Last Vegas ;AReview

                                                             

Last Vegas is a very cute and really funny comedy about four guys who grew up in Flatbush,Brookyn, N.Y. who call themselves The Flatbush Four.  Billy (Michael Douglas), Paddy (Robert DeNiro) Archie (MorganFreeman) and Sam (Kevin Kline) have been best friends since childhood “No one calls us names but us.” So when Billy, the group’s sworn bachelor finally proposes to a thirty two year old girlfriend he invites them to Las Vegas for a bachelor party and stop acting their age and relive the glory days. Kevin Kline is living in a Senior citizen development in Florida with his attractive wife, Morgan Freeman is living with his son and his family and Robert Deniro is living by himself after his wife recently passed away.

When they arrive they find that Sin City is testing their friendship in ways they never imagined and these four literally take over Vegas.  When they plan to leave Sam’s wife gives him a condom and Viagra  pill and a note that says “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” and tells him to have a good time.  Archie who’s under strict watch by his son sneaks out a window and leaves a note saying he is” going on a church retreat and they are safe people. ” :D. Paddy is the only one reluctant to go because he and Billy have some issues he can’t forgive Billy for. Namely he and Billy once dated the same girl and Paddy ended up marrying her. When she passed Billy never showed up for the funeral even though Paddy’s  wife  requested   that he deliver the eulogy at her funeral.  Paddy can’t forgive him for that and now marrying someone half his age really upsets him so he sets out to convince him otherwise.

When they arrive in Vegas Archie bets his entire retirement pension of $20,000 all at once at the poker table and wins $102,000.It is then they decide to throw the party of a lifetime.

The film is loaded with lots of senior citizen gag lines such as when Sam ( Kevin Kline) is approached by a sexy young girl at the party who asks him if he has any drugs he replies, “Does Lipitor count?” or when Archie (Morgan Freeman)hears that Billy who is 69 is marrying a 32 year old he says, ”I have a hemorrhoid that’s 32.” 😀

During their stay they run across a gorgeous cabaret singer played by Mary Steenburgen who does her own singing in the film and naturally both Billy and Paddy fall for her and it starts all over again between them.

For a really entertaining time and great senior buddy flick that not only most seniors can identify with, but families too then Last Vegas is pure fun.

Random Thoughts

Remember the Wiki Leaks? That hacker group from Norway who hacked into the Pentagon and released classified information to the public? The media hailed them as heroes and film maker Michael Moron said they should be given the nobel prize. Well after several more hacks  the media was giving them plenty of attention until they hacked into a liberal environmental network and uncovered hundreds of scientists sending e-mails to each other stating how much money they could make convincing the public on global warming. Then the silence from the rmedia was deafening. Just a thought……..A reporter for the movie website RottenTomatoes gave the Batman movie a terrible review (I disagree by the way  s noticed in my previous blog) and he received so many death threats that the site shut down threi rmessge board. Meanwhile the one who should get death threats is this so called comedian David Cook in L.A. who said “This movie is such a bunch of crap  that they said the shooter walked in 20 minutes after the movie started and started shooting. The movie is such a bunch of crap that even if their was no shooter someone should have stood up after twenty minutes and said ‘just shoot me’ .” That is the epitome in bad taste to me and not funny yet this audience applauded him albeit nervously. I wonder what would happen if he said that in front of the victim’s families. I wonder if he received any death threats or if someone confronted him afterwrds. I saw plenty of attacks on the message boards under the article………….I was reading an article about the flags on the moon left by the astronauts are still standing which was a fascinating read with pictures. That should prove to the skeptics that say the moon ;andings were faked. I think they saw that movie too many times. 😀 Anyway a debate ensued on the message boards about the democratic president presided over what moon landing and I noticed this interesting respoonse from a commenter.:D Not a Democrat by today’s standards. But of course, the Democratic Party, which gave us the founding of the Ku Klux Klan, Jim Crow laws, poll taxes, literacy taxes, blacks riding in the backs of buses, segregated water fountains and restrooms, not to mention having to have the military called upon them to force them to allow black children into white schools, multiple votes against civil rights legislation up until the 1960s, where they were shamed by Republicans into finally giving in to the fact that black folks deserve the same access to services as white folks. The same Democratic Party which had SITTING MEMBERS of the KU KLUX KLAN all up til the end of the end of the 20th century (Robert Byrd, Al Gore’s dad, and dozens others). Let’s not forget FDR (the Democrat Party superhero) and his racist internment of Japanese Americans during WWII. You mean THAT Democratic Party? Oh yeah, that one.
The same Democratic Party (thank you President Obungo) who just KILLED NASA. The Chinese will be to the moon and back a dozen times before we even think of re-entering outer space. Dude…your post is so stupid and insipid, that we are ALL dumber for having read it.

Ronnie Spector in Concert-Beyond the Beehive

                                              Image

I’vej ust returned from seeing RonnieSpector of the famed Ronettes in concert and I must say it was a combination of being interesting, different and disappointing all in one. I’ve seen Ron nie in person twice before performing with other groups and this is the first time I’ve seen her solo. The name of the concert is Beyond the Beehive referring tot he sexy beehive hairdos she and her siste r and cousin wore in the Ronettes in the sixties which I am still a fan of today.

Obama debt.

The media talks about Romney’s debt in Massachusettes in urging voters to vote for Obama, but under Obama 15 million more people are on food stamps, 25 million are unemployed or underemployed and we have five trillion in new Obama debt that is unsustainable so don’t tell me about Romney’s debt in Mass.
