Movie Info

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. After he receives the news that he could

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.

The heist itself, though, is a superb piece of movie-making.

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.

Chummy caper comedy, mainly for Rat Pack fanciers.

There are many incidental pleasures to be had.

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.

One suspects that the most memorable moments occurred off-camera.

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.

Audience Reviews for Ocean's Eleven

Whilst I did watch this the wrong way around, ie. The remake before the original, I was pleasantly surprised with the differences between the two. Whilst the main plot sort of remains the same, this version does give you songs from the Rat pack and managed to give a surprise ending differing from that of the remake. Both were cleverly crafted to suit the era of the heist and the technology surrounding it, whilst using the individual skills of the crew.

this movie is the original heist movie, and one of the rat pack's best

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