Editorial Reviews

Additional Features

DVD extras include short documentary vignettes on the five casinos featured in the film, with cocktail waitresses and showgirls reminiscing about the glory days of the Flamingo, Sands, et al. (There's also an Easter egg hidden in a poker chip, describing the Casino Legends Hall of Fame.) An excerpt from a Tonight Show hosted by Frank Sinatra is included, with ol' Blue Eyes somewhat fuzzily recalling the shooting of Ocean's Eleven with guest Angie Dickinson. Angie also lends a few tidbits to the film's commentary track, which is otherwise dominated by the observations of Frank Sinatra Jr. He proves an invaluable guide to the good old days of Vegas as well as the identities of Vegas personalities roped into appearing as extras in the film; he's also prone to somber overstatement about the "poetry" of the screenplay and wondering whether people really appreciated the magnificent talent of Cesar "Butch" Romero. Wonderful. --Robert Horton

Product Description

Leave it to the Chairman of the Board to rope in a great director for the first Rat Pack movie. Lewis Milestone (All Quiet on the Western Front) indeed directed this 1960 caper movie starring Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford, and Joey Bishop; but the results now seem like more of a historical artifact than a good time. The tone of the film is curiously serious--one somehow expected that the Rat Pack would have made a more buoyant first picture. But it is something to see these guys together, if largely for nostalgia reasons. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars "Coo-Coo, Baby!" December 2, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
OCEAN'S 11 is a real time-capsule classic. The ultimate "heist" movie, starring The Chairman of The Board, Dino, Sammy, Joey, Peter, and the rest of The Rat Pack, this one is worth seeing just to watch "the boys" hanging out together and getting into trouble.

The late Fifties All-Adult ambience of Vegas is priceless, as is the hep cat cool which just oozes off the screen. Let's face it: How many men could get away with calling the President of the United States "Chickee Baby"? Well, Frank called JFK precisely that. Even Bill Clinton was never that swingin'!

The storyline is a standard potboiler involving a group of old Army buddies setting up the biggest theft in American history, five Vegas casinos. Frankie ain't doin' no singin', and the film's a bit slow moving in spots. They're playing it a little too straight and serious,and there are less laughs than chuckles, and no sex, but the film was a product of it's times (1960) and still had to get past the censors in those days. Peter Lawford is over the line as a forty year old Mama's Boy trying for the Big Score.

No matter how good the Clooney remake is, he won't touch this one at all...There's only one Rat Pack!

Call this an addendum:

After seeing the Clooney release of OCEAN'S 11, I decided to add a few more thoughts. Well, the new movie is ALMOST better---more action and more pacing, better scriptwriting. In short, a technically superior film in most ways, which is marred by the one thing you can't put a price tag on---the chemistry.

Although Clooney is grand (he swanks across the screen like a Bond villain on vacation), Brad Pitt is appropriately and irreverently serious, and Carl Reiner is outrageously funny, the "new crew" can't replicate the charisma of the Rat Pack.

3.0 out of 5 stars See The Rat Pack "Hijack The Town" in "Ocean's 11" January 28, 2002
Format:DVD
"Ocean's 11", produced in 1960, was the first of a series of films starring members of the Rat Pack (Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy David Jr., Peter Lawford, and Joey Bishop at the time. Lawford and Bishop would kicked out by Sinatra later on) for Warner Brothers and this movie was far and away the most popular of the bunch. Many of the actors who hung out with Pack like Shirley McLaine would find themselves in various cameo roles in this film. Though Sinatra was looking for a film script that he and his pals could do together, it was Peter Lawford who found the book "Ocean's 11" and the rest is history.
Although the DVD cover calls this movie a heist caper, the script must rank as the most easygoing heist even presented on screen. The title character, ex-paratrooper Danny Ocean, who is played by Sinatra, calls together ten members of his old unit to plan and execute a multi-million dollar robbery of five Las Vegas Strip casinos and much of the beginning of the film is spent gathering up the team, spending time with a few of them to see why they decide to join in and spending time watching Danny tangle with the women in his life and the boys tormenting their underworld backer. The planned heist appears to be foolproof and remarkably easy as long as everyone does his job. Naturally since this is 1960 and the bad guys still can't really win, a few twists in the plot are thrown in.
Surprisely, Sinatra does not give a very good performance in the film, especially when compared to his earlier work. Of the rat packers, only Peter Lawford gives a solid performance throughout. Even Dean Martin, with his relaxed style of acting, slums it on occasion. It is the other actors like Akim Tamiroff, Patrice Wymore, George Raft, and Cesar Romero who give the best performances.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's All About the Swagger, Baby! July 12, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
People argue about "cool." Some say John Coltrane is cool. Other say Clapton, Dylan, or Lennon are "cool." Lenny Bruce is "cool" to some, and Miles Davis epitomizes "cool" for others. For me, there isn't a man who has EVER lived who personified "cool" more that Mr. Sinatra. You can see what I mean here in the first motion picture that casts the infamous "Rat Pack" in major roles, "Oceans 11." Playing an ex-WWII soldier, Sinatra's Danny Oceans plans the greatest heist in history: Rob five Las Vegas casinos at once on New Year's Eve. It's a bold plot for a bold cast. There's Frank with his "I own the world" charisma. There's Sammy Davis Jr. with his usual flair for the song and dance routine. "Deano" Dean Martin also croons in the picture, and Peter Lawford, the only non-singer of the four main Rat Packers, still holds the audience with his charm and wit.
This film shows what Las Vegas was like when it was an "adults only" city. This was when Sinatra and his boys ruled Vegas, and we should be thankful that they had the foresight to put some of the flavor of the times on film.
Now, where's my martini? I'm late for my craps game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ocean's 11 January 7, 2005
Format:DVD
This is my favorite movie. I always had 2 copies, one to hoard and one to loan. The remake would be a good movie, if they didn't try to tie in to the original. But when they invite comparison, they come off the big loser.

The REAL Ocean's 11 has the best ending, the perfect ending. The cast is incomparable. From all reports, Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin would wander the casino after filming, and take over tables as the dealer. Losers were declared winners, and the owner didn't care - they were bringing in too many customers for the owner to complain about paying out a little extra.

Everyone I have introduced to Ocean's 11, regardless of age, has been extremely complimentary. One even said he liked the remake - until he saw the original. And he was a young Vice President of a company which employed more than 500.

The remake would have been good - if they hadn't stolen the name and tried to be a remake. As a stand alone, it's okay. As a remake, it pales miserably by comparison. If you want to see a great movie, see the original, the REAL, Ocean's 11.
