Last Vegas Reviews
This Vegas trip of often haughty lifelong friends can't quite manage to entertain as one would expect from the names on the movie poster.
something wonderful that happened to me, it sort of stops being wonderful.
This was alright, just tad bit too cutesy for my taste; I mean, it was entertaining enough, but the primary cast didn't seem to have any chemistry together-- separately they were great but together they didn't seem to belong as friends. Nonetheless, this was still not a bad way to while away an hour and 45 minutes of your life...you could do worse.
The 4 friends share a unique bond, and have quite the history between the 4.
Despite feuding between a couple of them, they come together for a fantastic weekend that shows just how special a true friendship can be.
I think one of the main things shown here was forgiveness and not holding grudges to people you care about.
The movie had a good message and I loved some of the laughs that were on display. There were some truly funny parts on display in the movie as the old crowd intertwined with the young crowd. It was cool to see.
The movie does have flaws but you cannot ignore the talent on the screen.
Each 4 of the legendary actors had their chance for a showcase and they all shined brightly.
This movie gets a negative five for a score (-5) and off with the head of whatever studio executive gave the green light for this movie.
In "Last Vegas", four childhood friends get together in Sin City to throw a bachelor party for the ladies' man of the group, the last of them to finally get around to getting married. The set-up is similar 2013's "The World's End", complete with one attendee who, due to an old grudge, had to be tricked into joining the reunion. As the four men air their grievances, remember the past and worry about the future, they're working their way through a weekend in Vegas in which they make new friends (of varying ages) and figure out how to party "like it's 1959", although the calendar is working against them.
This movie, with these four acting legends, and ably supported by Mary Steenburgen, Michael Ealy, Romany Malco and Roger Bart, is a good bit of fun. Jokes about aging abound, but just as those gags are about to go stale, the film shifts gears to focus more on the drama that has developed among these four men, yet still manages to work in a few more laughs here and there. It's a pleasure to see these four cinematic legends share the screen and it's obvious that they're having a great time playing these characters. There are a couple interesting plot twists along the way, which culminate in a resolution that is predictable, but heartfelt. "Last Vegas" is funny, but could have been funnier, interesting, but could have been more interesting and well-acted, although not quite award-worthy, earning, from me, a "B".
