Trivia

Right after the heist when Sheriff Wimmer is interrogating a possible witness over the phone, the uncredited voice on the other end of the line is that of George Fenneman, better known as the announcer on such TV game shows as "You Bet Your Life (1950)" and "Tell It to Groucho (1961)." See more »

Goofs

When Josh is driving the garbage truck and is stopped at the roadblock, a law enforcement officer should have recognized that Josh was far too clean and well-dressed be a real on-duty garbage man. This is not a goof as there is no reason to assume all garbagemen were dirty 24/7 as well as the officer was barely even looking at Josh to notice. There was no reason for the police to suspect garbagemen to give Josh a second thought. See more »

Quotes

Josh Howard: Look Vince - the brave ones don't come home. You stay scared.
Vince Massler: Yeah. You were always one of those guys who didn't want any brave ones on patrol with you, weren't you?
Josh Howard: It's simple enough - in my book "brave" rhymes with "stupid" and it still does.

fun snapshot of the Rat Pack
18 June 2004 | by didi-5See all my reviews

This version of 'Ocean's 11' hardly needed a plot, did it? Just an extended ad for the Rat Pack's Vegas shows and the enormous ego of Frank Sinatra, here strutting his stuff as Danny Ocean, leading his war chums in a plan to rob numerous casinos in one night.

So we get Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Peter Lawford, and Joey Bishop (did they play characters in this? can anybody remember who?) and a fun romp to the pay off - still getting referenced in films being made today. George Clooney's remake was nowhere near as much fun. There's music in this movie, of course (with that cast you'd be disappointed if not), plus appearances from Angie Dickinson, Shirley MacLaine (uncredited but noticeable), Cesar Romero, and Errol Flynn's widow Patrice Wymore.

This really is a lightweight lark if you're in the mood. Is it a good film? Probably not. Is it good entertainment? Absolutely.
