I’m a big fan of the original movie, even though I’m not really a big Rat Pack fan. I think that love of the original is why I wasn’t as impressed with this one. It was nice enough but not nearly as funny. In many ways besides Danny Ocean and the heist there really isn’t much in common with the 1960’s original. That being said it had it’s fun parts. I liked some of the characters, particularly Basher Tarr (Don Cheadle) and Saul Bloom (Carl Reiner). I guess the I wanted the characters to be a bit more larger than life, like Sinatra et al.
I plan on eventually watching 12, 13, and 14 and hope the chemistry improves.
