Last Vegas - review

What do four old age pensioners get up to when they spend a weekend in Vegas?

The answer, according to Last Vegas, is the exact same thing as everyone else.

There's gambling, partying, proposals, drinking and drugs... well, Viagra anyway.

At the heart of the film there is a sweet story of lifelong friendship and how growing old doesn't mean that you have to stop living but a lot of that is drowned out by the bright lights and big city noise of the Hangover-style excesses.

After high-rolling roles in the likes of Casino and Behind The Candleabra it is a shame to see the likes of DeNiro and a perma-tanned Douglas crap out with only Kevin Kline making the most of the hand he was dealt in terms of a lacklustre script.
