A Couple "Ocean's Twelve" Questions.

Just watched this DVD last night.. Pretty funny flick. Some confusing parts I have questions about.

1. When Bruce Willis goes up to "Julia Roberts" hotel room he asks her "How's Danny?" Now this is her actual (Tess) husband's name.. Is that a screwup or is there a Danny in Julia Roberts life too that we were supposed to know?

2. Who the heck is the kid on the train at the end with the "real" egg and how / why does he have it?

3. So if that kid had the real train and that french dude stole a fake, then Ocean's Twelve were just stealing another fake when they wen in with Tess?

1. Julia Robert's husband is Danial Moder, married 2002.

2. The kid was just an undercover courier for the museum/government or whoever was moving the egg. It is stated in the beginning that they often use decoys when transporting it. In this case they had a decoy go out in plain view while the real egg was quietly snuck out the side.

3. Yes. The real egg never made it to the museum. The Ocean's Twelve crew had it the whole time. They were tipped off to the kid on the train by LeMarc in order to set the frenchman up.

Now, can someone refresh my memory and explain why LeMarc put everyone thru all this? Was it just to reunite with his daughter, or am I forgetting something?

My guess is that he put them through it because Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Julia Roberts and company wanted a free trip to Europe and a paycheck. At least, that's the best explanation I can come up with for this film's plot..

I was under the impression that LeMarc got involved when he realized it was his fault that Toulour was blackmailing Ocean's Eleven after he didn't contest the American boasting that the Benedict Job was the greatest heist that was ever done. This was what caused Toulour to notify Benedict of the whereabouts of Ocean's Eleven and begin the contest. In helping Ocean's group, LeMarc happened to reunite with his daughter.

But reading what you said, i'm not so sure anymore. Maybe finding about his daughter happened first? Hmph.
