Last Vegas | 2013 | PG-13 | - 6.4.5

Four friends (Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Kevin Kline and Morgan Freeman) gather in Las Vegas for a bachelor party for one of them the day before his wedding. What happens in Vegas with these four senior citizens might be too much for the casino city. Also with Mary Steenburgen, Jerry Ferarra, Romany Malco, and Roger Bart. Directed by John Turtletaub. [1:44]

SEX/NUDITY 6 - A woman in her twenties suggests sex to a much older man; they enter a bedroom, where she removes her dress and bra and we see her from the back (her bare back, the side of one breast, and her bikini panties are shown); the man and woman kiss until he stops and says he cannot continue, because he would want to share the details of the sexual experience with his wife of 40 years and cannot do that; the woman says that she hopes to marry a man like him one day, pulls her dress around herself, and leaves the room. A husband and his wife lie in bed side-by-side.
 Around a Las Vegas hotel pool for a bikini contest, four older men rate the attractiveness of women passing in front of them (we see the women's thighs, abdomens and cleavage) and a few of the women dance with writing motions and one woman bounces her large bosom; an older overweight woman wearing a one-piece swimsuit dances across the stage area, while one of the older men announces over a microphone that he has a condom and is available and people laugh; some men in the pool are shirtless; a male announcer removes his outer shirt and pulls off rip-away trousers to reveal tight briefs and he does a lap dance in the face of one of the older men judging the contest. A female server wearing a short black shorts-playsuit with cutouts at the chest to expose cleavage sits on the laps of male patrons in a dance club. A man accepts advertising post cards that advertise prostitutes and the cards feature a woman nude from the waist up, with red stars covering her nipples. Several party and dance club scenes feature women wearing halter-tops that reveal cleavage and abdomen and short shorts while using writhing dance moves.
 Several swimming pool scenes feature shirtless men and women wearing skimpy bikinis that reveal cleavage, abdomen and legs; a few of the women have large bosoms that bounce while a few other women wear thong bikini bottoms that reveal full bare buttocks. Women on Las Vegas streets and in casinos wear short shirts and shorts or short dresses that reveal partially bare legs. A woman opens her bathrobe briefly to reveal a bra and bikini panties (we see cleavage, abdomen and thighs). A underwater close-up of a senior citizens' water exercise class shows elderly women wearing one-piece swimsuits from the back; the instructor is grinding her hips as she slides on the floor beside the pool to demonstrate a movement; a few men are in the group and we see their bare chests. A large Las Vegas billboard features four shirtless young men from the waist up with bare chests as they face the camera. Several older men around a swimming pool wear shorts that extend to mid-thigh. A large mural in a casino features the upper chest of a woman.
 A man approaches a tall blonde woman to ask for a date and discovers that she is a female impersonator who is married to a woman; three scenes feature the performer and his colleagues in full female attire and makeup to impersonate famous stars; one scene is in the group dressing room, where the men are in heavy makeup and dresses or shorts, with fishnet hosiery and one man wearing a bustier gives the appearance of having significant cleavage; at a party, these performers dance with male partygoers briefly.
 A man tells an assistant that he wants Double-D entertainment for a party; the assistant slips invitation handbills into a stripper's thong panties as she writhes in close-up on a small, elevated stage (we see bare buttocks and thighs); at the party, some women shimmy or bounce their large bosoms as they dance in clingy dresses that reveal cleavage and partial thighs; three women jump into a small swimming pool and their dresses become wet and clingy, revealing more cleavage and thighs.
 A 60-something female singer in a club sings torch songs about lost love and troubles; she wears three different long gowns that reveal moderate cleavage; an older man approaches her and suggests sex and she asks if he is good in bed; he replies that he does not remember. The wife of an older man gives him a condom and a tablet of Viagra (please see the Substance Use category for more details) to use in Las Vegas, so long as he never tells her the details of any of his sexual activity there. A man tells a woman at her bachelorette party that she is not married yet and should spread "it" around or it will get dusty (sex implied) and she replies, "Eeww!" A 20-something woman tells an older man that his young fiancée likes him only because he is rich.
 A man decides to marry a woman half his age who is living with him and he proposes to her during the eulogy he gives at a funeral and she accepts. A woman asks an older man next door to date her grandmother; he tells her to go find a man or herself. At a funeral, a male speaker says that the deceased died in bed, but would have liked to have had a redhead on top of him at the time (sex implied). A man near 70 years old breaks up with a younger woman and plans to marry a woman closer to his own age.
 A man and a woman kiss in front of an unoccupied bar in a small hotel lounge. Two elementary school children (a boy and a girl) kiss quickly in a self-serve photo booth.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - Several elementary school boys gets into a fight with an older boy in a store as the older boy attempts to bully them; one of the younger boys knocks him out and the boys runs out of the store. A man in his 20s accosts four men in their 70s in a hotel dance club and one of the older men punches him out, bloodying his nose as the younger man falls to the floor; the older man's hand is scratched; the next day, the younger man apologizes to the older men, thinking that they are Mafia dons and when they threaten him, he begins doing chores for them.
 In two scenes, a man pushes the another man into a swimming pool. A rooftop roller coaster on a high rise Casino jolts to a stop and hangs over the edge of the building as part of the ride, causing riders to scream.
 A man delivers a eulogy for his dead boss; we see the coffin and mourners. In a eulogy, a man states that the dead man stayed in bed for two years and gave up on his life. We hear about the illnesses and deaths of several people. We hear that a man's mentor died and we see him in a coffin at his funeral; we hear that another man's wife died (we do not see her). We hear a man suffered a mild stroke and had hemorrhoids. A man states that he had a metal knee replacement and a hip replacement and is considering having testicular replacements. A man argues with a friend about going on a trip across the country and a third man wheezes as he slowly climbs the stairs to the first man's apartment, pretends he is very ill, and breathlessly says he wants to go on the trip with both of the other men. A man argues with two other men on an airplane for several hours. A man holds a grudge against an old friend that refused to attend the first man's wife's funeral; a year later, they fight over another woman and about his wife's funeral several times. A man criticizes a male friend for dying his hair and asks, "Where did the extra hair come from, your [anatomical term deleted]?" and another man asks, "Do you wash your hair, or just wipe it?" An older man tells his adult son that he wet his bed in the night, causing the son to leave the bedroom quickly. A man tells a female friend that he used to make his wife laugh so hard she peed her pants.

