I saw the 'new 11' and have yet to see '12', as ill probably wait for it to come out on DVD.
Im sorry, but to me, 'Oceans 11' is 'The Rat Pack'. (frank sinatra, dean martin, sammy davis jr.,joey bishop and peter lawford)
This film was never intended to be 'Gone with the Wind'.
It was just an excuse for a group of famous friends to get together in vegas and party, show up at eachothers stand-up shows at the casinos and use
the excuse "we're here to do a movie" for their families.
What went on behind the cameras was the stuff of legend(the party's and the casino shows)
That will never be duplicated, because those men are all dead now.
But to me, these 'ocean' movies are just a cheap imitation of something that was a classic, (it was the only film, they ever all starred in
together) that has been turned into yet another pathetic ...'money-machine'.
[sarcasm]I cant wait till they try to remake 'Casablanca'. Colin Farrell and 'J-Lo' in the Bogart/Becall roles?[/sarcasm]
