    Wall Street Journal Joe Morgenstern

    These people -- the filmmakers as well as the cast -- have brought a rare sense of camaraderie to their work. Unfortunately, they forgot to bring a script. They even forgot, in the midst of their joyous self-involvement, to take good pictures of the places they visited.

    Entertainment Weekly Lisa Schwarzbaum

    What's on screen is lazy, second-rate, phoned-in -- a heist in which it's the audience whose pockets have been picked.

    The Hollywood Reporter Kirk Honeycutt

    Stephen Mirrione's fast-paced editing and David Holmes' pop-rock score propel the story ever forward whether one follows the twists or not.

    At the rate things are going, all of Hollywood will put in about a day's work on "Ocean's Seventeen."

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    The movie is all about behavior, dialogue, star power and wiseass in-jokes. I really sort of liked it.

For Families provided by Common Sense Media

Iffy for 12+

A top-rate cast makes up for the thin plot.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this heist film has a few bad words and some mild, non-explicit sexual references. Characters drink and smoke, and of course most of the movie's heroes are thieves and liars who joke about not having any morals.

  • Families can talk about why it's hard for Danny to give up being a thief. Why are Tess and Isabel drawn to men who do not tell the truth? Why are movie audiences drawn to them? What matters to each of the eleven? What would you do if you had $16 million?
