Ocean’s Eleven
2001
**½
Director: Steven Soderbergh
Cast: George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt, Andy Garcia, Matt Damon

This stylish heist film remake is supposedly the epitome of pure entertainment. Admittedly, the picture has a beautiful golden glow, the dialogue is snappy, the soundtrack is cool and all the stars look gorgeous. However, we learn absolutely nothing about the characters (for example, why on earth is Roberts with Garcia?) and the story doesn’t offer one surprise. Ocean’s 11 plan the heist, pull it off and run away with the money without a single hitch on the way.
