1 STAR

Last Vegas - Low grade geezer comedy with Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman, Kevin Klein and Robert DeNiro. Great actors - stupid script

Diana - Oh what a terrible movie. "Diana" presents Lady Di as divorced and lovesick over a heart surgeon. Sappy and disrespectful. Poor Naomi Watts does the best she can
