Ocean's 13 Quotes From Paul Anka "I Slice Like A Hammer" Rant

Sean, Jake, and Boston Irish all write to tell me that Al Pacino's villainous character in Ocean's 13 quotes the infamous, hilariously profane Paul Anka rant not once but at least twice.

Boston Irish sends this review quoting Pacino's character:

I move, I move quick and when I do, I slice like a hammer.

-- Willy Bank (Al Pacino)

Jake says later in the film...

Al Pacino [says] to an event organizer: "No, it happens at 12 exactly. Don't make a maniac out of me."

Incidentally, two of the guys who saw it offer basically the same review: Eh, but a decent enough distraction for two hours. Which pretty much is what the whole series aspires to and mostly achieves (although the two-cute-by-half and too-complicated-by-seven-eighths Oceans 12 didn't really manage to satisfy that low ambition).

I have to admit the plot seems halfway fun (rig a casino so that everyone wins, and thus the villianous owner loses tons of money) and it's pretty funny seeing Assclown #1 and Assclown #2 in their silly seventies gay-porno moustaches.

Gay Vibe: Not that these movies are bad -- well, the second one wasn't very good at all -- but does there seem to be this super-duper gay vibe running throughout them?

Maybe it's just me, but all the cutesy banter between the dudes sounds a lot like the flirtation between romantic leads in a light screwball comedy. Throwing Julia Roberts and Catherine Zeta-Jones into the mix seems to me a lot like adding in the "Aunt Harriet" character in Batman -- just tossing in a random female here or there to reassure you you're not just watching a chaste gay romantic fantasy between Danny and Rusty and... whatever Matt Damon's character is named. "Stinky Pete" or whatever they call him.
