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 HortonSee all Editorial Reviews

Sometimes you shake your head at a remake. "The Women"? Really? With those actresses? A sequel to "Mama Mia"? I didn't know "Oceans 11" was a remake, and now that I've seen the original I could care less--it's so much better as a modern film. Even its lesser sequels are better than this dated effort.
The problem here, aside from the fact that Sinatra doesn't even sing---well, either does Dean Martin or Sammy Davis Jr. (Or does he, I think Davis did have a number---black people almost always had to sing in those days, white racism being what it was).
The problem is that the engineering of the heist takes up the entire movie---the heist is over in less than a beer run---even in my small apartment. The movie goes on and on and on, and you don't get anywhere interesting, and then when you finally get to the heist, it's over in a flash.
So watch the new one, forget this one. There must be a good Sinatra film to watch. This isn't even a good Rat Pack movie. Are there any?
Martin giving us a glimpse of his night club act is a treat. You don't see Frank Sinatra said singing in this movie so don't expect it. I wasn't disappointed because he made up for it throughout the movie with his acting. This is a wonderful movie to escape in and doesn't have the foul language, the raw sex and the brutality that most of today's movies have. It's a movie to lose yourself into.
Eleven buddies (led by Danny Ocean, aka Sinatra) plan and pull off a theft at five Las Vegas casinos simultaneously. They get away with their haul, but are later confronted by an ex-gangster who's figured out what occurred and is demanding half the take.
Shirley MacLaine's impromptu appearance as a tipsy gal is a highlight; George Raft (who was a personal friend of Vegas pioneer Bugsy Siegel) portrays a casino owner and Red Skelton appears as himself. Richard Boone is the voice of an unseen minister; TV quiz show announcer George Fenneman can be heard in a phone conversation with an interrogating sheriff. Watch for one-time cowboy star Hoot Gibson in his last screen appearance, as a roadblock deputy.
The Rat Pack's next adventure was SERGEANTS 3, a 1962 remake of "Gunga Din." Frank and Dean also show up at the end of Bob Hope and Bing Crosby's last road picture, THE ROAD TO HONG KONG (1961).
