So-so caper film, in the vein of its predecessor, "Ocean's Eleven," with much the same star-studded cast as before (George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon), joined here by Catherine Zeta-Jones and a couple of unbilled surprise cameos, this time with picturesque European locales. The larcenous crew, which has tried to go straight, must pay back entrepreneur Terry Benedict (Andy Garcia) from whose Vegas casino they stole $160 million in the first film. They set out after a Faberge egg, while outwitting a master jewel thief (Vincent Cassel). Steven Soderbergh's sequel is agreeable rather than grippingly suspenseful, and the script, by George Nolfi, more genial than truly witty, though there are some mildly surprising twists and turns along the way. Tongue-in-cheek glamorization of robbery, some crude language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
