which hits the film at an emotional level.

Worth the watch .

When he first appears, acting bizarrely, you think, "oh, there must be some fascinating backstory between these two - a murky past they are trying to rekindle".

Also probably one the most predictable plot twists ever, so predictable that literally thousands of people pointed it out after the first trailer.

though the premise is predictable, the gentle touch that it uses to handle mental health issues, addiction and empathy are a rarity...

All the love scenes are so cheesy and bland that it makes you want to strangle yourself with some Christmas fairy lights.

Last Christmas is a fine rom com to watch for an enjoyable time.

There are no spoilers in this review, so I can't tell you how the movie handles Kate's transformation, from a total mess at the beginning of the film, to someone we can take to heart at the end, but I found the plot device to be quite poignant, and I left the theater with tears rolling down my face.

Don't waste your money.

What a wonderful film Last Christmas is, Emilia Clarke and Henry Golding are stunning actors, The film has loads of laughs, Beautiful Cinematography and also made me cry!

Last Christmas is a romantic comedy film that follows its cliché roots about a young woman who does not have much luck until she meets a guy which she falls for.

Funny, corny, stupid, romantic, heartbreaking, heartwarming, disjointed, somewhat predictable and weird....

Thompson was oddly funny and entertaining in her role as Kate's mother.

I am dumbfounded how this is even considered a good movie, the screenplay, script and characters are so bland and the story is so preposterously stupid I came out of the cinema speechless at how shocking this movie truly was.

I find the more UNpredictable the movie, the less satisfying because who wants to watch a whole bunch of random scenarios happen in one movie?

However as the film went into its second half the humour for me went stale and got very repetitive.

It is exciting now that show is over to see which roles she will undertake in the coming years.

Enjoyable Christmas film with an interesting twist .

It's a lovely story with an unexpected twist.

It has a couple of exciting downwards slopes and tight turns, but most of it is a slow ride with nothing truly thrilling or astonishing.

However two problems i had were how predictable it was and its pacing issues.

Aside from the annoying soundtrack, the movie itself is pretty boring.

Its not a bad film, I highly enjoyed it and was entertained and if they wanted a twist, they shouldn't have done this specific twist.

The most boring, predictable, soppy, tear-jerker of a movie ever!!!!!

Don't waste your money.

You are very boring.

Save your money.

Worth watching film .

Enjoyable .

Just be willing to be okay with the slower aspects.

Be prepared for laughter and tears, as unexpected happenings keep arriving.


A Cliché-Ridden Christmas Turkey - Avoid Like the Plague .

a classic cliché : the selfish person matures and at the end is very caring and giving.

I've watched it after long day at work, and it was unexpected, refreshing, very good scenario, took me through many kinds of emotions.

An unexpected sweet surprise .


The problem though was that at those points it felt a little empty, so they did kind of need him in the story.

Worst movie I've seen in a long time.

However, the dialogue is cringey more often than not, some of the supporting performances feel mailed in, and the plot is as predictable as you think after seeing the trailer.

There are some moments in this film that are painfully reminiscent of other films in the rom-com lexicon, but there's a consistent charm here throughout, more earnest than contrived.

On the upside, the side plot of "Santa" and "Boy" is fun and the sound track contains some entertaining classics.

That, the terrible acting, the boring story, the numerous clichés, the completely unbelievable "diversity", and of course, the really bad plot....

Still a cozy movie though and worth watching.

Just another boring, dumb romantic drama garbage that has every possible cliches.

Emilia Clarke has done an amazing job at portraying her character with some health and life challenges before something unexpected happens to her characters life for it to change completely.

Dreadfully dull .

I was in awe, as it has an unpredictable ending.
