Ocean's Twelve | 2004 | PG-13 | - 3.4.5
George Clooney, Matt Damon, Brad Pitt, Don Cheadle, Carl Reiner, Elliott Gould, Scott Caan, Bernie Mac, Casey Affleck, Shaobo Qin, Julia Roberts and Catherine-Zeta Jones all reprise their roles from "Ocean's Eleven." This time around, the crew is given two weeks to live when the casino owner they robbed in the previous installment comes looking for his money, plus interest. They decide their only recourse is to commit another high-paying robbery, and while trying to find a target, another master thief (Vincent Cassel) challenges them to a steal-off contest. Also with Andy Garcia, Scott Caan, Peter Fonda, Robbie Coltrane, Eddie Izzard, Bruce Willis and Albert Finney. Directed by Steven Soderbergh. [2:05]

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.
We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.
Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
