Ocean's Thirteen (***)

There really doesn't need to be an Ocean's Thirteen, but since we have one, we might as well enjoy. Building greatly upon the disappointment that was Twelve, but not quite matching Eleven, the latest Ocean's flick is ever so slight, but it's cool and entertaining. It's a lark and it knows exactly what it is. There's no real drama or tension, and nothing's really at stake. But it's stylishly directed by Stephen Soderbergh and the cast seems to be enjoying themselves. Even Al Pacino tones it down a few notches as the main baddie. You don't really miss Julia Roberts at all. Instantly forgettable, but a surprisingly good time while it's on. You can do much worse for a Friday night out at the movies.
