Storyline

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 <jhailey@hotmail.com>

More lack of focus than bad movie.
28 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I kind of liked it, expected a lot more though from the veteran actors though. Denis Farina would have rounded this movie up nicely if they could have gotten him for it.

The premise of the movie kind of kills it, it should have been a much smaller subplot, I think that most are fans of the familiar older actors and could have care less and done without the rapper, marriage, homo Thelma & Louis, and other distracting subplots. These seemed like deliberate filler more than plot vehicles.

The "Thelma and Louis" sub plot did have it moments, but it needed a better tie in to the main plot. These divergent tangents fragmented the movie a bit much and reminded me more of a sequence of skits than a cohesive story experience.
