‘Last Vegas’ Trailer: Old Men Behaving Badly

Published 2 years ago by , Updated June 20th, 2014 at 11:52 am,

When Paddy (Robert De Niro), Sam (Kevin Kline) and Archie (Morgan Freeman), three friends who have been part of a tight-knit group since their childhood, find out that the fourth member of their gang, Billy (Michael Douglas) is finally getting married, they decide to throw him a wild bachelor party in Las Vegas… well, Archie can’t “smoke, drink, eat salt or stay out past nine,” but other than that it’s going to be wild. The slightly ominously-titled new comedy Last Vegas looks like a sequel to The Hangover set thirty years in the future, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

Last Vegas was directed by John Turteltaub (Cool Runnings, The Sorcerer’s Apprentive) from a script co-written by Dan Fogelman (Crazy Stupid Love) and Adam Brooks (Wimbledon). Look closely at this new trailer for Last Vegas, and you’ll also see what looks like a cameo by Redfoo from dance music duo LMFAO, getting a crowd of Las Vegas party-goers riled up for Billy’s bachelor party.

The jokes are a little hit and miss, and there’s a definite sense that a high percentage of them will be about the age of the main characters (“they haven’t heard of 50 Cent because they’re old” etc.), which may end up getting a bit tired. However, Last Vegas does have an excellent cast made up of movie legends, so the movie may be worth seeing for that factor alone. After all, the teaser trailer promised that Freeman will get to show off his dancing skills.

The cast was, at one point, supposed to feature Jack Nicholson as one of the four friends, but those negotiations apparently fell by the wayside at some point. It’s quite a shame, but then again it wouldn’t have been too much of a stretch for Nicholson to play a party animal.

Does this trailer make you want to see Last Vegas when it hits theaters, or does it look more like a rental?


Last Vegas will be landing in theaters on November 1st, 2013.

  1. This looks all too predictable now doesn’t it.
    Nicholson might have made it unpredictable.
    And a hell of a lot funnier too based on this.

    • I wholeheartedly agree, pity really… Sequel?? chuckle…

  2. the window scene had me chuckling pretty good. i may catch this in the theaters if i can get some tix thru my daughter, who works there.

  3. in the description of this you called him Martin Douglas. It’s Michael Douglas.

    • Thanks, I originally mistook him for Martin Sheen, hence the mix-up. It’s fixed now.

      • Martin ans Michael are looking more and more alike these days
        with similar gray hair, and great hair for being older, and grin.

        • I agree Robert Palmar!!! and H. Shaw-Williams, thanks for fixing that, pet peeve of mine.

  4. Not original at all. Mildly humorous.
    Speaking of cliches, this one threw in the ‘old man is a bad ass for unknown reasons and can cold cock someone 40 years younger’.

  5. Morgan freeman seems good enough to draw me to see this

  6. Grown grown ups & the hangover all in one.

  7. I love that you all know what’s a hit or not. I guess that’s why you are here writing from your rooms in your parents house. This will big and no not because of people their age but by people who still remember real actors not today’s mail it in mannequins. Just so you know Sequel already in talks. Now you can chuckle. Who say’s chuckle any way. By the way these are people 50 Cent looks up to. This site is just negative trash. I’m sure this will be deleted since you probably aren’t really allowed to rant on screenrant.
