It looks like fun, but the audience is never in on the joke.

This embarrassing sequel to the 2001 remake of the old Rat Pack romp is bogus on a biblical scale -- a bunch of smug movie stars, goofing on their images, wandering through the wilderness for 40 years. Or what seems like it.
| Original Score: 2/5

Flashy, but not well thought out.

Twelve is not only the new Eleven, it's also the new Ishtar.

Such an amiably lazy sequel that you half expect it to crawl out from under the screen, curl up at your feet and take a doggie nap.

Instead of audiences feeling a part of a nifty conspiracy to pull off an audacious robbery, viewers are left largely in the dark as Soderbergh & Co. conspire to trick them with sleight of hand and misdirection.

So insubstantial as to barely register as an actual film.

Ridiculous heist foisted on us by beautiful actors.

The whole thing is a piffle of fluff or a fluff of piffle. About halfway through you'll get an incredible hunger to see a movie.

Has the unfortunate distinction of featuring the most ridiculous and infuriating self-congratulatory in-joke I have ever seen...

fundamentally weak material, even discounting the cacophonic title

I can't tell whether the last sequence is part of the storyline or if it's footage from the wrap party; in either case, I can only report that we aren't really invited.

Meets its snappy predecessor head on and wilts in comparison.

...an insult. It's like making moviegoers pay for someone else's overseas frat party

Instead of delivering an even modestly clever riff on the heist genre or worthy follow-up, they are be-boppin' and scattin' all over themselves and the audience.

Resonating with Rat Pack ring-a-ding-ding, it's a silly sequel but, considering star value alone, it should sell a lot of popcorn.
