Danny Ocean wants to score the biggest heist in history. He combines an eleven member team, including Frank Catton, Rusty Ryan and Linus Caldwell. Their target? The Bellagio, the Mirage and the MGM Grand. All casinos owned by Terry Benedict. It's not going to be easy, as they plan to get in secretly and out with $150 million. Written by
At the end of the movie Danny Ocean (George Clooney) says to Rusty (Brad Pitt) "$13 Million and you drive this piece of shit." During the heist, Benedict (Andy Garcia) is handed a piece of paper that says the vault is holding $163,156,759. In the first meeting of all eleven, Ocean says that they will each get an equal share. Doing simple math, that means Reuben (Elliott Gould) put up about $20 Million in finance to pull off the job. See more »
When Terry Benedict asks his employee if there is anything for him (in the high rollers room), he responds that Mr. Zerga in the third position (of the baccarat game) wants to talk to him. Mr. Zerga is actually sitting in the first position originally when speaking to the other player at the table. However, when the camera pans back to look at the table, it appears that Mr. Zerga is in the center of the table facing the dealer, and the other player would be in the 5th position now (he was originally sitting in the 3rd position when talking to Mr. Zerga).

At the request of my friends & family over the recent holidays I went to see this film. Though it's not my usual M.O., I really enjoyed this movie.
I've not seen the original 'Rat Pack' version of the movie (except bits and pieces), so a comparison between the two is not possible on my part.
This version I found playful and relatively harmless, and the plot twists are undeniably clever. The comradery between the actors is the most entertaining part of this film in my opinion. Elliot Gould's part had to be my favorite character if forced to pick, followed in close order by Clooney, Pitt & Damon. Actually all of the actors did an excellent job with their roles.
This movie won't change the world, or probably change your mind about anything significant, but the plot is fun, the cinematography is excellent, the actors all shine in their roles, and on occasion that is enough.
