What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that there's nothing much different here than in the two previous Ocean's movies. Expect some language ("s--t" and "son of a bitch" are as bad as it gets), occasional scenes with drinking and cigar smoking, brief images of generalized violence (protesting workers clash with police and toss Molotov cocktails that set a car on fire; a mild earthquake shakes a hotel), and a seduction scene (aided by pheromone-spiked cologne) that includes heavy breathing, some clutching, and cleavage. As always, the "heroes" are handsome, charming criminals out to rob a less-sympathetic criminal.
- Families can talk about what makes these con men so appealing. Does it help that their adversaries are always so awful? And what makes the bad guys seem bad, anyway? What parts of the movie are references to the era of the Rat Pack's original Ocean's Eleven? Do you think this movie romanticizes that time period/style? How does this movie compare to its two predecessors? Do you think there should be any more Ocean's movies?
