Leave it to the Chairman of the Board to rope in a great director for the first Rat Pack movie, Ocean's Eleven. Lewis Milestone (All Quiet on the Western Front) did indeed direct 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 artefact than a good piece of entertainment. The tone of the film is curiously serious--much more so than Steven Soderbergh's fluffy 2002 remake--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 only for reasons of nostalgia.--Tom Keogh, Amazon.com [show more]

Classic crime comedy starring Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. In Las Vegas, suave gambling man Danny Ocean (Sinatra) has come up with a plan for one of the biggest heists in the city's history: to rob five casinos on New Year's Eve. To pull it off, he gathers together a bunch of his old wartime buddies, who prepare for the big night with military precision. However, when the zero hour arrives, the gang face a few unexpected problems, and suddenly Ocean's sure-fire big score doesn't look so certain after all. The cast also includes Peter Lawford, Angie Dickinson, Joey Bishop and Cesar Romero.
