Mayday, mayday: We're a hit! I repeat: We are a hit! Oscar's latest golden boy has taken over the helm; People Magazine's multi-million-dollar cover crew has replaced the Rat Pack and witty, wry dialogue has infiltrated our basic caper framework, which has sustained us for over 40 years, Sir. Do you copy? Affirmative, Commander, but it's like they say, with the right cast and crew, anything is possible. Over. In this remake of a 1960 dud, director Steven Soderbergh leads Hollywood's A-listed actors with virtuosity and vibrant speed. George Clooney plays Frank Sinatra's old role of Danny Ocean, the cool ex-con with a devious plan to knock over several major Vegas casinos. Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts and Matt Damon are just a few more names added to this 2001 version, along with intellectual plot twists involving hidden agendas, high-tech wizardry and subtle humor, which the original film desperately needed and this update now delivers.
