(George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Bernie Mac, Don Cheadle / PG-13 / 105 mins / Warner Bros.)
Overview: Terry Benedict (Andy Garcia) saw Danny Ocean (George Clooney) and his gang (Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, and others) steal $160 million from one of his casinos, and now he wants the money back, with interest. To avoid Benedict's wrath, Ocean rounds up his crew of thieves and jets to Europe with plans to score loot in Rome, Paris, and Amsterdam, including Rembrandt's "De Nachtwacht" painting.
Verdict: OK, in a handful of words ... it's a nice holiday diversion that amuses itself more than it should! Sometimes fun and sometimes funny, but never remotely as fun or funny as the film that preceded it, 'Ocean's Twelve' provokes more intellectual than emotional interest - and at the same time exists for no other reason than to cater to each viewer's celebrity recognition factor! In truth, it often seems like a big, swinging party with a can't-miss guest list ... that fails to impress upon its arrival!
