Storyline Heading
A man not to be trifled with, Benedict is secure in the knowledge that with its high-tech security system, the main vault beneath the Bellagio is impregnable. As is his relationship with Tess. Danny Ocean thinks otherwise. To pull off his elaborate scheme, Danny handpicks a team of gifted grifters — 11 men, three casinos, $150 million, all at once, in one daring holdup.

Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Excellent "It wouldn't be wrong to call ''Ocean's Eleven'' a trifle, but it's a debonair trifle made with high-wire effrontery, the kind that can't be faked. This giddy and glancing charade is one of the most sheerly pleasurable movies to come out this year, and it cements Soderbergh's status as the reigning artist-entertainer at work in Hollywood today.''

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Good "This is probably about the best anyone could do with Ocean's Eleven. The high-wattage star power and unpredictable plot should give it healthy box office splash before it sinks beneath the waves made by the other December 2001 contenders.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Good "I enjoyed it. It didn't shake me up and I wasn't much involved, but I liked it as a five-finger exercise. Now it's time for Soderbergh to get back to work.''

USA TODAY  Full Review
Above Average "The hip factor is missing in Steven Soderbergh's more tightly crafted Ocean's Eleven reworking, which is fatally lighter on the two V's — vermouth and Vegas mystique — that still make 1960's Rat Pack original waningly watchable.''

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

These are some VERY HIGH OPINIONS! Nearly everyone thoroughly enjoyed "Ocean's Eleven." With so many opinions of "Excellent" and "Fantastic," I can HIGHLY RECOMMEND "OCEAN'S ELEVEN" to everyone!


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Dapper Danny Ocean (GEORGE CLOONEY) is a man of action. Less than 24 hours into his parole from a New Jersey penitentiary, the wry, charismatic thief is already rolling out his next plan. Following three rules — don't hurt anybody, don't steal from anyone who doesn't deserve it, and play the game like you've got nothing to lose — Danny orchestrates the most sophisticated, elaborate casino heist in history.

In one night, Danny's handpicked 11-man crew of specialists — including an ace card sharp (BRAD PITT), a master pickpocket (MATT DAMON) and a demolition genius (DON CHEADLE) — will attempt to steal over $150 million from three Las Vegas casinos owned by Terry Benedict (ANDY GARCIA), the elegant, ruthless entrepreneur who just happens to be dating Danny's ex-wife Tess (JULIA ROBERTS).

Coincidence or motive? Only Danny knows for sure. To score the cash, he'll have to risk his life and his chance of reconciling with Tess. But if it all goes according to Danny's intricate, nearly impossible plan, he won't have to choose between his stake in the heist and his high-stakes reunion with Tess…or will he?
