    Hits a new low in condescending facetiousness, with no fewer than 15 performers of varying talents, tongues firmly in cheeks, undercutting all the genre's action conventions while camping up a storm on two continents.

    May be one of the most glamorous, goofy and heartfelt films about failure ever made.

    Some of the bits are hysterical, but others fall flat.

    It does the hard work of being a light, smartly turned-out amusement, the sort of thing that's becoming more and more rare on the movie landscape these days.

    In this sprawling oglefest, such things as 'narrative' and 'story' are remote little abstractions indeed.

    The whole thing is a piffle of fluff or a fluff of piffle. About halfway through you'll get an incredible hunger to see a movie.

    Name user

    In keeping with his general distaste for sequels -- this is his first, in fact -- Soderbergh has subverted all of the usual conventions, making the movie far more interesting than it has any right to be.

    Much of the movie feels improvised, with laid-back actors tossing off one-liners that work far more often than they don't.

    The pleasures are entirely in the digressions, which are silly and often delightful.

    This embarrassing sequel to the 2001 remake of the old Rat Pack romp is bogus on a biblical scale -- a bunch of smug movie stars, goofing on their images, wandering through the wilderness for 40 years. Or what seems like it.

    This slickly entertaining sequel is all about savoring eye candy.

    How many movies recapture the blithe spirit of Frank Sinatra and his Rat Pack, plus a sense of old-school star glamour?

    While the movie's lack of pretentiousness is refreshing, there's also a nagging sense of laziness to it.

    Name user

    Ocean's Twelve feels like a lark, a dashed-off confiture that isn't so much a movie as an excuse for a bunch of old friends to hang out in Europe with somebody else paying the bill.

    Ocean's Twelve lacks the courage of its star-driven convictions.

    Hey, these boys and girls just want to have fun. This time, though, it is at our expense.

    Who doesn't want to see George Clooney nuzzling alongside Julia Roberts, sipping champagne on the patio of an Italian villa? They're just so darn attractive and wealthy looking and on top of the world.

    Ocean's Twelve makes up for all such potential failings with a generously entertaining spirit and a large cast that brings Rat Pack familiarity and a winking sense of savvy to roles they've played before.

    We love these people like family, because they joke and whine and screw up just like our best friends would if our best friends were stealing $200 million.

    If a caper comedy can't sustain a narrative line, all the goofy set-pieces in the world will come to naught.

    Name user

    A fun-filled, mind-twisting romp featuring a cast that obviously had just as much fun making the film as the audience does watching it.

    Name user

    It's so well made and undeniably entertaining it should leap from tall buildings and wear a big 'S' on its chest.

    3/4

    Soderbergh and his scenarists, George Clayton Johnson, Jack Golden Russell and George Nolfi, are doing a jazz riff. This isn't a caper movie at all, it's an improvisation on caper themes.

    3/4

    It's the most high-end junk food imaginable, completely unnourishing and forgettable afterward, but delicious and all but impossible not to enjoy while it's in front of you.

    The real-life camaraderie of Clooney, Pitt, Damon and the rest translates to the screen with charm and verve.

    A lethargic would-be entertainment as well as a dispiriting vanity project, it is such a misfire that it makes it hard to remember what was special about its predecessor.

    With Ocean's Twelve, Hollywood moves a step closer to the glorious day when it will no longer have to rouse itself to the bothersome task of making movies at all, skipping straight ahead to what the studios truly care about: the marketing campaign.

    Steven Soderbergh's unabashedly trivial sequel may be slim pickings, but when it works, it's a blast.

    A better press conference than a movie.

    Ocean's Twelve works like a short-term charm. In several years, you won't remember much about the movie except what a good time you had watching it.

    Offers a cheap (relatively speaking -- ticket prices aren't what they used to be), stress-free, vicarious vacation.

    This movie often seems like a big, swinging party with a can't-miss guest list.

    The thrill isn't entirely gone, but much of the surprise element is.

    Instead of audiences feeling a part of a nifty conspiracy to pull off an audacious robbery, viewers are left largely in the dark as Soderbergh & Co. conspire to trick them with sleight of hand and misdirection.

    Name user

    The film itself is like a glossy European fashion magazine come to life, with beautiful location shots, stylish direction from Steve Soderbergh and comfortable, winking performances.

    Name user

    What's on screen is lazy, second-rate, phoned-in -- a heist in which it's the audience whose pockets have been picked.

    Pleasantness and affability reign supreme in Steven Soderbergh's sequel to the remake of Ocean's Eleven.

    The movie noisily conveys the messy joy of its making, and insists that you have a good time as well.
