Last Vegas (CBS Films 2013, Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro)

Last Vegas

Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman, Kevin Kline and Mary Steenburgen star in Jon Turteltaub’s comedy Last Vegas about a group of ageing bachelors having a stag party in Las Vegas. When suave sixtysomething businessman Billy (Douglas) declares he’s about to finally get married and settle down with a woman half his age, his three lifelong friends from Brooklyn propose a celebratory trip to Vegas to relive old times.

But when Billy, happily married Sam (Kline), twice-divorced Archie (Freeman) and perpetually grumpy widower Paddy (De Niro) arrive in Sin City, they find it much changed.

The narrative tracks the gang’s antics in the hedonistic city and their attempts to get Billy to reconsider the wisdom of wedding someone so much younger – attempts that could prove unnecessary when he meets divorced-mother-turned-lounge-singer Diana (Steenburgen).
