Format: DVD
Prime British actors, Michael Caine, Helen Mirren, and Bob Hoskins, give us utterly believable characters in this intricate story about the mourners of Jack Dodds, a butcher from Bermondsey, London.
Jack�s �last orders� come as a surprise to his family and friends, but nevertheless they respect his request and do him proud. The lifelong drinking partners of Jack set out from their local pub to the seaside resort of Margate to carry out his final wishes � that his ashes be scattered from the end of the pier.
The friends, an ex-boxer, a car salesman, an undertaker, and a betting man, take his ashes on a day trip to Margate to do the honors, using a showroom Mercedes to send Jack off in style. Along the way, they stop off at places significant in Jack�s history and their own heritage, plus a few pubs, and reflect on their relationships with Jack and his family, and on their own decisions in life.
Meanwhile, back in London, his wife dwells with her own compromises and choices as she visits their severely disabled daughter, a girl Jack never could accept.
Last Orders is a poignant and mostly gentle story of the people who have surrounded Jack Dodds during his adult life. The film is laced with flashbacks to earlier times and the long-ago causes of how their lives are inextricably tied together now. The complexity of these interwoven lives highlights the humor, tolerance, and interdependence necessary for successful life long bonds of family and friends.
This movie deals with universal human questions regarding life, death, personal faults and strengths, and what it all means, all wrapped up in a package of superb acting and a wholly satisfying story.

Format: DVD
Upon reaching a certain age, especially when a proper catalyst is provided, one may become wont to consider and reflect upon the life one has lived-- to take stock, as it were. And, without question, the death of a long-time, close friend or associate can effect such a catalysis, which is precisely what happens in "Last Orders," directed by Fred Schepisi, a drama that suggests that perhaps the end of a life can offer a valuable and renewed perspective to those who go on to write yet another chapter of their own in this great book we fondly know as the Human Comedy. Finally, it's about individual resolve and beginnings that can be found in endings, and the life therein reserved for those who may yet count themselves among the living.
Jack (Michael Caine), a working class butcher in London, planned one day to retire with his lovely wife, Amy (Helen Mirren), to the seaside hamlet of Margate. As often happens in life, however, Jack was denied the realization of his dream by the unbidden intervention of Fate, in the form of it's eternal emissary, The Grim Reaper. But Jack enters his everlasting sleep even as he lived his life, one step ahead of the other guy; and the attainment of his final wish begins with the consigning of his ashes to his three closest, life-long friends and his son, Vince (Ray Winstone), along with a request he adjures them as a group to honor. And so it is that Vince, Vic (Tom Courtenay), Lenny (David Hemmings), and Jack's best friend, Ray (Bob Hoskins), set out on a journey to effect the "Last orders" of their good friend, Jack; a journey that will take them into the future by way of the past, as they reflect upon what has gone before, and the possibilities that now lay ahead.

14 of 14 people found the following review helpful By Mary Whipple HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on September 30, 2004
Format: DVD
Three friends who have known Jack Dodds, a butcher, for almost fifty years, along with Jack's son Vince, meet at their local South London pub carrying a box containing Jack's ashes. Jack (Michael Caine) has died of heart failure, leaving a last request--that his ashes be cast off the Margate pier, several hours to the south of London. Ray (Bob Hoskins), a gambler; Vic (Tom Courtenay), an undertaker; Lenny (David Hemmings), a former prizefighter and heavy drinker; and Vince (Ray Winstone), Jack's son, a car dealer, set off for Margate in a Mercedes Benz that Vince has borrowed to honor the occasion.

As the men drive south, they reminisce about Jack, joke around, sing songs, irritate each other, and even threaten each other in the emotion of the moment. Director Fred Schepesi, who adapted the screenplay from the Booker Prize-winning novel by Graham Swift, alternates present scenes from the car with ironic scenes from Jack's life in the past, contrasting the deadness of the present trip to Margate with the liveliness of the past, showing the relationships among the various characters. Jack's wife Amy (Helen Mirren) has chosen not to come with them for the "ceremony." She is making her weekly visit to their mentally handicapped daughter June, now fifty, whom Jack has never accepted.

The nature of each man's relationship with Jack, with spouses and children, and with each other during World War II and after are all presented in flashback--from Vince's affair with Lenny's daughter, to Ray's relationship with Amy, and Jack's last minute bet with Ray to pay off a debt. As the men's relationships evolve onscreen, the viewer recognizes that these are the kinds of relationships that ordinary men spend their lives developing.
