    i got kinda lost in the movie, there were a few questions i still had... the main one is why did they have to give terry the money in the first place?

    they coulda just gone on with their lives like it was, but la mark (zeta's dad) didnt say anything when the other guy commented on ocean being better then fox [on purpose].
    fox got jealous so he told terry where they all were so he could do his contest...
    wouldnt it have just been easier for the legend not trying to get fox into the contest so they could go on with their lives?

    also why were those characters even in there? most of them did nothing...
    it shoulda been called ocean's 6
    for the actual heist, they took 6 characters,
    1. zeta's dad told them where the real egg was going to be.
    2. the black guy was on the train but didnt do anything,
    3. ocean gave the signal,
    4/5. those 2 brothers or whatever caused a distraction,
    6. linus swapped the bags

    in 11 every person had an intricate part in the heist, this one was like OT SS 04, just a huge clusterfuck

    that being said, i liked the movie.
    while watching the movie I was thinking "why does everyone give such bad reviews, this is about as good as the first."
    the ending just kinda ruins the movie I guess.

    Overall a good movie, doesnt live up to Oceans Eleven though.

    I got exactly what i expected: a very fun movie with a cast that works incredibly well together. I didnt expect it to be up for any oscars or anything like that. I was not disappointed on bit.

    I thought it was too complicated. I thought the whole Julia Roberts thing really took you out of the movie. It definetly wasn't as good as Oceans 11.

    oceans 11 was better then 12.. 12 seemed like the actors were having more fun than the audience was. a bit of a wild goose chase

    that part was fairly odd. I thought the side discussions the characters had were hilarious though, like the stuff that could be heard when a character was not in the shot but was talking anway.

    What is with Bernie Mac and getting his toes done? In Bad Santa he does the same thing.

    I was very dissapointed, I went in expecting a movie that was as good as or better than Oceans 11, and that probably made it that much worse. I thought the part where Night Fox went through the laser grid was pretty cool though.

    This movie was one of the worst movies I've seen in a long time.....especially the part when Julia Roberts had to play herself....God, the writers have to hang themselves ASAP.

    Stupid plot, not enough casino-jacking, too much jokes that didn't fly...this thing went no where.

    worst movie ive seen in a long time, the plot was fuking ridiculous! i mean, i loved the first one, and even that plot was far fetched and a bit ambitious, but this was all over the place, and the final "wrap up" where we find out what really happened had me stumped. i was sitting there thinking "how the fuck did that happen??"

    In the first one, you could al least say to yourself, "aha, yes, now i see how they did it," whereas in this, you have no way of associating what actually happened with the meat of the movie. It seemed like they had given it to a bunch of teenages and said "write an ending (whatever you want) and we will just put it on the end with some cool music and sexy bitches..."

    Oceans 11 >>> Oceans 12
