We gave it a D

Only a director’s mother could love this amateurish effort about an estranged father and son who get a second chance through football. In Last Time Out, John Conrad plays Danny, a collegiate star drinking away his future. Christian Beck plays his father, a former college star (and fellow drunk) who tries to save his son by enrolling in college-and joining the team! Right on cue, the starting quarterback falls off the stadium roof and dies. Then Dad steps in and leads Danny’s team to glory. Silly as the story may sound, this tripe is served up in utter earnestness. If it weren’t so deadly dull, it might actually be funny. D
