My review of Ocean's 12 -- along with 11 others -- is up at FilmMonthly.
Cute. Good gimmick.
I think Kristin Schrader's review sums up my feelings:
When I like a movie for no good reason I often claim "It's a mood piece!" and then imply that my companion is too coarse to understand these things, whether or not that is really so. This time I found myself hissing "It's a style piece" trying to effect the same result. People who don't get that are under suspicion for things like wearing Naturalizers or white after Labor Day. Sometimes style is substance. Or, in haiku...
The new eleven
Fashions itself as it will,
We now call it twelve
It's all about looking at George Clooney and Vincent Cassel for 2 1/2 hours (which didn't feel like 2 1/2 to me - even though I will admit that I didn't enjoy 12 quite as much as 11).
I thought it was pretty good.
Love the soundtrack - a must-buy (I also have 11's).
