Last Vegas is an American comedy movie which stars some of the biggest celebrities - Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro, and Kevin Kline. This movie features three sixty-something friends who head to Vegas to celebrate the bachelor party of one of their friend since high school.
The first scene of a movie starts off with a series of photos taken in a photo booth introducing the 4 main character when they were younger and then it fast forwards to 58 years later. We then see these 4 characters as old men in their 60s. Each of them have their own characters (typical of Hollywood films) which you can read clearly who and what they are. It shows us how they are as old men now and what they have and had to go through until then.

The movie's narrative goes through an emotional journey but peppered with humour but I find that it deals with the idea of the dear of human of becoming old. It is a meaningful show and it knocks some sense into you telling you that, "You know one day i'm gonna be like that" It makes you terrified at the same time yet it also tells you to appreciate your life and the people around you. It is also about sacrifices and letting go, because when you come to that age, you are bound to lose people you love, you loose all your youth and your kids are terrified of losing you that they just want to keep you in a safe house.

It shows the contrast between the young and the old in the show. The movie uses alot of close-up shots on the main characters which really shows you that, you know, celebrities DO get old. They have wrinkles, they have a beer belly, they have saggy skin and body parts just like any other human being and one day they are gonna eventually die too. I would give this movie a rating of 8/10. I give props to the values that it has but some scenes I find exists just to drag time.
