I know full well I'm expected to Suspend My Disbelief. Unfortunately, my disbelief is very heavy, and during Ocean's Thirteen, the suspension cable snapped.

Thirteen is all about maintaining a barely perceptible smirk behind an impassive pose. The line between cool and cold is a thin one, however. Cool isn't the word for Thirteen; it's just smug.

Now there's just self-fondling fizz -- no, not even that, just a kind of quasi-Zen petulance palmed off as 'cool'

Most of the formula from the first movie has been rehashed without recapturing much of the magic or pizzazz, making this sequel more like 'Ocean by Numbers.'

Another spectacle of celebrity narcissism and goofing off which can only be commended for not being quite as unbearable as its thoroughly self-satisfied predecessor.

Ugly. Filmed through dirt. Danny's Dead End Kids infiltrate bin Laden's camp and hold him ransom for some old dude who rescued them from an orphanage.

The details, the plots, the stratagems, the counter-stratagems mount and mount and mount until the thing reaches a point of such overplotted density it can't be penetrated.

If Ocean's 13 could treat theaters like clubs then they'd place bouncers at the doors so that only the cool people would be let in. That would definitely cut into profits but it would be in keeping with how the film would like to brand itself...

If Ocean's Thirteen often seems as budget-bloated and hollow as a Vegas hotel, it still manages to coast on its surface charms. . . . you may not have hit the jackpot, but you didn't get cleaned out, either.

The "Ocean's" series started out popping like the Bellagio. With "Ocean's Thirteen" it has gone as dead as CircusCircus. On a Tuesday afternoon. During a Shriners convention.

Personality is noticeably lacking in director Steven Soderbergh's cotton candy caper confection that should, but will not, end his superfluous "Ocean's" franchise.

An exercise in stylish bravado that is as substantial as a catfight between supermodels.

Whereas previous Ocean's films have delighted in crossing their audiences, Thirteen barely tries. And when the clever turns predictable ... well, it's no longer clever.

A cocky and condescending indulgence test for anyone who hasn't automatically bought into its faux-cool suave.

Ocean's Thirteen is one long set-up for a wholly unsatisfying and impotent climax.

You know it's one sequel too many, well, actually two sequels too many, when Brad Pitt and George Clooney start finishing each other's sentences while strolling down the Vegas strip and reminiscing on the good ole days.

There is one small bit of good news about Ocean's Thirteen: it's not as bad as Ocean's Twelve. But when you consider just how dismal the latter was, this nugget will hardly be cause for rejoicing.

It's not very funny. Like everything in the third Ocean's movie, these scenes have a great set-up and no payoff. The casual charm that was displayed so easily in Ocean's Eleven has turned downright lackadaisical.
