Clever, Original

See it if Are willing to see an original play in a non-traditional space.

Don't see it if Want to see something flashy and elaborately staged.

"Schmidt nicely captures the language of the locker room, mixing bromides with a steady stream of jargon about matchups and defensive schemes...But 'Our Last Game' falls flat.
