My rating: 6.5/10

Will I watch it again? No.

I really don't have much to say about this one.  It's very predictable and I can't think of anything I didn't see coming a mile away.  You get some of the standard and easy old people jokes, Las Vegas jokes, sex jokes...but what makes them work is the cast.  The top five names in the list are great and are lots of fun. And what's more, they look like they're enjoying themselves and that goes a long way in selling the script.  Yeah, I laughed and I got choked up a little in a couple of spots.  So on one hand, it's your run of the mill comedy but on the other, the cast does a good job of performing it which makes all the difference in the world.  And the older you are will likely dictate the more you'll like it.
