Ocean's Thirteen (Steven Soderbergh) - 2007

Al Pacino plays the ruthless Las Vegas hotel mogul who is not Steve Wynn.  Pacino cheats Elliot Gould out of his share of the latest project so George Clooney and company plot to ruin Pacino's grand opening.  It's all so clever and complicated.  The boys manage to complete this impossible scheme this time without the aid of Julia Roberts who was busy giving birth to Henry Daniel and making Charlie Wilson's War with Tom Hanks.  I suppose that their adoring public would be willing to pay to see Brad Pitt, Matt Damon & Clooney make trout-fishing documentaries but this stuff is just Netflix fare in my mind.
