    Plot
      After pulling off the heist of their lives, Danny Ocean and his pals unexpectedly find themselves back in harness in this sequel to 2001's blockbuster hit Ocean's Eleven. After robbing a cool $160 million from the Bellaggio Hotel Casino and winning back his former wife, Tess (Julia Roberts), from Bellagio owner Terry Benedict (Andy Garcia), Danny Ocean (George Clooney) is living quietly on the lam in Connecticut when he's unexpectedly approached by Benedict. It seems Benedict has tracked down Danny and the ten men who helped him pull off the seemingly impossible robbery, and Benedict offers them a proposal -- if they can repay the $160 million in two weeks, he won't have them killed. As it turns out, both Danny and his best friend, Rusty Ryan (Brad Pitt), haven't been doing so well in terms of money management and could use some cash, so they set out to plan a robbery to recover the loot, with the same crew helping out -- Linus Caldwell (Matt Damon), Frank Catton (Bernie Mac), Basher Tarr (Don Cheadle), Saul Bloom (Carl Reiner), Reuben Tishkoff (Elliott Gould), Livingston Dell (Eddie Jemison), Yen (Shaobo Qin), Virgil Malloy (Casey Affleck), and his brother Turk (Scott Caan). Danny and Rusty discover that an incredibly rare Fabergé egg is being displayed at a museum in Rome which would fetch the price they need, but they soon discover a notorious cat burglar, François Toulour (Vincent Cassel), is also after the egg, and it turns into a race to see who can claim it first. Adding to the intrigue is Isabel Lahiri (Catherine Zeta-Jones), a woman Rusty used to be involved with who is now a top agent with Interpol and is after both Toulour and Ocean's crew. Shot on location in both the United States and Europe, Ocean's Twelve was, like its precursor, directed by the stylish Steven Soderbergh, who also photographed the picture under his nom de lens, Peter Andrews. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      Review

        At the end of The Player, Robert Altman got Bruce Willis and Julia Roberts to spoof their status as the biggest box-office draws of the time. Fifteen years later, Steven Soderbergh uses the same two stars in order to skewer celebrity culture as a whole. The post-modern finale dovetails nicely with the frisky formalist games that director Steven Soderbergh likes to play, but Ocean's Twelve is easily his least substantial film to date. That does not mean it is not entertaining. The large cast obviously had a blast working together and making the film. While that often leads to finished films that alienate audiences who are not allowed to be in on all the fun that must have been happening when the cameras stopped, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, and everyone else all care more about their careers than their status as celebrities. They surely enjoy the perks of fame; there is no need for this film to exist other than for this collection of actors to revel in hanging out with celebrity friends. However, they fully comprehend how fluid their fame is, and therefore they do appreciate the audience. The viewer is put in the position of being in on the joke rather than having the joke played on them. With lesser talent, Ocean's Twelve might have come off as a crass attempt to cash in, but the first-rate crew and cast turn the film into a good-humored exercise in style over substance. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
