‘Last Vegas’ Trailer: Senior Citizens’ ‘Hangover’

Published 2 years ago by

Paddy, Archie, Billy, and Sam have been fast friends since the 1950s. Now enjoying their retirement years, the gang gets back together for a celebration when permanent bachelor Billy finally gets engaged. Last Vegas follows the hijinks that ensue as four men in their 60s go out and paint the town red.

Director Jon Turteltaub (The Sorcerer’s Apprentice) directs Last Vegas from a screenplay by Adam Brooks (Definitely, Maybe) and Dan Fogelman (Crazy, Stupid Love). The movie is headlined by Academy Award-winning actors (yup) Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro, Michael Douglas, and Kevin Kline.

This first preview of Last Vegas gives us little – if any – actual plot to chew on. Since this is only a teaser trailer, it makes sense that the filmmakers would want to build hype with only shots of aging, big-name actors tearing it up in Las Vegas. That said, one wishes that the trailer consisted of more than just a series of rapidly edited shots, disconnected comedic stingers, and one mildly funny scene of Freeman getting plastered on Red Bull and vodka.

For the moment, we’ll have to be satisfied with the vague idea that there will soon by a booze-soaked, debauchery-promising comedy starring some of Hollywood’s best-known and respected actors. No doubt future trailers will (hopefully) flesh out Last Vegas‘s story and convince audiences that it isn’t just a Grown Ups-style compilation of recognizable faces hanging out together – a geriatric version of The Hangover, Wild Hogs Hangover  – you get the idea….


Last Vegas will boogie into theaters on November 1st, 2013.

  1. This movie actually looks pretty funny. Probably check it out.

  2. Hope. They find their audience… Because they will have to do without me… I have limited interest for the “old people formula”…, You might have a couple of funny movies now and then (space cowboys, red) but overall it seems like poorly creative writers that have to relies on formula…

  3. Seiing as These guys are just a wee bit older than I am, I am so looking forward to this…

  4. I am so down!!! :)

  5. Looks fun

  6. Kevin Kline doesn’t even look like Kevin Kline.. DADAQ?!

    Throughout the trailer, I was asking myself “where’s Kevin”, then realized he’s the white haired, white bearded fellow. MIND-BLOWN.

    This looks underwhelming.. no one else sees that?

    I like all of these actors, but a party/comedy/vegas/re-hashed formula film?
