What do you get when Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline journey to Las Vegas in a movie? If this were a few decades ago, they'd probably all double cross and kill each other. But today? They get to play old buddies having one last hurrah in a similar fashion to 'The Hangover.' Because the only thing funner than old, drunk people are old, drunk movie stars. Or at least that's what everyone involved with 'Last Vegas' thinks.
The new trailer for the winter release doesn't reveal much more plot than the previous teaser, but it does supply far more "Old People Running Amok In Sin City" jokes. The story follows a group elderly buddies who reunite in Las Vegas to give their soon-to-be-married friend a bachelor party. Along the way, they get drunk, encounter strippers, don't know who 50 Cent is and learn all kinds of valuable life lessons, especially those lessons that deal with the importance of friendship. All together now: awww.
'Last Vegas' looks slight and about as fluffy as studios comedies get, but there's no denying the appeal of watching these four legends get together on the big screen...even if they're doing it in service of some creaky comedy. It may not look particularly cutting edge, but there certainly seem to be some charm here.
'Last Vegas' is directed by Jon Turteltaub and hits theaters on November 1st, 2013.
