It's a cast of relaxed old pros with easy chemistry, all of whom seem to be having a great deal of fun. The feeling is almost mutual.

Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline may all be pushing or past 70, but there's a surprisingly jaunty spring to their step in this breezy comedy.

"(It) could have been and probably should have been more accurately titled 'Jokes about Elderly Aches, Pains and Complaints: The Movie.'"

Mercifully, the actors are not degrading themselves here - they only stoop as low as mere slumming.

Five Oscar-winning actors working for a paycheck on a film that lacks a genuinely funny backbone.

It's far from perfect but there's a layer of sentimentality that makes Last Vegas easier to digest.

It's Old Men Gone Mild in this ultra-predictable, decently funny mashing of The Hangover and The Bucket List.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Jon Turteltaub's ''old men behaving badly'' romp does more than merely pander to expectation. Beyond the noise of the strip lies a buddy comedy with heart.

Belly-laugh material it isn't, but Last Vegas fits the prescription for a happily undemanding piece of entertainment.

No surprise to see Robert De Niro here. Write him a big enough cheque and he'll do the school play of your choice.

With stars of this calibre, the movie can't be all bad, and it ain't. It's just hollow

Not one of Fogelman's good scripts. Like The Guilt Trip, that relied on the casting of Seth Rogan & Barbra Streisand, this flimsy premise of four 60 something guys heading to Vegas for a last hurrah is counting on star power with little else to offer
John Beifuss

The mild misadventures and late-life epiphanies don't so much suggest a Geritol 'Hangover' as an all-male special episode of 'The Golden Girls.'

Last Vegas is double AND nothing. It wins big with Freeman's cool and Kline's surgeon-like timing and flails miserably with everything associated with relationship between Douglas and DeNiro.

A funny, touching and surprisingly fleet-footed comedy about a quartet of 60-plus male friends who are determined to grow old (dis)gracefully.
Ed Whitfield

It's one thing for Morgan Freeman to coach an ignorant young buck on respect for the ladies, another for the same flick to ogle them, patronise them and position them as plot balm to reconcile two male characters.

De Niro, Douglas, Freeman and Kline set about Last Vegas with the panache of a lifetime's experience.

[Michael] Douglas's ability to laugh at himself by proposing at a funeral is priceless ( ... ) the film succeeds mostly through the warmth of its camaraderie overpowering the adult tone of its humour.

The one ray of sunshine: surely anything with the word "Last" in the title is incapable of spawning a sequel?
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Far from being liberating, the film ends up swinging two fingers towards the retirement home.
