FAQs

  • Las Vegas casino owner Terry Benedict (Andy Garcia), still fuming over the heist that Danny Ocean and his 10 colleagues pulled on him in Ocean's Eleven, wants his $160 million back (plus $30 million in interest) even though his insurance company has already compensated him for his loss. One by one, he contacts each of the 11 and warns them that, if he is not remunerated in two weeks, they are dead ducks. In order to raise the money, the team reunites and decides to pull another heist in Amsterdam. After they attempt the heist, however, they discover that a Parisian thief known as the Night Fox (Vincent Cassel), real name François Toulour, has been there ahead of them. Toulour then challenges them to steal the Fabergé "Coronation" egg, which he will also try to steal in order to prove who is the greatest thief ever, surpassing even his mentor Gaspar LeMarque (Albert Finney). If Ocean's team is successful, Toulour promises to pay off their debt to Benedict. Unfortunately, Rusty's ex-girlfriend, Europol agent Isabel Lahiri (Catherine Zeta-Jones), E.U. Organized Crime Unit Special Task Force, is watching them. Edit (Coming Soon)

  • Toulour was angered when LaMarque, his mentor, agreed with "a very loud and annoying businessman" that Danny Ocean was the greatest thief in the world.

  • They are referring to Max Schumann, a thief who twice raised entire buildings, once in 1964 in Venice and again in 1973 in Istanbul, in order to gain a better line of sight. Isabel told Rusty about it several years ago, and Rusty used the ploy to gain access to van der Woude's (Jeroen Krabbé) safe. That's how Isabel knew that Rusty had a hand in the theft.

  • The flashback near the end of the movie, where it shows Danny and Rusty setting up the counter game with LeMarque, is dated "Second Thursday, six days left." This is the same day that they were in the train station trying to track down Yen's whereabouts and figure out Danny's age, the day before they met with the Night Fox for the first time. LeMarque warned them that Toulour would have them under surveillance from then on and that they would have to put on a very elaborate show. Everything after that first meeting with Toulour at his house in Lake Como was part of the "elaborate show." Edit (Coming Soon)
