What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas
on 4 January 2014
"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".
