Ocean's Eleven was such a crowd pleaser that they brought eveyone back to try and squeeze more money from the idea. Set three years after Eleven, the team have to steal enough money to replace what they stole from the casino, or else... So they zip over to Europe and get to work. There are two flies in the ointment: a master thief who is one jump ahead of them, and a cop who is one step behind. All of which leads to lots of fun.
Ian Douglas: I was not as impressed with this as with Eleven. Some of the wit is there, but the storyline makes no sense,
and the plot is riddled with loopholes, all of which count heavily against the film's good points. It does not take itself
seriously, but at times takes that very concept of not taking itself seriously just a little bit too far. It sets out to be
a crowd pleaser and generally succeeds, verging more towards comedy than the ''heist thriller'' which it wants to be. It's one of
those movies which can wait for video/DVD or DSTV.
