“Entertaining, thought-provoking…Pearlstein’s very deft assembly manages to raise all these ideas and others for viewer consideration while underlining that there are few, if any, definitive responses to them."
- Dennis Harvey, Variety

“Pearlstein’s film doesn't only examine the issue from those with a microphone, but through Holocaust survivors who add a deeper dimension to the film: humor as a necessary survival tool.…By seeking humor in the darkest dark, The Last Laugh gets at the intrinsic nature of comedy.”
- Jake Coyle, Associated Press

“Funny and sobering at the same time.”
- Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter
