  • Summary: Last Vegas tells the story of Billy, Paddy, Archie and Sam, best friends since childhood. When Billy, the group's sworn bachelor, finally proposes to his thirty-something (of course) girlfriend, the four head to Las Vegas with a plan to stop acting their age and relive their glory days. However, upon arriving, the four quickly realize that the decades have transformed Sin City and tested their friendship in ways they never imagined. The Rat Pack may have once played the Sands and Cirque du Soleil may now rule the Strip, but it's these four who are taking over Vegas. [CBS Films] Expand

    Last Vegas is an entertaining movie with a lot of integrity, and it gives all of its actors - all heavyweights and Oscar winners - real moments to dig in and play something.

    Nostalgia counts a lot and needs to, with this sitcom-level material and Jon Turteltaub's uninspired direction.

    It’s the actors, plus an exuberant Mary Steenburgen as quick-witted lounge singer Diana, who make the movie more than a middling copycat.

    Yes, it's uneven, more jokes miss than hit, and it winds up taking easy dramatic shortcuts from the more interesting avenues that the script presents, but it's thanks to the lead quartet that the comedy is as engaging at it is.

    The film at least achieves the level of mediocrity thanks to the professionalism of two slightly younger participants — Kline and Mary Steenburgen, who also have Oscars on their mantels but go well beyond phoning it in here.

    Though coming off at times like Adam Sandler’s “Grown-ups,” only with Oscar winners, Last Vegas is a genial little comedy for the crowd it’s intended for.

    The film is depressing, sub-sitcom fodder that will dull whatever affection you may still harbor for these legendary actors.

    Fantastic funny film - it's for more of an older audience, which is why it has some low reviews, as the youngsters today .... Blah blah lol. but I couldn't stop laughing - although my 22 yr old son watched it too and he was collapsed with some of the one liners. It was brilliant - really was Expand

    "Last Vegas" is based on a concept done to death, but for some reason, I loved it. Kevin Kline played my favourite character in the film, and although a lot of the plot is over-the-top, I felt it worked. There are some great "lessons" in the film, and although some of the plot just works out "too perfectly", I dug it. I wish movies trying to be like "The Hangover" would copy this instead. Expand

    A movie for the ages, meaning over 50. Funny movie that keeps a smile on your face throughout and quite few burst of loud laughter. I enjoyed it very much. The young might have difficulty in relating. Expand

    Although the movie lacks many things a good comedy should be, our four musketeers make a satisfying appearance. Recommended for anyone that enjoys old fashioned comedy movies Expand

    Michael Douglas is getting married, so his 3 childhood buddies (Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman, Kevin Kline) travel to Vegas for the bachelor party. Those expecting the geriatric version of "The Hangover" will be disappointed…nothing remotely outrageous happens. Instead, there are basically 2 movies: Douglas & De Niro have a relationship drama, while Freeman & Kline provide the gentle humor. 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

    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. Expand

    This movie is awful, a complete waste of talent. Douglas, DeNiro, Freeman and Kline are so much better than this puerile garbage. Totally predictable. Totally overdone plot (think of Hangover and so many other "group of buddies go to Vegas" type movies) and old jokes and scenarios. Why do they have to continually make movies that show old guys going through a mid-life crisis and lusting after young women? Us old guys are NOT all like this. Some of us a very happy with our lives and our wives. Avoid this movie like the plague. Expand
