    The cast are frivolously hilarious, while the story itself drags on like most comedy-dramas, into a very typical cheesy friendship story. But film has its moments, extremely funny moments, mostly contributed to the Oscar quartet. It is far from the hangover, but it's more mature and more meaningful. Cheesy, but in a good way.

    Wasted talents for this movie. Predictable, bored, cliche, easy jokes. The names didn´t make any difference for the development of the movie. Everything solves really easy at the end.

Almost all of the jokes rely on old age insults with lots of trite heartfelt hogwash to make it heartwarming. While it's fun to watch these stars poke fun at their age and there's energy in the filmmaking, this is a pretty tame comedy. Expand

    Take "The Bucket List" meets "The Hangover" and you have your surprisingly entertaining movie. While the movie is kind of stale, it's actors Michael Douglas, Robert DeNero, Kevin Kline and especially Morgan Freeman that make this movie worth the while. It has an interesting story base for old people and really just tries to give the audience a good time.

    The old folks jokes get old after awhile. But the laughs supersede them and just for that, this film is worth the price of admission. Hope there is a sequel somewhere down the line.

    This is a fun movie. These guys have great chemistry. I've been describing it as your Grandparents version of The Hangover but it's a lot more than that. It's got a great message about friendship and all these actors are awesome. It's got a couple laughs but I think the target audience just isn't there and we could have done without it.

    It's a funny enough movie with four great stars bringing the entertainment. I do feel like the film's more emotional moments do fall flat, and the romance is entirely predictable, but I had fun with it. There are plenty of laugh worthy moments and it does well playing off of it's star's ages.

    First question... why? Why did they have to do this?
    I will try to remember these really good actors for the great movies they've done and not for this one.
    Ok it's not totally boring but it's predictable and not funny and it looks like a tons of other movies, I'll give it a 5 only because you can still see some (really short) good moments of acting.

    Seeing prominent actors being reduced to a clichéd plot line makes the movie somewhat underwhelming, but it ultimately is a decent film that manages to have some funny moments.

    Much anticipated, it could have been an excellent ensemble but just pays off just average and forgettable. It has a few good laughs and nice chemistry.

    I didn’t find “Last Vegas” to be absolutely horrible—far from it. The jokes may be predictable and very formulaic but Douglas, De Niro, Freeman and Kline are all terrific together and really have a chemistry that works and makes them believable in their roles as old friends. However, the story gets really corny towards the end and takes away from the little humor the film gives you atI didn’t find “Last Vegas” to be absolutely horrible—far from it.

    Some have said that this movie is nothing but a geriatric remake of The Hangover, but that just sort of cheapens the hangover. This is very pedestrian and while the performances of the actors are great, there isn’t much happening here. It’s not very edgy and kind of falls flat. One thing I do know, my mother, god rest her soul, would have loved this film.

    While it’s as tacky and obvious as Sin City itself, this comedy is watchable thanks to a lively pace and spirited turns from Kline and Steenburgen. An unabashed old-timers’ fantasy.

    Last Vegas is a good-natured bimbo of a movie, it'll do just about anything to please you, though luckily that includes delivering the 20 big laughs you feel you're owed (unlike The Hangovers), and gently jerking a tear or two. You enjoy it in spite of yourself.

    It has the sensibilities of a late-'80s/early-'90s forgettable big-screen sit com and probably won't find many interested viewers who aren't card-carrying AARP members.
