Should I watch Ocean's Twelve?
So, I've checked out a bunch of movies from the library (which let me tell you, is awesome), and one of them is Ocean's Twelve. Based on discussions with mourntx, there is some serious debate as to if I should bother watching it.

I'm curious as to what you think:

Should I watch Ocean's 12?

Sure, it's a good sequel!

I enjoyed it, mostly because I like bank robbin' movies with no other plot twists. :)

Even though it's two hours of your life that you'll never get back, it's probably enjoyable for the eyecandy.

I was kinda meh on it the first watching, but the second time was enjoyable.

NO!

Ocean's 11 was a stylish con movie.

Ocean's 12 is a bunch of pretty hollywood people doing a "hey look at me and our inside jokes, aren't we cute?" The fact they are making Ocean's 13 makes me want to punch someone in the groin.

It's a much more stylized piece than the first, and not as deliberately plotted; you really have to watch it a couple of times to see where certain threads weave in and out of the story. As for those who say it's just a chance for a bunch of actors to riff off of each other's personalities and wallow in inside jokes, see "Oceans 11," 1963.

The movie is meh but worth a lazy day viewing. If you fall asleep during it, there's nothing really lost.

Here's the deal. I didn't like it as much as the original, BUT - I was thoroughly entertained throughout the movie, and was absorbed in it (ie. I wasn't wondering how long till it ended, and wasn't distracted by other thoughts while watching it). It held my interest and amused me. For that, I'd say it's worth watching. And the cast is rather easy on the eyes, anyway :)
