I didn’t know what to expect as I entered the theater, ironically theater number 13, to see “Oceans Thirteen.” I must admit to not having seen the previous installments of this series. But I do recognize a family picture when I see it, and this isn’t it. There was a “GD” uttered not long into the picture, and we don’t approve films which take God’s name in vain. There are two utterances of this word and there was also another case of Biblical profanity and other strong language. Not to mention a sex scene which, although not long, was beyond the limits of family viewing.
There were a few laughs in the film, but I honestly found it to be slow moving. There were a lot of casino and gambling scenes, and a lot of mundane plot scenarios which didn’t help. Don’t gamble on “Ocean’s Thirteen.” Go see “Gracie” or “Shrek the Third” or one of our other Dove approved family films.
