Ocean's Twelve [2004] [PG-13] - 3.4.5



Although our site is very popular, the current economic climate has reduced our revenues just when we need extra security to prevent attacks from hackers who don't like what we do. If you think what we do is worthwhile, please donate or become a member.


Unlike the MPAA we do not assign one inscrutable rating based on age, but 3 objective ratings for SEX/NUDITY, VIOLENCE/GORE and PROFANITY on a scale of 0 to 10, from lowest to highest, depending on quantity and context.

George Clooney, Matt Damon, Brad Pitt, Don Cheadle, Carl Reiner, Elliott Gould, Scott Caan, Bernie Mac, Casey Affleck, Shaobo Qin, Julia Roberts and Catherine-Zeta Jones all reprise their roles from "Ocean's Eleven." This time around, the crew is given two weeks to live when the casino owner they robbed in the previous installment comes looking for his money, plus interest. They decide their only recourse is to commit another high-paying robbery, and while trying to find a target, another master thief (Vincent Cassel) challenges them to a steal-off contest. Also with Andy Garcia, Scott Caan, Peter Fonda, Robbie Coltrane, Eddie Izzard, Bruce Willis and Albert Finney. Directed by Steven Soderbergh. [2:05]

SEX/NUDITY 3 - A man and a woman kiss while in bed; she wears a low-cut nightgown that reveals cleavage and bare shoulders. A man and a woman kiss in several scenes, and a man kisses a woman's hand. Two women in a jail cell ogle another woman as she enters the cell (the two women are dressed in short shorts and low-cut tops that reveal cleavage, bare abdomens and bare thighs). A bare-chested man with pajama pants on leaves a bedroom where a woman sleeps. We see many nude statues of men revealing bare buttocks and genitals. A woman wears a low-cut, short top that reveals cleavage and bare abdomen to the belly button. A woman wears a low-cut top that reveals cleavage. A man and a woman flirt in a few scenes.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - A car explodes in a parking lot as a man walks toward it, and it is thrown into the air in flames and crashes down onto a neighboring car (the man is uninjured). A man threatens to kill several men. A woman pulls a gun on a man who is in her house when she returns. Two men scuffle briefly, and several others join in with pushing and shoving. A man with a cane pokes and shoves two other men. A man acts threateningly toward a woman when he asks about her husband's whereabouts (he taps her on the shoulder with his cane). A woman talks about the horrible conditions of a jail (as a ploy to make a man give evidence). Several people are arrested, they are held by the arms, they struggle and are handcuffed. We see grieving people gathered at a funeral and find out later that a woman's mother has died. A man talks about his mother having killed his uncle with a tea cozy. A man jumps out of a window (not terribly high off the ground, and he is presumably uninjured). A man is chased by the police and runs into a few people. A man watches a woman for an extended period of time (he appears to be following her and spying on her).

PROFANITY 5 - 15 F-words (14 bleeped by a buzzing sound), 2 sexual references, 4 scatological terms, 7 mild obscenities, 3 derogatory terms for the mentally handicapped, 10 religious exclamations. [profanity glossary]

Our Ratings Explained

Become a Member

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.

INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
