“Last Vegas” Film Review.

I know there are a lot of films about a group of friends going to Vegas and it’s a story that’s been told over and over again, but for me, Last Vegas is an exception to the norm, as this movie is absolutely delightful. This delightful film brings together friends Billy played by Michael Douglas, Paddy played by Robert De Niro, Archie played by Morgan Freeman and Sam played by Kevin Kline who have been friends for 58 years and reunite for a bachelor party and wedding in Vegas for one of their own.

The chemistry between these famous four actors is undeniable. The plot progresses so well because of the fantastic character development. Instead of the typical gross toilet humour that most Vegas films display, Last Vegas has chosen for a mischievous, fun, vibrant and cheeky approach. And it works.

I loved Last Vegas. It is exceptionally funny and actually has a lot of heart. Although the idea of friends going to Vegas has been overdone, Last Vegas manages to provide a fresh approach full of love, laughs and will leave you more than satisfied. I would love to see a sequel for this film, and I have yet to meet someone who did not like this movie. This is one of the best comedies that I have seen in YEARS. A must watch!

  • I think this movie looks pretty awesome (though it could just be because I love Morgan Freeman). I agree with you that a story of a group of friends going to Las Vegas is overdone and I haven’t even watched those types of movies. But the idea of an older group of people going BACK to Las Vegas and it’s all changed, THAT seems interesting. :)

  • Oooh I should give this a go, I was hesitant about it as I agree with you that the idea of going to Vegas as a group of friends has been done quite a lot in the film industry . With Las Vegas seemingly enough being the central problem destination for individuals

  • Hmmm I dunno we’ll see…

Got anything to say? Go ahead and leave a comment!
