Year 3 Day 80

movie: Ocean's Eleven (remake)
starring: George Clooney, Brad Pitt
genre; Crime, Comedy
year: 2001
format: TV edit

plot: Freshly out of jail, a thief puts together a group of bank robbers in order to break into the vaults of some of the biggest casinos in Las Vegas.

Normally I stay away from anything with Brad Pitt in it, cause I just don't care for him, but I decided to sit through this one.  I thought this was funny, liked it enough, laughed out loud more then once.

I was expecting more out of the Clooney character though.  I did think the comedy timing between Clooney and Pitt was decent. (the only thing I've ever really liked Pitt in was Interview with the Vampire) The idea that this thief was smarter then an entire staff of casino thugs was interesting in it's own right.
I didn't really buy the Julia Roberts/Clooney "romance" though, that for me fell short.
