Two salesmen whose careers have been torpedoed by the digital age find their way into a coveted internship at Google, where they must compete with a group of young, tech-savvy geniuses for a shot at employment.
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

My wife and I began watching this with enthusiasm; we respect and love the main actors in this film, but after 45 minutes, we had had enough and left the theatre out of respect for our memories of their other great films.
It has a nice concept, older guys having a blast in Las Vegas, but it constantly has the impression that lots of scenes were filmed apart, and put together to make it look like they're all together. When they are together they gel well enough, and they deliver their lines, fulfill their roles... That's it. It's mildly amusing because it is set up. It doesn't flow naturally.
The best parts of what I saw in half the film were the lead actors; the worst are all the other actors who aren't strong, and are clearly trying to not take the spotlight as if it might take focus away from us having to focus on the main cast.
It is a film about De Niro, Freeman etc., not about the characters they portray. It's just another excuse to get lots of famous people together for fun.
It's not terrible, it just isn't good.
