MOVIE AND MUSIC REVIEWS

A fun flick that makes no sense

Sometimes the best things in life don't make sense, like how chicken noodle soup stays hot forever or cans of Coke don't go flat for days.

Movie Reviews
"Ocean's Twelve" is the same deal. It makes little sense, but it's really fun.

In this sequel to "Ocean's Eleven" (itself a remake of the '60s Rat Pack movie), Danny Ocean (George Clooney) reassembles his crew of thieves to pull off a heist in two weeks.

Terry Benedict (Andy Garcia) wants the money back that the group stole from him plus interest. The total comes to $197 million. Too well-known to work in the United States, the crew goes to Europe, where they cross paths with a master thief known as the Night Fox, played by French actor Vincent Cassel, and an Europol agent (Catherine Zeta-Jones) who is the ex-girlfriend of crew member Rusty (Brad Pitt). The Night Fox wants to prove himself the greatest thief in the world by taking on Ocean and his men.

The plot twists of "Ocean's Twelve" are either so incomprehensible that they make no sense, even after they've been explained, or so obvious that I guessed them quickly. Still, the movie is fun, interesting and funny with great work by Julia Roberts, who, as Danny's wife Tess, impersonates herself for the heist, and Matt Damon, who steals the show from his more famous co-stars as the twitchy, naive thief, Linus. As for the identity of the 12th crew member, you'll have to watch it to find out.
