This movie shows the bond of longtime friendships, and what we’re willing to do to keep those friendships strong. Although much less depraved than some of the other “Vegas” themed movies, it still has moments that are typical of what you’d expect from a high rolling, superficial culture. I enjoyed watching these iconic stars put their personal touches on each of their characters.

Rated 7/10. I enjoyed this movie. It had a very simple plot, but it was good fun.

I had low expectations and was not disappointed. This is horrible. There is little that could be called a story here and I wonder why in the world these good actors signed on to a concept and script like this. Watching them ogle 20 -something women with one female peer thrown in to show maturity is awkward. I don't think even the shared friendship between them is believable.

VERY GOOD 2003 with excellent ensemble acting. Moves along nicely, with interspersing of drama, romance and comedy.

Pretty fun watch. Nice portrayal of long friendships. A bit silly and unrealistic.
Some misogyny, but not as bad as most group of men in Las Vegas movies?

Take five has-been actors, Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman, Kevin Kline and Mary Steeburgen, a lousy script and a director nobody has ever heard of and the result is the most tedious waste of everybody's time since Howard the Duck was released in 1986. I can only hope that somebody donated this mess to the library, the thought that library funds were spent purchasing 17 copies really upsets me.

The big selling point of Last Vegas is definitely the cast. Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman, Kevin Kline and Michael Douglas are all great actors in their own respects, and it makes complete sense that they would all be great together, which they are, to a point. The point I am talking about is the script and story. To have these acting heavy weights in this movie seems like a bit of overkill, but when you watch Last Vegas, and realize the story is nowhere on par with the actors telling it, it makes sense. Now saying that, I actually did enjoy watching Last Vegas, it had some funny parts and I can watch Morgan Freeman in pretty much anything, but for the most part all the jokes were either very underwhelming and you could see their set ups a mile away. Plus relying on so many aging tropes in one movie got old real quick, (pun intended). The truth of Last Vegas is this, without the big name cast, it could have easily been a TV movie or a running sitcom, and that just seemed like a waste of talent to me.
