The "Ocean's Eleven" group appear on camera together in only a single shot. It is at the very end of the movie as they are walking on the sidewalk in front of the Sands. See more »

Well I married you once and it didn't work out too well, so what's wrong with a little hey-hey?
Nothing. Nothing at all. I'd never knock it as long as there was a little love involved.
You mean there isn't.
On your part, not much.

"Ocean's Eleven" was made back in the movie era when men were men, women were little more than customizing accessories and the Rat Pack was at its peak. It was also a time when movies weren't incessantly analyzed, but enjoyed.
Enjoyment is what this film provides. Ol' Blue Eyes, Sammy, Dino and the rest are in prime form as part of an 11-man commando force plotting to rob several Las Vegas casinos. The film is fast, fun and totally satisfying, all the way to its O. Henry-type ending.
Besides having an interesting plot and actors who don't take themselves too seriously, "Ocean's Eleven" provides an interesting glimpse into the Rat Pack era, when being cool was really hot. In short, if you get into the groove, you can really dig this little number. It's hip, man.
