But to score the cash, Danny risks his chances of reconciling with ex-wife, Tess.

    A lark for everybody concerned, including the audience.

    Name user

    This wholly enjoyable entertainment sees Soderbergh setting himself a new challenge - the hi-tech robbery procedural - and relishing the cliches even as he freshens them with a dab of polish, wit, pace and a light touch of irony.

    Name user

    It can, at times, be forgettable in a fun way, especially when its funniest performers are caught in Soderbergh's spinning crosshairs.

    Name user

    Fun-loving, carefully crafted romp.

    4/5

    Forget Oscar, Ocean's Eleven is the coolest damned thing around.

    Name user

    [A] triumph of style and story...

    Name user

    Despite dashes of droll dialogue from screenwriter Ted Griffin, the remake aims for cool but instead gets chilly.

    Name user

    Buzzes along at a mildly entertaining pitch from start to finish.

    3/4
    Name user

    Soderbergh's crisp, funny heist flick makes out like a bandit. George Clooney and Elliott Gould steal the show.

    Name user

    Despite a lot of snappy dialogue supplied by screenwriter Ted Griffin, Ocean's Eleven bogs down in technological minutiae, pointless set pieces that aren't very funny and by indulging the urge to constantly sell itself.

    Name user

    Pure Hollywood moonshine.

    3/4
    Name user

    The new Ocean's Eleven is altogether different -- it isn't content to let star power, shtick and easy camaraderie carry the day; it works for your money.

    Name user

    To be sure, Soderbergh has proved his entertaining point, and done the Rat Pack one better, converting a paltry failure into a paltry success. But just how cool is that?

    Name user

    Vigorous, involving entertainment.

    Name user

    Admittedly, little of Ocean's Eleven is likely to hang around in your head past closing time. But that only gives you a good excuse to see it again.

    Name user

    I think it's time for Soderbergh to be leaving Las Vegas.

    Name user

    It didn't shake me up and I wasn't much involved, but I liked it as a five-finger exercise.

    3/4
    Name user

    Top-of-the-line studio eye candy.

    Name user

    A brand-new ride, complete with humor, action, explosives, good-looking men in tuxedos and high-tech toys.

    Name user

    Need a good argument for remakes? Look no further than Steven Soderbergh's Ocean's Eleven.

    Name user

    Happily Soderbergh's updated Ocean's Eleven, reconceived by screenwriter Ted Griffin, has only three things in common with its source: a Vegas location, a casino-heist plot, and a crew of cool cuties.

    If you see only one utterly undemanding, totally inconsequential motion picture this season, make it Ocean's Eleven.

    Name user

    For those not so taken by the star power, this new Ocean's Eleven is the equivalent of a domineering team you can't stand that enters the Super Bowl. Even if you don't like the players, the odds are so good that it's tough to bet against them.

    4/5
    Name user

    A champagne bubble of a movie, lively, effervescent and diverting. If it bursts earlier than we'd like -- and it does -- that takes nothing away from the considerable pleasure it provides along the way.

    4/5
    Name user

    Vastly superior to the 1960 Rat Pack original, it boasts a well-structured, if engagingly improbable, story line and a glistening cast that performs with brio.

    Name user

    The kind of movie that makes you wish you were having as much fun watching it as they obviously had making it.

    Name user

    It's extremely confusing, but you quickly learn to ignore the details and just watch the glam cast have fun.

    Name user

    There is considerable pleasure to be had watching a Hollywood formula crowd-pleaser, no matter how irreverent, that's been made with intelligence, wit and style.

    Name user

    The cinematic version of a Happy Meal -- tasty and filling, not particularly nutritious, but generally pleasing for all.

    Name user

    Good, expensive, easygoing fun.

    3/4
    Name user

    One of those sit-back, relax and enjoy-it movies.

    B+
    Name user

    Made with so much wit and brains and dazzle and virtuosity that the sheer speed and cleverness of the caper hits you like a shot of pure oxygen.

    Jazzy and insouciant, if not quite what Frank would have called classy.

    Name user

    There's a world of difference between an accomplished popcorn movie like this one and one that's oversalted.

    3/4
    Name user

    Represents a mostly successful stylistic shift into sheer artifice, where the force of the personalities involved compels your interest.

    Name user

    Laboring under the handicaps of a contrived script, an uncertain approach and personalities in essence playing themselves, the production never quite makes its point, but romps along merrily unconcerned that it doesn't.

    Name user

    Terminally boring.

    Name user

    The heist itself, though, is a superb piece of movie-making.

    Name user

    Young people are likely to find this more appropriate and bewitching than do their elders. The latter are likely to feel less gleeful in the presence of heroes who rob and steal.

    Name user

    The original Ocean's is fun, fun, fun.
