Trivia

The prison Danny Ocean is paroled from - North Jersey State Prison - is actually East Jersey State Prison, formerly known as Rahway State Prison. This facility was the setting of Scared Straight! (1978). There is actually a Northern State Prison located across the highway from Newark (NJ) International Airport. Parole hearings at "Rahway State" are held in a conference room near the inmate dining hall. The area he was having his parole interview was in the "Drill Hall" (indoor gym/recreation area). The cell block that Danny was being escorted from is "3-Wing" - a regular, working cell block. The inmates were either confined to their cells or relocated to other areas of the prison for the filming. The "Officer" escorting Danny out of the cell block and securing the gate, was actually a Lieutenant, and at the time, was the coordinator of the "Scared Straight" program. See more »

Goofs

In the scene where Rusty is convincing Saul to become a member of the team at the dog races, an African-American couple can be seen in the background walking across the scene in the same direction twice in two consecutive shots. See more »

Tasty cast in very cool and slick movie
5 March 2002 | by Jenny HoSee all my reviews

What a tasty prospect for a film: George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Andy Garcia, Julia Roberts and for the young at heart amongst us, Joshua Jackson of 'Dawson's Creek' fame in a cameo role -all directed by the Oscar winning Steven Soderbergh!

George Clooney plays Danny Ocean who soon after being released from prison, puts together a team of eleven to undertake a robbery of the three biggest casinos in Las Vegas in an attempt to bring in a reward of $150 million. What soon becomes clear is that it's not the money which will give Danny the ultimate satisfaction, but the opportunity to get revenge on the owner of the three casinos he is robbing -Benedict (Andy Garcia) who just happens to be the new beau of Danny's ex, Tess (Julia Roberts).

Some of the gang of eleven are more memorable than others -especially the Chinese acrobat, the explosives expert with a dodgy cockney accent and the medallion wearing Reuben -aka Monica Gellar's dad! The cast are brilliant at acting cool -even if all Brad Pitt is doing is snacking on the screen (he does this a lot!), you are still transfixed by him because he looks so good on screen.

What makes the story so intriguing is the fact that Danny's mission seems so impossible: security in the casinos is paramount and the route to the reward is littered with obstacles. The number of close calls that the gang is faced with is great fun and one can't help but root for these crooks throughout the film. It is also refreshing to watch a film which is dominated by male stars and is not filled with macho swearing. Instead, we have a banter between the stars which is indicative of their camaraderie.

'Ocean's Eleven' is a welcome option in the choice of movies available at the moment which is dominated by Oscar nominees that are not going to be everyone's cup of tea. With this film, it's simply a case of sit back and enjoy the fun!
