The teaser trailer for “Last Vegas” has it right when it touts that the movie is “going to be legendary.” The film brings together esteemed actors Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro, Michael Douglas and Kevin Kline in a “The Hangover”-style romp set in Las Vegas.
Except, with a cast like this, “Last Vegas” could end up being significantly better than “The Hangover,” despite all that movie’s wonderful absurdities like hanging out with Mike Tyson’s tiger or finding the wrong Doug. There’s a scene in the “Last Vegas” trailer where Freeman is drunk on Vodka Red Bulls, and the result is kind of hilarious.
Directed by Jon Turteltaub, “Last Vegas” also feels a lot like “Grown Ups” on crack. In that film, Adam Sandler brought together some of his closest comedian friends to star in an ensemble comedy where the biggest draw is just seeing them riff off of one another. The same can be said here, except this time is Douglas joking around with De Niro instead of Rob Schneider playing off David Spade.
“Last Vegas” is due out on November 1.
