Ann and Les were amused but not equally by Ocean’s Thirteen (2007.) Every male in Hollywood seems to be in this third “Ocean’s” movie but, as always, leading the way is George Clooney , Brad Pitt, and Matt Damon as they hunt down the “bad guy” played by Al Pacino. The only female in the movie is Ellen Barkin. Les just enjoyed the summer-time caper feel of the movie. Ann tried to but was disappointed by the convoluted storyline. She thinks Mr. Damon didn’t need the fake nose. For their GREENLIGHT Rentals, Les recommends a movie with Ms. Barkin in the lead called Switch (1991.) In this Blake Edward’s comedy, a stereotypical male-pig is rejected in heaven and sent back to our world as a woman played by Ms. Barkin. Most of the fun of the movie comes from watching the other characters figure out who this woman is. It’s particularly hard for his former best friend played by Jimmy Smitts who has new feelings for his character. Ann also recommends an Ellen Barkin film but this time she plays Mr. Pacino’s equal and then brings him to his knees in Sea of Love (1989.)
