    The slickest, cleanest, tightest, sexiest 127 minutes there’s ever been, or ever will be. The hottest people in the world being directed by a man who absolutely knows that these are the hottest people in the world, and weaponises it. I could’ve watched this again as soon as it ended.

Oceans Eleven more like Ocean’s Heaven this shit rooooooooooooooocks George Clooney gets punched
