Trivia

As Peter Lawford, Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra attempt to disguise themselves by blackening their faces in the garbage truck near the end of the movie, Sammy Davis Jr. says, "I knew this color would come in handy some day." Martin and Sinatra teased Davis about that scene for as long as they knew each other thereafter. See more »

Goofs

When Danny and Jimmy are in the strip club in Phoenix, they're reminiscing about a wartime mission in which their 11-man commando team captured $6 million in gold and took it out on a rubber dinghy. However, $6 million in gold at 1945 prices ($34.71 an ounce) would weigh nearly six tons. They could not have carried it away in a rubber dinghy. See more »

What's your drink?
19 July 1999 | by (Annandale, VA) – See all my reviews

While other movies try to induce the willing suspension of disbelief, this movie goes the entire opposite direction and never lets us forget that these are entertainers putting on a performance. In case you weren't entirely sure, the closing shot leaves no doubt. As one reviewer perfectly describes it, "The blurred boundaries between showbiz and private life seem to have vanished for good." That's quite an accomplishment!

The stars aren't acting, they're partying down in an elaborate role-playing game and inviting you the viewer to play along with them. Join the party and for 2 hours you too can be a swinging, sophisticated member of the rat pack who can simultaneously handle a martini and cigarette in one hand and doesn't have to pause for even a second when somebody asks "what's your drink?". "Ocean's Eleven" is the "Pulp Fiction" of the Kennedy era - a movie that makes you feel hip just to watch it.
