Ten remakes that beat the originals

Posted by , 17 December 2008

Ocean's Eleven (2001)

Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jnr; how could you go wrong? By getting pissed every night in Vegas. The original was ‘pure shite’, but the idea was golden: cram as many fast-talking, fabulous suit-wearing, suave, Hollywood A-listers into every shot and play Elvis tunes whilst they rob a casino. George and Co’s remake was therefore choca with so much eye-candy, that audiences lapped it up faster than you (and all your drunken mates) could say: “How hard do you think it’d really be to rob a bank?”

Feel-good, fabulous-looking, witty and with enough twists to keep the Guardian readers happy – perfect.
