Last Vegas Review - 1 Star

“Last Vegas” tries to squeeze a few more laughs out of the run of the mill geezer comedy.  Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro, and Kevin Klein grow up in Brooklyn vowing to stay pals forever.  When 70-year-old Douglas proposes to his 31-year-old girlfriend, the gang reunited for a geezer bachelor party.  Supposedly, comedy ensues.  What you really get is a montage of the same old stuff, bikini contests, disco bars, booze etc. Mary Steenburgen adds a bit of spark as a middle-aged singer who leaves the legal profession to pursue her singing dreams.  Does it deliver what it promises?  Unfunny old guy humor.  Is it entertaining?  Nothing creative here.  Is it worth the price of admission?  A lazy way to cash in on the reputations of four great actors and one great actress.
