Last Vegas review
The film itself is premised on the themes associated with the movie 'Hangover", but the work does not stop there, as the latter deals with the bittersweet realities of an aging America; hence the title "Last Vegas". Archie, as played by Morgan Freeman just experienced a stroke, prior to partying with his friends; and Billy, as played by Michael Douglas, has urological-prostate issues that surface throughout the movie.
To continue, the problematics associated with a 60-70 old male trying to engage in the mating process, is explored in the movie in a rather comical, albeit poignant fashion (Cf. Sam's (Kevin Kline's) dialogue with the millennial, twenty-something female during the bachelor party in Vegas) When the twenty-something lady talks to Sam, she is talking to an elderly man; not just to another male party-goer.
FYI: Be advised that there are some graphic, in- your- face, snake-handling scenes during the bachelor party.
