Ocean's Twelve ★★½ 2004 (PG-13)

The gang's all back, enjoying themselves mightily in this undemanding but fun sequel. It's taken three years but casino boss Terry Benedict (Garcia) has tracked down Danny Ocean (Clooney), who's now remarried to Tess (Roberts), and demands repayment of his $160 mil or else. Having spent his share of the dough, Danny gets the boys together and he and partner Rusty (Pitt) come up with a plan that takes them all a-thieving in various picturesque European cities. New to the adventure are Interpol agent Isabel Lahiri (Zeta-Jones), who has an amorous past with Rusty, and top Euro thief Francois Toulour (Cassel) out to prove just who's the best criminal. A frivolous, good-looking romp all the way. 125m/C VHS, DVD .
