Billy (Michael Douglas), Paddy (Robert De Niro), Archie (Morgan Freeman) and Sam (Kevin Kline) have been best friends since childhood. So 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.
“Last Vegas” brings together a talented cast when boyhood friends who are in their 60’s reunite to hold a bachelor party for the only “never married” one of the group. Two of them hold a grudge for past wrongs but they finally settle the matter. The film is full of circumstances you would expect from men of this age getting together in Vegas for a celebration such as picking up younger girls and drinking to excess. The language is a little extreme with slang flowing freely from time to time. While there are some funny scenes and the friendships are sentimental, due to the language and sexuality, we cannot consider this a family film.
