    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    There's no joy and little playfulness about this caper comedy, which, despite a lighthearted script, has a sober undertone to it, almost a melancholia. show more

    Mike Clark USA Today

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

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    Depends on comic timing so precise that it seems weightless and all but effortless. And it depends on performers, of course, who can do a comic turn just as readily as a deft writer can turn a phrase. In that department, Ocean's Eleven is at least 11 times blessed. show more

    The movie tells you right up front you're going to get what you came for: big stars, winking inside jokes and a spin on something so familiar it doesn't matter that you don't buy it for one minute. You're not meant to. show more

    Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune

    Good, expensive, easygoing fun. It's no masterpiece, but why should Soderbergh -- or anybody -- get three in a row? show more
