During a Los Angeles Christmas, a group of 82nd Airborne vets assembles under the leadership of gamblin' man Danny Ocean (Frank Sinatra) to rip off five Las Vegas casinos just after the stroke of midnight on New Year's Day. Playboy Jimmy Foster (Peter Lawford) joins in the scheme because he's sick of needing his oft-married mother's money, especially now that she's about to wed Duke Santos (Cesar Romero), a self-made man with all sorts of underworld ties.

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Laboring under the handicaps of a contrived script, an uncertain approach and personalities in essence playing themselves, the production never quite makes its point, but romps along merrily unconcerned that it doesn't.
Young people are likely to find this more appropriate and bewitching than do their elders. The latter are likely to feel less gleeful in the presence of heroes who rob and steal.
Considering the iconic status of all involved, the result is disappointing.
Sinatra, Davis, and Martin performed their club acts at night and worked on this Las Vegas-set film during the day, and the good time they were having fairly jumps off the screen.
Sluggishly paced, shoddily staged, and featuring a plot full of inconsistencies
At least as entertaining as the remake. Probably better.
Tepid. The idea is so much better than the execution.
A heist flick that counts on its coolness -- and a remarkably downbeat ending -- for its success.
Think of it as an ancient-history lesson in the social evolution of long-extinct male dinosaurs.
There are just too many main characters for any of them to develop any depth, too many shots of casino signs sparkling in the night, and too little pace and plot to pull the whole thing together.

- Danny Ocean: Why waste those cute little tricks that the Army taught us just because it's sort of peaceful now.
