Hilarious if you are 50 plus and can relate to the humor. Interestingly, two teens next to us were also laughing. I just don’t know if they were laughing at us…or the movie. I suspect it was us. Haha.
Four lifelong friends from Flatbush (The Flatbush 4) have moved on with their lives. They are getting old. One (Kevin Kline as Sam) has a new titanium hip (or, this year, is it a knee?), one (Morgan Freeman as Archie) is recovering from a stroke and worries his son, one (Robert De Niro as Paddy) is depressed over the death of his wife of 40 years, and one (Michael Douglas as Billy) is desperately trying to stay young by marrying a woman less than half his age.
The Flatbush 4 old version travel to Las Vegas for Billy’s bachelor party. The jokes and situations that lead up to this event are hilarious. “I have hemorrhoids that are 32 years old”. When they land in Las Vegas the old guys meet an older (but still very sexy) club singer (Mary Steenburgen as Diana) who turns the heads of both De Niro and Douglas (what?….he is supposed to be getting married!).
“Last Vegas” is a very funny movie. Life does not stop in your 70’s…it just changes. Like Douglas says “5 minutes ago I was young, now I am old”. Scary because it is true. You will find out.
Not for kids or teens…sorry. Not for adults under 50. If you are over 50 or, better yet, over 60….you will LOVE it! I loved it.
Drive Safe! Never Forget.
