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.

Four childhood friends who where like a good old gang back in the day, now 58 years later they all(Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro, Michael Douglas, and Kevin Kline) have grown apart and living separate lives, and all pushing 70. But get a call to go to Las Vegas, for a friends engagement. Will these four old friends have the time of there lives?
All the great actors here have great chemistry and appears to be having fun being in the film together. The Las Vegas setting is awesome, and seems to take on a life of it's own. It was also very funny seeing the adventure and misadventure these guys get themselves into. It's also quite heartwarming, an enjoyable film for men and women.
