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.

    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.

That, however, is where the likeness ends for “lifelong” in this film means men who have been friends for over 60 years and have gone through many of life’s trials and tribulations together. This movie is geared for and will be enjoyed most by older movie goers who can identify with Cholesterol and PSA numbers versus baseball statistics and who can understand that phone calls from friends you haven’t heard from in many years don' always bring happy news. Well directed by Jon Turteltaub with a screenplay by Dan Fogelman, Messrs. Douglas, De Niro, Freeman and Kline get a chance to display their comedic and dramatic talents while ably abetted by a sparkling and charming Mary Steenburgen, all while in the venue of Las Vegas and, more specifically, Binion's Hotel and the Aria Resort complex. Though the jokes may be old, they are delivered well and make for a relaxed and nice viewing experience. This is not a great film nor will it win many awards but it does give the audience an opportunity to sit back and enjoy the exploits of these senior citizens as they seek new goals, heal old wounds and cement quality relationships. I give the film a 7 and recommend it to all who believe that life doesn’t necessarily end but can, in fact, begin over 70. Expand

    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.

    This movie is awful, a complete waste of talent. Douglas, DeNiro, Freeman and Kline are so much better than this puerile garbage. TotallyThis 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
