Ocean's Twelve is busier, messier and thinner than its predecessor, and while it looks like the cast is having a blast and a half, the studied hipness can get so pleased with itself it borders on the smug.

Hits a new low in condescending facetiousness, with no fewer than 15 performers of varying talents, tongues firmly in cheeks, undercutting all the genre's action conventions while camping up a storm on two continents.

It does the hard work of being a light, smartly turned-out amusement, the sort of thing that's becoming more and more rare on the movie landscape these days.

May be one of the most glamorous, goofy and heartfelt films about failure ever made.
December 11, 2004
Some of the bits are hysterical, but others fall flat.
December 10, 2004
In this sprawling oglefest, such things as 'narrative' and 'story' are remote little abstractions indeed.
December 10, 2004
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.

In keeping with his general distaste for sequels -- this is his first, in fact -- Soderbergh has subverted all of the usual conventions, making the movie far more interesting than it has any right to be.

Much of the movie feels improvised, with laid-back actors tossing off one-liners that work far more often than they don't.

The pleasures are entirely in the digressions, which are silly and often delightful.

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.

This slickly entertaining sequel is all about savoring eye candy.

How many movies recapture the blithe spirit of Frank Sinatra and his Rat Pack, plus a sense of old-school star glamour?
December 10, 2004
While the movie's lack of pretentiousness is refreshing, there's also a nagging sense of laziness to it.
December 10, 2004
Ocean's Twelve feels like a lark, a dashed-off confiture that isn't so much a movie as an excuse for a bunch of old friends to hang out in Europe with somebody else paying the bill.
December 10, 2004
Ocean's Twelve lacks the courage of its star-driven convictions.
December 10, 2004
Hey, these boys and girls just want to have fun. This time, though, it is at our expense.

Who doesn't want to see George Clooney nuzzling alongside Julia Roberts, sipping champagne on the patio of an Italian villa? They're just so darn attractive and wealthy looking and on top of the world.
