This movie is about a bunch of old men who have been friends since they were six years old, and one is getting married to a much younger woman, and they all get together to have a bachelor party in Las Vegas.

Sam (Kevin Kline) is married and lives in Florida. Archie (Morgan Freeman) just had a stroke and is being carefully taken care of by his son. Paddy (Robert DeNiro) is a widower who is sad and negative all the time while sitting in his easy chair in his robe, looking at the pictures of his dead wife which is everywhere in his house. Billy (Michael Douglas) is the one getting married in Las Vegas on Sunday and calls all the boys who decide to give him a bachelor party over the weekend before the wedding.

The movie begins when Billy (who is now in his 60's) is at a funeral for an old friend and proposes to his 31-year-old girlfriend while giving the eulogy. The pals known as the "Flatbush Four" decide to go to Vegas. Archie sneaks out of the house from the clutches of his son, leaving a note that he is going on a church retreat. Sam loves the idea and so does his wife thinking maybe it will bring the spark back into their marriage. Paddy refuses to go and needs some talking into but he finally says yes. There is some resentment between Paddy and Billy because Billy never showed up to his wife Sophie's funeral. You see, they were both attracted to the same woman back then, but Paddy eventually won out.

When they arrive at the Binion's Hotel, they realize the hotel is in renovations for the next year and a half. In the meantime, they stop at the bar and meet Diana (Mary Steenburgen) who is the nightclub singer. In time Billy and Paddy get rather cozy with Diana. Then Billy calls his assistant to set up a new hotel to stay at--the Aria Hotel. They gamble and Archie bets his $15,000 pension and wins $102,000. With that kind of money, the manager sets them up with the penthouse suite.

The party is set up for saturday night at their suite. Everyone shows up including Diana. But there is a situation. Both Paddy and Billy like Diana, which is the same thing that happened with Sophie when they were younger. Tensions pursue.

In the end, Billy makes a decision and you'll have to see the movie to see what that was. 50 Cent makes a brief appearance at the end of the movie.
I enjoyed the movie, and I think you will laugh out loud. Also, the theatre was packed--not an available seat to be found.

OVERALL RATING: A
