They pulled off one of the biggest heists ever and now they have another job to complete. Ocean's Eleven, which consisted off Danny Ocean (Clooney), Rusty Ryan (Pitt) and Linus Caldwell (Damon) and others, all thought they would be able to enjoy their money, but someone has other plans. Terry Benedict (Garcia) is still fuming after losing his money and wants it back. The team now have the job of getting all the money they spent back, or risk being thrown in jail. How are they going to get it all back? By pulling off another amazing plan. Written by
Before filming began, Brad Pitt put out a memo to all crew members stating that they only address George Clooney as his character's name Danny Ocean or Mr. Ocean. Eventually Clooney found out about this and got back at Pitt by putting bumper stickers on the back of his car that read "I'm gay and I vote" and "Small penis on board." See more »
Towards the end when they get on the private jet, the plane shown from the outside is a Gulfstream (windows are horizontal ovals); the interior shots are a Falcon 900 (different windows). See more »
The sequel to Ocean's Eleven is dreadful. Let's look at the first one, it was funny, interesting, and had some unique characters. In this one, the magic of the first one is stripped away. It's unfunny, it's uninteresting, and you don't even see most of the characters for more than a minute. It begins with Terry Benedict(Garcia), the villain from the first one, going around acting cool while letting the Ocean's Eleven know that they had two weeks in which to return his money with interest or he would have them killed. The team then goes to Amsterdam to try to get rich. They are then confronted by a good thief who calls himself the Nightfox(Cassel), who thinks he's better than the eleven and challenges them to a thief duel. First off, what a crappy plot, it is also dreadfully predictable. While watching, you don't connect with any of the characters and any so called "fun" that you are supposed to have is ruined by terrible camera work, annoying music, and annoying transitions. If that's not enough to make you reconsider and see a good film like Finding Neverland, then you'll be in for a treat. Perhaps the worst thing about this disaster is that in the middle of the film, in a failed attempt to have some laughs, Julia Roberts has to play Julia Roberts in a heist operation. And if that's not bad enough, they also hide a pillow underneath her shirt to try to make her look pregnant and have Bruce Willis in a cameo playing himself meet up with her and that add to the chaos. Any way you look at this it's a terrible film. 1 out of 10.
