I have only seen the trailer, but The Last Kiss is yet another movie about a boring 30-year-old white guy (Zach Braff in the role he was born to play) who on the eve of his marriage to a hot chick sees an even hotter chick, which precipitates a quarter-life crisis that leads to lots of anguished looks, difficult decisions and crying in the rain.

Again, I haven't seen The Last Kiss but here are my general thoughts about "life affirming" movies like this appears to be. Taking a road trip doesn't make you a less conventional and more interesting person. Having an affair doesn't make you a less conventional and more interesting person. Running around naked in the desert doing drugs at Burning Man doesn't make you a less conventional and more interesting person. Being original makes you a less conventional and more interesting person. Make a movie about that.
