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>

Four old guys hire a bus to go and save one of their daughters from getting married to the wrong guy in Vegas and on the way they prove they can still party-hearty.

The Bucket List it ain't - but with the likes of Rip Torn, George Segal, Peter Falk, and the wonderful Bill Cobbs it is what it is: a no-brain required college road trip but instead of the 20 year old it's the 70 year olds.

The plot about the marriage is paper thin, and all too silly, as is how they lose their bus driver and that subsequent story line, but overall it's kind of fun.

Not sure who this was aimed at: old guys, young guys, it ain't family viewing, but I was surprised that I did enjoy most of it: the charm of the group shines through.

Watchable when you don't need to think and just want to relax...
