‘Last Vegas’


Last Vegas
Stars: Robert De Niro, Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman, Kevin Kline

This movie begs the question: Is Las Vegas paying kickbacks to Hollywood? Vegas already has a reputation for the lewd, crude and lascivious; it will now have the distinction of injecting life into the geriatric set. Billy (Michael Douglas) is engaged to a woman nearly 30 years his junior, so of course his three best friends throw him a bachelor party in Sin City. What transpires is exactly what you’d expect: drinking, women, hangovers, and a couple of unexpected twists, although we can’t detail those, ‘cause what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. Watching Robert De Niro in action is like watching any artisan in his or her prime: awe-inspiring. –p.d. lee
