Number 500 on the list.
A heist movie. Remake of a brat pack movie and a definitely vehicle for George Clooney, Brad Pitt and to a lesser extent Matt Damon, Don Cheadle and Julia Roberts to be terribly cool.
Blair pointed out that Brad Pitt is almost always eating, which was pretty funny. He looked so young! And Matt Damon’s Linus was adorably goofy, especially when he had to wear a suit and be suave.
Overall it was a funny, fun movie.
I dunno if it’s one of the 500 best movies I’ve ever seen. It made me want to watch similar films like The Italian Job, Blues Bothers or Mission Impossible or something.
It’s hard not to be charmed though. I enjoyed it, I laughed, I was rooting for them. I just kinda feel like, it’s a bit forgettable. Maybe there’s been too many movies of this kind, maybe it was too self conscious of how cool it was?
Good start to the project though, it was cute, and I may watch it again some day. Maybe.
