Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman and Robert De Niro party too hard in the Last Vegas trailer
Here’s the thing about movies featuring nothing but older stars; no matter how great they are or how good the story is, it still feels like watching your parents try to be funny. And as we all know, that feels more awkward than anything else and that’s the prevailing feeling I got watching the first trailer for LAST VEGAS, where Michael Douglas invites his old friends out to Vegas for his bachelor party. Sure, I enjoy watching Morgan Freeman learn how great mixing Red Bull and vodka can be as much as the next guy, but at the end of the day, it’s just another old joke. So some of the jokes are going to hit while others are going to make you groan. Watch the trailer below and see what you think.
The official, brief synopsis for LAST VEGAS: LAST VEGAS tells the story of four best friends in their late-60’s, who decide to escape retirement and throw the ultimate Las Vegas bachelor party for the last single member of their group.
