This is the worst old movie I have watched. Each and every woman is scantily dressed. There are strippers and many clubs where all the women are barely dressed are treated and talked to as sexual objects. The misogyny and sexism runs ramped in this awful 'classic'. Even the women treat the other women as pawns. HORRIBLE!

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Is It Any Good?

The 1960 Ocean's 11 comes off today as a dialogue-heavy escapade that will probably give younger viewers a guess-you-had-to-be-there feeling. It boasts an immortal ensemble cast of some of America's biggest stars and recording artists, and while the performers are charming, the real fun all happened in Las Vegas in 1960. There's lots of easygoing banter, the heist itself generates little tension, and Ol' Blue Eyes, Dino, and Sammy are off-screen a lot while the supporting cast fills in.

The already-lengthy plot seems poised for a couple more twists, but an unexpected complication suddenly and sharply wraps it up. Ocean's 11 isn't sloppy or slapdash -- it just feels like watching the legendary group of good buddies share a joke you aren't quite in on yourself.
