Is she ever? I can't think of a single
movie since the 90's that she was
good in. She'll be 51 this year,
long past the expiration date for
anything but the mom of grown
kids, or some middle age crisis
movie for menapausal actresses.
Meryl Streep she's not.



I was never a huge fan. I never disliked her acting, but she was never a actress I would go out of my way to see.

And you wonder why you can't get laid?



I'll be 70 next year, not really wondering
a whole lot.

Two superstars in one movie! If you
want to take your life after this clip,
I advise against seeing the movie.

Thanks for the offer, but I'll save you the time and hassle and just look it up myself. It sounds like that it's so bad that there's no point in trying to avoid spoilers on it since I wouldn't want to watch it to begin with.



I don't think it's that bad. Watch it once, just for the jokes and a couple of things that matter somewhat to 13. Just don't expect to love it.

Does skipping 12 and moving to 13 directly work out okay for the most part?



Look, they're all silly dopey movies. They
were made as a lark, the cast had one
long party on all of them. They're tongue
in cheek caper adventures, and have
to be viewed that way. Figuring out
which are better is like breaking down
Three Stooges movies and examining
them. Just suspend your disbelief and
watch.

I saw Oceans 12 when it first came out while visiting Sun City casino -- I was supremely disappointed - the film felt disjointed and hastily put together

Sure you can compare them. Which did you enjoy most? Compared to 13, the heist in 11 was almost believable. Kind of like comparing professional wrestling of the early 1980s vs late 1980s. Neither was real, but before about 1984 they at least acted as if it was.

When they started to say how Tess looked like Julia Roberts was when I was ready to leave. Just got to the point of "get to the end so I can go home."
