Cinema: Ocean's Eleven

Directed by Steven Soderbergh

There's a lovely moment when charming ex-con Danny Ocean (George Clooney) quizzes his ex (Julia Roberts) about her new beau. "Does he make you laugh like I did?" he asks, and she douses the flame by replying, "He doesn't make me cry like you did." Other than that, this remake of the 1960 Rat Pack caper doesn't offer much. The stars, including Matt Damon and Brad Pitt, hit their marks and smile a lot. The ending hints at a sequel (Ocean's 12? Ocean's 22?), but you've seen this one. Rent a video of Topkapi instead.
