Elevator Pitch Danny Ocean gets the band together to rob casinoes in Las Vegas, but when the others find out that his ex-wife is now the owner’s lover they question his motives. Can he get her back and overcome the impenetrable security systems surrounding the casino vault?
Content Most of the movie spent watching the team prepare for the heist in a facimile of the casino vault with asides in the casino itself as the preparations are made. A boxing match with real boxers and a real celebrity audience. Then the carrying out of the robbery itself.
A View Everybody including me thought this was good fun, after all how could it fail with such a scintillating cast? Well, as we have discovered just having a star cast does not guarantee a great movie but if you have not seen it watch this. It cost a lot but made a fortune.
