The other night I watched Last Vegas. This comedy stars a quartet of greats, Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline.
These four lifelong friends start out as children in the streets New York. Flash forward a crapload of years, and now they are brought together for the wedding of Billy (Douglas) to a much younger bride. The group comes across lovely lounge singer Diana ( Mary Steenburgen) who Sam (Kline) wants to sleep with, Paddy (De Niro) swoons over and Billy ultimately wins the heart of. There is a fair amount of drama from years and years of conflicts, namely between Billy and Paddy. But in the end their lifelong best friendship heals everything and everyone can go home happy and healthy.
This was a fantastic, light-hearted comedy that I highly suggest to everyone. The scene where Archie (Freeman) gets drunk on vodka/red bulls is absolutely hilarious. That short scene makes it worth it!
If you’ve seen it, let me know what you thought!
