Ocean's 11 was a sloppy, unfunny movie to begin with, mostly a sop for Frank Sinatra's raging ego (he was the least appealing person in the entire film--Dean Martin and Peter Lawford left him in the dust--Joey Bishop was more appealing, for Christ's sake)--It was also a film about Vegas that was too chickens--t to mention the mob. Skip it and spend the money on a decent remake of YOUNG AT HEART (great movie w/Sinatra and Doris Day) and you'll get ME to the box-office.

Yeah, Ocean's 11 was downright awful. But I would much rather see a GOOD version of a disastrous heist pic that had potential than ANY remake of a movie that was good to begin with. You're right that Young at Heart is a gem -- why pretend to improve on it when there is so very, very much to improve on with Ocean's?

This board seems rather dead! I just thought I'd post a heads up for the folks who are interested in film soundtracks. The Ocean's 11 soundtrack looks fabulous according to its playlist. A great collection of David Holmes tracks plus some other nice tunes thrown in. The website is simple right now (www.oceans11music.com) but it's got the track list down. I also cannot wait to see this film!

Like "Out of Sight" before it, "Ocean's Eleven" bleeds cool. This is a fantastic, sleek, fun-as-hell diversion that never takes itself too seriously, thereby letting the audience in on the sheer fun these guys had. It's a crime that George Clooney and Brad Pitt -- two guys who pretty much have it all -- are allowed to have this much fun in a film. Jealousy aside, it's worth the time and money -- and the soundtrack RULES.
