Fitzy, a Florida retiree, dislikes his daughter Elizabeth's fiancé and has three days to get to Vegas to convince her not to marry. He enlists the help of his three aged golf buddies - Dominic, Marvin, and Joe. Elizabeth's ex, a slacker named Billy whom Fitzy really likes, organizes the trip on a chartered bus. After revelry in South Beach, they set off, stopping in New Orleans at the mansion of Marvin's rap-star nephew, the Flow. En route, they fire their gay drivers who start their own crime spree, so the police are mistakenly looking for Fitzy and his "gang." Dad, golf buddies, the Flow and his entourage, the engaged couple and her ex, and the cops are headed for the chapel. Written by

At about 20 minutes into it they are cruising through Miami, as they are hanging out the door of the bus a girl with a red bikini top, white shorts and blue socks is roller-blading past in the opposite direction, when the camera changes she is right beside the bus suddenly going in the same direction.

Okay, they have a great cast here with Peter Falk playing a golf retired man whose daughter is getting married to a Frenchman. He doesn't like her fiancé but prefers her ex-boyfriend Billy who he hangs out with on the golf course in Florida with his buddies played by Bill Cobbs, Rip Torn, and George Segal. The cast is solid but the writing needs an overhaul. While it's an entertaining film, there are some laughs along the way from Florida to Las Vegas like how they got rid of Taylor Negron (their bus driver) and Mario Cantone in the Deep South. That led to a Thelma and Louise and Bonnie and Clyde without being terrified or horrified by their crimes even their victims appeared unaffected by the robberies. Anyway, the film is okay and it has a predictable ending.
