Ocean’s Eleven and The Hangover looked like incredibly fun movies to film, with friendly casts enjoying the pleasures of Las Vegas to create wildly successful movies. Last Vegas is the latest attempt to turn a great excuse to hang out in a party city into a box-office draw, directed by Jon Turteltaub (National Treasure) and written by Dan Fogelman (Crazy Stupid Love). Basically, this is Wild Hogs meets The Hangover, with Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman, and Kevin Kline as four old friends—and we mean old friends, get it?—who travel to Vegas for Douglas’ bachelor party. And hey, De Niro punches Turtle from Entourage in the face at some point, so there’s the price of admission right there.
Last Vegas opens in Chicago on November 1, but we’ve got passes to an early screening on Monday, October 28 at the AMC River East. All you have to do is follow this link and enter the code AVCLUBFL83 to RSVP for a pass. Read the synopsis and watch the trailer below.
Starring four legends like you’ve never seen them before, Last Vegas tells the story of Billy, Paddy, Archie and Sam (played by Academy Award®-winners Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline), best friends since childhood. When Billy, the group's sworn bachelor, finally proposes to his thirty-something (of course) girlfriend, the four head to Las Vegas with a plan to stop acting their age and relive their glory days. However, upon arriving, the four quickly realize that the decades have transformed Sin City and tested their friendship in ways they never imagined. The Rat Pack may have once played the Sands and Cirque du Soleil may now rule the Strip, but it’s these four who are taking over Vegas.
