Last Chance Harvey is a 2008 film starring Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson.Currently, the best price on Amazon to buy this movie is $0.01, which pretty much sums it up. It is a dull, stereo-typical movie. Two completely different people fall in love. He breaks her heart, she gets really upset and won't talk to him, but yet, somehow, he makes it up to her. Hmmmmmmmm. Where have I seen this before? Uh...every romantic movie, ever? Bingo! Anyway, terrible and worth about $0.01

Harry (Hoffman) travels overseas for the wedding of his daughter (Liane Balaban), who announces she doesn’t want him to walk her down the aisle. Along with this news his job is hanging by a thread and his ex-wife (Kathy Baker) and her marvelous second husband (James Brolin) are running the festivities, much to Harry’s chagrin.
So, as you might imagine, Harry’s London adventure is a bit of a bummer, until he meets Kate (Thompson), a lonely airline worker who spends most of …
