The Last Thing He Told Me

I saw the trailer for The Last Thing He Told Me and thought it looked cool, a good friend of my wife’s said that she loved the book it’s based on so I was excited to check this out. Plus, I am a big Jennifer Garner fan, I think she is very underrated and, since I saw Alias, I have liked most of the stuff she has been in.

The Movie Review

Speaking of Alias, a fun bit of trivia about The Last Thing He Told Me is that Victor Garber has an appearance in this show and he played the dad to Jennifer Garner’s character in Alias. I wish I could tell you that the whole show was as much fun as that little bit of trivia, but this show just fell flat for me.

The plot of The Last Thing He Told Me revolves around Jennifer Garner’s Hanna Hall whose husband, Owen has gone missing, but he managed to get a note to her that says “protect her”. This is a pretty epic setup and the whole mystery about who Owen really is was something that I thought was pretty neat and had a great deal of potential.

The “her” that he wanted to be protected was his teenage daughter, Bailey. The thing is, Baily is a typical teenager and wants nothing to do with her stepmom. Actually, in the first few episodes, Bailey (played by Angourie Rice) has a really obnoxious bratty personality and I had a hard time warming up to her.

Of course, Bailey and Hannah trying to come together is kind of what the show is about, as they try and figure out who Owen really is. Again, as a premise, this is fantastic and I love a good mystery, especially one that has some family drama mixed in for good measure, but this show just did not click with me at all.

As I said, I am a big Jennifer Garner fan, I think that 99/100 she is great in most stuff that she is in. Sadly, this is not one of her best performances and to be fair, I do think a lot of that is down to the script and the flow of the show. She is all over the place and most of the time has this rather confused look on her face that started to bug me if I am being honest.

I did not straight up hate the show, but an indication of how much I liked it is that I was so thankfully it was only seven episodes long! The thing is, even though seven episodes is not a lot, I think that this show would have been so much better if it has been five episodes, six at the extreme most. The pacing is just so slow and it feels like a lot of the stuff is there just to pad the length out, like they had to get to seven episodes.

I have certainly seen worse shows than The Last Thing He Told Me, but I was still quite disappointed with this. To be fair, I have not read the book so I am not sure how faithful it is and I have yet to hear my wife’s friend’s thoughts on it in this regard. I feel like there could be a good show in here and maybe I just was not in the right frame of mind to watch it. Check out the trailer and if you like the look of it, give it a try.

  • The plot is very dragged out
  • This is not one of Jennifer Garner's best performances
