How long will paint last in can?

I am doing some painting this weekend and have a quick question:

I have some flat & satin paint left over from painting my living room and was wondering if I can use them for my project this weekend. The paint is 1 1/2 yrs old, and has been tightly sealed in the can since it was last used.

In case it matters, the paint is American Traditions from Lowes.

If the paint has never froze, it should be fine. If you open it and it smells 'skunky', then its shot.
