Catherine and I went to see Oceans Twelve tonight. Except Catherine thought we were going to see The Life Aquatic. And she couldn’t figure out why they never got around to going out on the ocean. It was an echo of the whole Jungle Fever vs. Jungle Book fiasco that occured the day after our first night before.
I think you might have missed a great movie, but I’m not sure since I’ve only seen “The Life Aquatic” and not “Oceans 12.”
Personally I liked Ocean’s 12 better, but it’s really an apples to oranges comparison.
If you are a fan of The Life Aquatic, rent The Royal Tenenbaums http://www.imdb.com/title/tt02… Much of the same cast, and I thought it was funnier.
