Usually only the best movies get remade, but if truth be told, the original Oceanís Eleven isnít a very good movie. Lewis Milestone (of All Quiet on the Western Front fame) directed it with virtually no feeling at all for Las Vegas. Itís maybe the dullest, flattest-looking Vegas movie ever made. And it was acted with little vigor by the Rat Pack cast, who deliver amazingly stiff performances, especially Frank Sinatra who seems to sleepwalk throughout the movie.
