what parents need to know

Parents need to know that there's nothing much different here than in the two previous Ocean's movies. Expect some language ("s--t" and "son of a bitch" are as bad as it gets), occasional scenes with drinking and cigar smoking, brief images of generalized violence (protesting workers clash with police and toss Molotov cocktails that set a car on fire; a mild earthquake shakes a hotel), and a seduction scene (aided by pheromone-spiked cologne) that includes heavy breathing, some clutching, and cleavage. As always, the "heroes" are handsome, charming criminals out to rob a less-sympathetic criminal.

what families can talk about

  • Families can talk about what makes these con men so appealing. Does it help that their adversaries are always so awful? And what makes the bad guys seem bad, anyway? What parts of the movie are references to the era of the Rat Pack's original Ocean's Eleven? Do you think this movie romanticizes that time period/style? How does this movie compare to its two predecessors? Do you think there should be any more Ocean's movies?

Top Critic Reviews

Rotten: Ocean's Thirteen is one long set-up for a wholly unsatisfying and impotent climax.

- Brandon Fibbs, Colorado Springs Gazette, Thursday, June 24, 2010

Fresh: While it in no critical area improves upon the magic of its deliriously watchable original installment, it's flashier and funnier than expected.

While definitely meandering, and coming up short on the thrills that the first film delivered upon, "Ocean's Thirteen" is a definite upgrade on it's predecessor, adding new an loving characters, while, yes, still rehashing Andy Garcia's face. This film surely copies many of the plot points from the original, while adding fresh new twists to it, but falling a bit short on the believability, which is what was so fantastic about the first. The cast is back and better than ever, but the material just doesn't suit up to being as good as it used to be. Steven Soderbergh directs the hell out of this film and it shows. The unique transitions, which have complimented every film is seen a little less here, in which kind of made the film more effective. I can honestly say that I enjoyed this film, but it is in no way a great one. If you can sit through the second film, deifinitely give this one a go!

Thirteen returns to the boring/safe formula of every heist film ever without the fresh stylish take or all the character driven chemistry that made the first two so enjoyable. Don't fret though, the comedy is still sharp and set pieces more glamorous than ever but there's just no heart to the finale-like project. With the whole crew coming back to get revenge for an old mate there's not much emotion involved and it's just an unsolicited collection of witty humor at the expense of another Vegas shark. Don't get me wrong, I love watching the Ocean's crew work but the plot simply didn't have the drama or consequential emotion of the first movie. Insubstantial, mildly amusing, well-acted entertainment
