Fun movie. Lots in in-jokes, lots of regular jokes, oodles of style. First movie I've seen in a very long time for which I've wanted to buy the soundtrack without really wanting to own the movie. George Clooney could have used a little extra screen time, I think, as the ostensible lead, since he was kind of lost in the jumble. I was scratching my head for a long time afterwards wondering how Rob Reiner managed to become such an old man so fast, and then I realized that it was Carl Reiner. At the end of the principal cast list in the end credits, it says: "And introducing Julia Roberts."

I saw Oceans 11 here in Vegas on opening night. It was this huge news item for a day or two. When we came out of the theater, there was a news crew interviewing people about how the movie was. Kevin and I watched as this really enthusistic guy talked about "the rich plot development and wonderfull dramatic stylings of the cast." He was just doing it for show to be on the news that night.

Did he make it on the news? I guess you don't know or you would have said.

What fucking dramatic stylings? Not only was it a comedy, but each actor got what, 10 minutes of screen time?

I know. It was Jason talking to the news crew. No, wait. Jason wouldn't have liked Ocean's Eleven, because it's good.

I haven't really watched TV these days, except for taping the shows that I really like. So, I don't know the answer.

And if Jason were to do it, he probably would've panned the film like you said. :-)
