Play • 2 hr 27 min

The house always wins. Play long enough, you never change the stakes. The house takes you. Unless, when that perfect hand comes along, you bet big, then you take the house. Join your favourite TransAtlantic podcasting crew – Ian, Liam, and Ethan - Georgia's been flagged by Terry Benedict - as we review a 21st century remake of the classic Rat Pack crime caper.  It's like playing with loaded dice in our 98th episode as we discuss:

  • The original choice to play Danny Ocean
  • Just how many shrimp Brad Pitt ate while filming one scene in particular
  • Why "A Little Less Conversation" was chosen over more typical Elvis Vegas tune, "Viva Las Vegas"
  • How much George Clooney paid Julia Roberts to meet her going rate
  • Can we overlook the Stockholm Syndrome of the film
  • We go through a plethora of plot holes
  • Ian tries to explain the appeal of Bernie Mac to a British audience that never saw his sitcom
  • Were there any side effects to Lennox Lewis' participation in the film?
  • Whether or not Ocean's Eleven is the Best Film Ever
