Ocean's Eleven - 1960 vs. 2001
Ocean's Eleven - 1960 vs. 2001
  • 1960 inflation adj. take: $25 million
  • 2001 take: $150 million
  • In the original 1960 version, the Rat Pack knocked off five casinos in Las Vegas, but the size of their take was never specified. Danny Ocean, played by Frank Sinatra, rallied his old war buddies "to liberate millions of dollars" from the vaults.

    In the 2001 remake with George Clooney as the titular ringleader, the amount was specified: $150 million, to be divided among the 11 thieves. This is the cash reservoir that Nevada casinos are supposedly required to have on a "fight night."

    Deflating the 2001 take to 1960 dollars results in a $25 million pot back then - not a bad haul even by today's standards. Since one of the thieves from the original story died during the heist, each of the other Rat Packers would have walked away with a cool $2.5 million.
