It’s been years since the gang has been together but an upcoming wedding calls for drastic action, four friends since childhood, Billy (Michael Douglas), Paddy (Robert De Niro), Archie (Morgan Freeman), and Sam (Kevin Kline) reunite for one weekend in Las Vegas to throw Billy the bachelor party of all bachelor parties. But, an underlying spat between Billy and Paddy might just be the wet blanket that spoils everything. Life lessons to be gained, will these pals set aside their differences and let the healing commence, and what of this new songstress in the wings, Diana (Mary Steenburgen)?LastVegas Written by Dan Fogelman and Directed by Jon Turteltaub what’s concocted is a perfectly normal, feel good, buddy film that doesn’t exactly challenge viewers but charms them instead. With cliché old jokes, and predictable scenarios a-plenty, the few genuine chuckles and laughs here are hardly hard earned but here’s where some of our favorite aging actors shine, their overall charisma and spark translates into fun time. While almost totally forgettable, from an entertainment angle you could totally do worse, the production quality feels slick and acting remains solid. Maybe a fun and mindless distraction if you’re looking for something light this weekend. Las Vegas is rated PG-13.
