"Last Vegas" is an enjoyable film but it's not really a comedy like "The Hangover" which is also set around the theme of a "bachelor party" in Las Vegas. This film has it's comic moments and is fairly light hearted all the way through but it is also a romantic drama. Four men approaching seventy decide to go for a weekend to Vegas to celebrate the wedding of one of them who is marrying a girl half his age.Michael Douglas plays this character and he is ably supported by Robert De Niro,Kevin Kline and Morgan Freeman who plays his friends. However De Niro figures out that Douglas isnt exactly madly in love with his fiancee and the pair get involved in a complicated romantic triangle with a perky sexagenarian barroom singer the friends meet on their first day in the city. "Last Vegas" is likeable and warm hearted and thankfully is not warped by lots of bad language and behaviour not in keeping with the characters ages. Older people should enjoy this film, but there were quite a lot of teenagers in the audience when I watched this film at the cinema as well. Maybe they were expecting another "Hangover".

Billy, Paddy, Archie, and Sam have been best friends since childhood. So when Billy, the group's bachelor, finally proposes to his girlfriend, the four head to Las Vegas with a plan to relive their glory days.

The four quickly realise that the decades have transformed Sin City and tested their friendship in ways they never imagined.

Sinatra may have once ruled the roost, but it's these four who are taking over Vegas....

If you like the thought of Morgan Freeman getting drunk and dancing,then this is for you. The four actors share top billing, but Freeman steals the show, because your used to seeing him as the straight man, the man who will make everything good come the end.

Some may say its The Hangover lite, but it's more that, at least here these characters are three dimensional and likable, The Hangover was a one trick pony, and not very funny.

The cast are great, predictable their characters may be, but go with it, its a lot of fun.

The writers maybe feeding the narrative to the audience on a spoon, as there are things from some scenes that you can just guess the outcome from an object or a look from a character, but you can forgive this little trope.

Its a bright, fun movie, with your favourite actors making fools of themselves.

See it, laugh, and then forget about it.

Loved it - four quality actors bring huge talent to a witty and warm script. All this, a bevvy of Vegas babes and the lovely Mary Steenbergen getting a classy part too - what's not to love.

The jokes are good (condoms, Viagra, bad backs, every time the phone rings one thinks its the other calling with news about Prostate Cancer) the gags are constantly clever (the bathing beauty contest, dancing and getting drunk at the bachelor beer party, winning at the casino's card tables, the luxury suite that should have gone to 50 Cent) and the chemistry between all four of the principals is more than believable (they had fun making this). The back story with them as kids is cute too. Bluntly any film with Robert DeNiro, Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline in it gets my vote. And the BLU RAY picture quality is gorgeous.

Far better than it had any divine right to be - "Last Vegas" is the kind of film that will cheer you up and those are in rare supply these days...

Billy (Michael Douglas) has proposed to a thirty-odd year old, his childhood friends
'Paddy' (Robert De Niro) 'Archie' (Morgan Freeman) and 'Sam' (Kevin Kline) head
for 'Vegas' for the wedding planning to make the preceding two nights before their
pal gets hitched...for the first time, a 'Blast'
As kids they called themselves the 'Flatbush-Four' they are now all in their 70's.
'Paddy' seems to be reluctant to make the most of the reunion / stag-night whilst
'Archie' and 'Sam' are more than ready to join their pal 'Billy' on a 'Vegas' blow-out.
The draw of the tables the bright lights and glamour soon pull the pals in, though
'Paddy' appears to be a slow-starter seemingly refusing to get into the swing.
'Archie' wants to play the tables, 'Sam' just wants to get laid, 'Billy' finds his charms
aren't quite up to speed ?
'Paddy' slowly gets into the spirit by suggesting on their second night they throw a
party for pal 'Billy' inviting as many as would come along.
The four raise the roof in Vegas however their are many reality checks and levellers
for our four party goers before the 'Vegas' weekend concludes.
These guys are of course legendary, they are among the best of what Hollywood has
given us down the years.
There are many genuine comic sequences and frequent laugh-out-loud moments along
the way, genuinely worth a spin.

"The last film I've seen in 2013. If you are tired of the whole Hangover schtick that has been throbbing your cinema screens for 4 years, wait till you give a chance and look no further than a better-written, much funnier, less mean-spirited, and somewhat more human take on four guys and life in Vegas with this film, Last Vegas (a pun of its own).

Freeman, Douglas, DeNiro, Kline, and a witty performance from Steenburgen all provide great and humorous performances as cantankerous old men reconciling after Douglas' character (Billy, from California) tries to invite them all to Vegas in light of his upcoming wedding. The film soon boils down to a story about trust, loyalty, and how friends can make irrational decisions for the sake of proving something but the film never deters to a level where the drama overemphasises the script and the comedy reigns high (which is what The Hangover Part III did not manage to do very well with its bizarre mix of dark comedy, crime thriller, and sex farce).

While the film may seem Hollywoodised and sentimental at parts, I did not get this reaction but it felt the tone, treatment, and the whole film was done just right. All of the gang (especially the normally dry and intelligent Freeman) bring their relaxed chemistry into the film and provide some hilarious scenes involving a VIP entry, dealing with some young egotistical show-off, Freeman walking out of his house, and getting drunk off martinis.

It is not a perfect film but it certainly is a nice treat for older audiences to reconcile their past and feel like living again in a similar way that The Bucket List achieved this feat.
