* DetectiveMole: [[spoiler:Both elder Caldwells are legendary thieves and con people who happen to have built a career as law enforcement agents as their cover. Considering that they use said covers' seniority to arrest members of the Eleven at some point of the latter two films and keep them away from other law enforcement officers (and thus help their main con), they could be considered MoleInCharge as well]].

* The first film, '''''Ocean's Eleven (2001)''''', involves Danny, an ex-con fresh out of prison, approaching his buddy Rusty about performing a monumental heist. The goal? Rob the central vault of three UsefulNotes/LasVegas casinos at the same time, during a boxing match so that the grand total in the safe would be a little over $160 million. They gather the Eleven and come to learn that the man they are robbing, Terry Benedict, is a man whose principal crime seems to be that he's dating Danny's ''ex-wife'' Tess.
* The second film, '''''Ocean's Twelve (2004)''''', deals with repercussions of their heist, as Benedict tracks down the Eleven and demands recompense in full, plus interest. Seeing as almost none of the eleven were frugal with their money, this means they have to find some other heist that will pay off an equal amount. Because they are too well known in the US, they travel to Europe and receive an offer from a legendary retired ConMan in which they steal a very famous MacGuffin. They are hounded on one side by a cocky acrobat-thief who wants the same loot, and a FairCop Interpol agent on the other.
* The third, '''''Ocean's Thirteen (2007)''''', has a member of the eleven double-crossed by an unscrupulous land-owner, Willy Bank (Creator/AlPacino), with whom he was collaborating on the opening of a new casino. Danny convenes his gang to ruin this casino's opening night. This time, Benedict joins forces with them, [[EnemyMine as he has his own issues with Bank]].
* A SoftReboot, '''''Film/OceansEight (2018)''''', follows Danny's ex-con sister, Debbie Ocean (Creator/SandraBullock), who after getting released from prison herself plans a similar $150 million heist to take revenge on Creator/RichardArmitage.

This is the story of a crew of expert thieves as they prepare and execute multiple very difficult heists across several movies. It's called ''Ocean's Eleven'' because the leader's name is Danny Ocean, and there are eleven of them. Originally a remake of the 1960 film ''Film/{{Oceans 11}}'' starring Music/FrankSinatra and the Creator/RatPack, it went on to [[AdaptationDisplacement displace]] the original and spawn two sequels. All three films were directed by Creator/StevenSoderbergh. There is an upcoming spinoff, featuring an all-female cast: ''Film/OceansEight''.

Added DiffLines:

* ActorAllusion: Quite a few:
** Creator/GeorgeClooney talking to young actors about the risks of going from TV to film in ''Eleven'', referencing his [[OldShame poor decision]] to star in the critically derided ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'' while still starring in the critically acclaimed ''Series/{{ER}}''.
** Creator/JuliaRoberts having to pose as (and [[TalkingToYourself talk to]]) Julia Roberts in ''Twelve''.
** Toulour's dance through the lasers in ''Twelve'' is vaguely similar--and for the same purpose, stealing a priceless artifact--to what Creator/CatherineZetaJones did in ''Film/{{Entrapment}}''.
** Creator/BruceWillis' cameo in ''Twelve'' is a subtle reference to how he was originally considered to play Danny.
** In Creator/MattDamon's first scene in ''Thirteen'' he's [[Film/TheBourneSeries in a foreign country and filmed in blue-tinted, washed-out]] JitterCam. Also, his [[Film/TheBrothersGrimm fake nose]] in ''Thirteen''.
** Creator/BradPitt being told to settle down and have some kids in ''Thirteen'', referencing his then-relationship with Creator/AngelinaJolie.
** Creator/GeorgeClooney being told to lose weight ([[DyeingForYourArt he had gained a lot]] for ''Film/{{Syriana}}'') in ''Thirteen''.
** Danny delivers this gem to Bank (Creator/AlPacino) in ''Thirteen'': "[[Film/TheGodfather What I want; what's most important to me]] is that Reuben gets his share of the hotel restored." Also, the fact that Al Pacino muscles his partner out of a casino. Reuben fairs somewhat better than Moe Green.

** In ''Eleven'', too, when Reuben talks about all the failsafes casinos have to prevent theft. "They got cameras, they got vaults, they got watchers, they got locks. They got enough armed personnel to occupy Paris! Okay. [[UsefulNotes/NaziGermany Bad]][[LesCollaborateurs example.]]