An elementary school boy steals a bottle of Scotch from a store and about 60 years later we see him and his friends attempt to drink it and it tastes bad (most of the men spit it out and grimace), a bottle of champagne sits in a silver bucket and bottles of Scotch sit on a table at a party, four older men throw a party in a Las Vegas penthouse suite and we see a table filled with dozens of bottles of expensive liquors while many men and women drink cocktails and others drink whisky or beer from bottles or enjoy colorful mixed drinks, several women sit on a couch at a party with their heads back as an older man pours liquor from two bottles into their mouths, an older man's son tells his dad not to drink and dance because of his health and we later see the young man later having a drink with his dad, two older men lie on a round spinning bed and say that they have never been so hung over before, a woman's female friends say that she will be sloppy drunk all weekend since her fiancé broke up with her, a woman holds a glass of Champagne, a man at a gathering says that he can drink but not smoke for health reasons, people drink from beer bottles at gaming tables in a casino bar, five people toast and drink large Martinis, four older men must pay $1800 for a bottle of vodka and admission to a dance club where a man alone at dinner has a beer bottle on his table (he does not drink), four men are shown doing a lot of drinking in Las Vegas and we see them drinking Scotch and mixed drinks in several bars and a dance club and also around a swimming pool and at two parties, and a man drinks a Red Bull Vodka Martini and declares, "It's like getting drunk and electrocuted at the same time!"

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
