How are they going to get it all back? By pulling off another amazing plan. Written by
The story of this film was taken from "Honor Among Thieves", a screenplay treatment written by George Nolfi that was originally intended to be a John Woo vehicle. When it was decided that Ocean's Eleven (2001) was going to have a sequel, Warner Bros. asked Nolfi to rewrite the script, adjusting it for the Ocean's Eleven characters. See more »
After their arrest and subsequent "extradition," the thieves are seen being driven away from a "Polizia" Station. In actuality, they would have been arrested by the Carabinieri: a very separate and more militarized division of Italian law enforcement. In fact, one of the Carabinieri's specific jurisdictions is the investigation and recovery of stolen artwork. See more »
I can honestly say, which doesn't happen often, that I would have preferred to have just not seen this movie all together. I feel like the actors in this movie got together, realized they could do whatever they wanted and people would still come see it, and made a travesty of the first movie.
The heist is these actors taking a good movie, Ocean's 11, and using a sequel to steal about $7.50 per person in theaters. The story was a real sell-out, the characters were trying to be clever for the sake of being clever, and at the end you ask yourself "That's it?".
The majority of the movie was the actors just trying to fill up screen time. I'm sure at one time during the production they said something along the lines of "We're short a half hour! ... no worries! We'll just remove people from the plot for no reason ... and cameos ... ".
I don't want this to be a spoiler. But that's all you're going to get if you go see this movie. A spoiled version of the first.
