Ocean's Eleven (Steven Soderbergh) - 2001

Did we really need a remake of the 1960 Frank Sinatra (1915-1998) movie?  The glitzy town (Las Vegas) is the star of the movie but the Mission:Impossible-style screenplay is just not believable.  Recidivist George Clooney is so suave but are we supposed to applaud a gang that makes a $100 million heist just because they are clever?  None of it makes much sense especially the Julia Roberts character who would suddenly forgive her criminal ex-husband just because her current beau loves money more than her.  This is a movie with an all-star cast and no other reason to exist.  We was robbed.
