TOP5 TOP MUST-SEE DVDS NEW MOVIES OCEAN'S TWELVE .....

One gets the feeling that the cast of this sequel to Steven Soderbergh's remake had more fun making the movie than we have watching it. The Ocean's 11-strong team (with Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Matt Damon again) swans around Europe after the Las Vegas casino boss from whom they stole money demands it back.

Talking animals may not be your cup of tea, but this zebra (voiced by Frankie Muniz) who thinks he's a racing thoroughbred seems a nice enough chap.

He's egged on by Hayden Panettiere's teenage stable girl and a host of barnyard friends to achieve his ambition in this friendly children's movie.
