As creaky as an arthritic hip, "Last Vegas" does for four leading stars of the '70s and '80s what movies like "Tough Guys" and "Grumpy Old Men" did for survivors of Hollywood's storied Golden Age: It lets them show they can still throw a punch, bust a move, and get it on, and that they're not quite ready for the Motion Picture Home just yet. Beyond that, this genteel "Hangover" for the AARP crowd has little to recommend it, though a smattering of funny gags and the nostalgia value of the cast keeps the whole thing more watchable than it has any right to be.

Don't get us wrong. We don't mean to take anything away from the more substantial qualities of "The Wolverine," a fairly satisfying if not stellar installment in the saga of the famous mutant that Hugh Jackman's been playing since, wow, 2000. (For a little perspective, Bill Clinton was still president.)
