Less than 24 hours into his parole, charismatic thief Danny Ocean is already rolling out his next plan: In one night, Danny's hand-picked crew of specialists will attempt to steal more than $150 million from three Las Vegas casinos. But to score the cash, Danny risks his chances of reconciling with ex-wife, Tess.
Sometimes after rewatching a film I wasn't planning to watch, I come to Letterboxd to log it only to encounter a rating I can't make sense of. When I joined I just rated films I've seen from memory.
My memory sucks as I really don't know why I rated this three stars.
This was on the telly tonight and I just happened to pass by, got sucked in by the company it was keeping and the buckets of charm it was oozing. The entertainment it provides is effortless and smooth, strengthened by the natural way the impressive ensemble cast bounce off of each other.
Just a fantastic bit of escapism.

Ocean's Eleven commits three of the cardinal sins of Hollywood filmmaking:
1. Thou shalt not profit off the success of a previous film.
2. Thou shalt not deliver comedy primarily through talented actors reading a humorous script.
3. Thou shalt not hold thine audience in suspense by means of misdirection or withholding information.
Yet somehow, by the glorious magic of Steven Soderbergh's tight pacing, skillful cinematography and classy soundtrack, as well as his wonderful collaboration with writer Ted Griffin, it succeeds in robbing me of my heart.
This isn't a movie, it's a magic trick.
I can't wait for Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock, Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling and Awkwafina to murder me with feminist propaganda
Disposable entertainment that helps ease the pain of living this cruel life that we are forced to live.
Good heist films are rare, but when they are made they tend to become instant hits, because everybody loves them. There is absolutely no shame in admitting you do by the way. The art of the steal, the baddy as the film’s protagonist, glorification of the life of a thief, these are thrilling aspects of the sub-genre that grand them their gratification. ‘Ocean’s Eleven’, which I had never seen before even though being a huge Brad Pitt fan, is no exception to this rule of thumb and with a talented director as Soderbergh behind the steer wheel, nothing stops this all-stars cast from shining in the attractive roles they have been offered to play. And why wouldn’t they? They get…
Very stylish. Very slick. And a lot of fun.
Brad Pitt and Matt Damon are my favourites.
Good film. But man, do they predict everything? The sequels aren't as good (and #2 is just trash) and Julia Roberts becomes unbearable further on, but each character makes this work.
Soderbergh had a glass of the smoothest whiskey in existence and then he made this movie based off of that glass of whiskey.
Enjoyable caper enhanced by the obvious fun the cast we're having making it.
An improvement on the original Ratpack version
Followed by the derided OCEAN'S 12
There needs to be more heist movies and this movie shows how awesome, some of those can be.
Standard heist plot given the Soderbergh treatment. Ocean's Eleven great direction, cinematography, and a fantastic score. The sccript does make some leaps in logic but makes up for it with witty dialogue and some interesting leads. I do wish the other members of the team were fleshed out a bit but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. It doesn't take away from the film at all.
Ocean's Eleven has a phenomenal cast. It should be a 5 stars, but it is a three stars because there were some meh parts. This movie is about 11 men coming together to pull of a "classy" heist.
George Clooney has a great voice.
Brad Pitt as Rusty Ryan was my favorite part of this movie.
Matt Damon was basically the same age as the rest of the cast & yet he looks so youthful. I loved him.
Casey Affleck will always be my dude.
Andy Garcia reminded me of Oscar Issacs... either it is true or I am simply obsessed with Oscar & I am looking for a reason to see him. Haha.
Clooney & Roberts had no chemistry. They just seem like really good friends.
The best of the oceans series and an enjoyable flick.
gay subtext? in these films? surely not!!!
