Ocean's Eleven Reviews

December 10, 2008
A lark for everybody concerned, including the audience.
February 11, 2006
This wholly enjoyable entertainment sees Soderbergh setting himself a new challenge - the hi-tech robbery procedural - and relishing the clichés even as he freshens them with a dab of polish, wit, pace and a light touch of irony.
January 22, 2002
It can, at times, be forgettable in a fun way, especially when its funniest performers are caught in Soderbergh's spinning crosshairs.
January 6, 2002
Fun-loving, carefully crafted romp.

Forget Oscar, Ocean's Eleven is the coolest damned thing around.

[A] triumph of style and story...
December 7, 2001
Despite dashes of droll dialogue from screenwriter Ted Griffin, the remake aims for cool but instead gets chilly.

December 7, 2001
Buzzes along at a mildly entertaining pitch from start to finish.

December 7, 2001
Soderbergh's crisp, funny heist flick makes out like a bandit. George Clooney and Elliott Gould steal the show.
December 7, 2001
Despite a lot of snappy dialogue supplied by screenwriter Ted Griffin, Ocean's Eleven bogs down in technological minutiae, pointless set pieces that aren't very funny and by indulging the urge to constantly sell itself.
December 7, 2001
Pure Hollywood moonshine.

December 7, 2001
The new Ocean's Eleven is altogether different -- it isn't content to let star power, shtick and easy camaraderie carry the day; it works for your money.
December 7, 2001
To be sure, Soderbergh has proved his entertaining point, and done the Rat Pack one better, converting a paltry failure into a paltry success. But just how cool is that?

December 7, 2001
Vigorous, involving entertainment.
December 7, 2001
Admittedly, little of Ocean's Eleven is likely to hang around in your head past closing time. But that only gives you a good excuse to see it again.
December 7, 2001
I think it's time for Soderbergh to be leaving Las Vegas.
December 7, 2001
It didn't shake me up and I wasn't much involved, but I liked it as a five-finger exercise.

December 7, 2001
Top-of-the-line studio eye candy.

December 7, 2001
A brand-new ride, complete with humor, action, explosives, good-looking men in tuxedos and high-tech toys.

Need a good argument for remakes? Look no further than Steven Soderbergh's Ocean's Eleven.
December 7, 2001
Happily Soderbergh's updated Ocean's Eleven, reconceived by screenwriter Ted Griffin, has only three things in common with its source: a Vegas location, a casino-heist plot, and a crew of cool cuties.

If you see only one utterly undemanding, totally inconsequential motion picture this season, make it Ocean's Eleven.
December 6, 2001
For those not so taken by the star power, this new Ocean's Eleven is the equivalent of a domineering team you can't stand that enters the Super Bowl. Even if you don't like the players, the odds are so good that it's tough to bet against them.

December 6, 2001
A champagne bubble of a movie, lively, effervescent and diverting. If it bursts earlier than we'd like -- and it does -- that takes nothing away from the considerable pleasure it provides along the way.

December 6, 2001
Vastly superior to the 1960 Rat Pack original, it boasts a well-structured, if engagingly improbable, story line and a glistening cast that performs with brio.
December 6, 2001
The kind of movie that makes you wish you were having as much fun watching it as they obviously had making it.
December 6, 2001
It's extremely confusing, but you quickly learn to ignore the details and just watch the glam cast have fun.
December 6, 2001
There is considerable pleasure to be had watching a Hollywood formula crowd-pleaser, no matter how irreverent, that's been made with intelligence, wit and style.
December 6, 2001
The cinematic version of a Happy Meal -- tasty and filling, not particularly nutritious, but generally pleasing for all.
December 6, 2001
Good, expensive, easygoing fun.

One of those sit-back, relax and enjoy-it movies.

December 5, 2001
Made with so much wit and brains and dazzle and virtuosity that the sheer speed and cleverness of the caper hits you like a shot of pure oxygen.

December 4, 2001
Jazzy and insouciant, if not quite what Frank would have called classy.
December 4, 2001
There's a world of difference between an accomplished popcorn movie like this one and one that's oversalted.

December 3, 2001
Represents a mostly successful stylistic shift into sheer artifice, where the force of the personalities involved compels your interest.
