  • Last Vegas 2013

    ★★½ Watched 15 Jan, 2015

    Last Vegas is mindless and harmless fun relying heavily on jokes about how old its four protagnonists are that will surprise exactly nobody, but as the similar Grudge Match is fine enough if you want to relax a little bit and watch some of your favourite stars have a good time.
