An affable underachiever finds out he's fathered 533 children through anonymous donations to a fertility clinic 20 years ago. Now he must decide whether or not to come forward when 142 of them file a lawsuit to reveal his identity.
Billy (Michael Douglas), Paddy (Robert De Niro), Archie (Morgan Freeman) and Sam (Kevin Kline) have been best friends since childhood. So when Billy, the group's sworn bachelor, finally proposes to his thirty-something (of course) girlfriend, the four head to Las Vegas with a plan to stop acting their age and relive their glory days. However, upon arriving, the four quickly realize that the decades have transformed Sin City and tested their friendship in ways they never imagined. The Rat Pack may have once played the Sands and Cirque du Soleil may now rule the Strip, but it's these four who are taking over Vegas. Written by
'Michael Douglas' and Mary Steenburgen actually were on the stratosphere ride and had to do it over and over in order to get the shot. See more »
After Archie leaves his house for Vegas you are shown a aerial view of Brooklyn. If you watch the bridge in the lower right corner you can not only see the shadow of the helicopter taking the footage , but the helicopter footage is rewound as seen by the helicopter floating backward. See more »
How many stars do you give a movie that makes you squirm with embarrassment for an hour before you turn it off? I think that 2 was too much for this frankly embarrassing effort at screwing a few grey dollars out of the coffin dodging community.
How much fun would you have going to Las Vegas with your grandparents? Probably not much, but it would still be far better than watching this contrived and lumbering wreck of a movie shuffle on its zimmer frame from one cliché to the next.
You can't argue with some of the acting talent on show here, its just a shame they didn't exercise any judgement before signing up for this. I can't believe the visceral force of nature that drove movies like Taxi Driver and Good Fellas should be reduced to this. And please for the love of all that is Holly do not show us Morgan Freeman "dancing" ever again.
If you are desperate for geriatric laughs then check out Bad Grandpa, Last Vegas is the kind of movie that will make you hope to die young.
