Flick Pick: Ocean's Thirteen

Ocean's Thirteen
(Warner Bros., 2007)

The monster conclusion to the trilogy. Soderbergh and his stars have learned how to have fun making fun of themselves, the return to Vegas pays huge dividends, David Holmes' score is again wonderful, and Matt Damon's nose definitely plays. Al Pacino makes a great villain, the caper spirals up appreciably over the first effort, and it all gets brought home nicely in the finale.
With the subsequent death of Bernie Mac in 2008, and Carl Reiner being, at this time, 92 years young, further sequels are unlikely. Except Hollywood.
