The Gang: The Ocean crew
The Film: Ocean's Eleven (2001)/Ocean's Twelve (2004)/Ocean's Thirteen (2007)
Led By: Danny Ocean (George Clooney)
Why Are They Cool? They're lead by George Clooney and Brad Pitt, for crying out loud! How are they not among the coolest gangs ever created?
This rag-tag assortment of specialist criminals is first forged into place by Ocean when he sets his sights on robbing three casinos at once, all under the nose of owner Terry Benedict (Andy Garcia).
Among them are the dumb-as-tyres Malloy brothers (Scott Caan and Casey Affleck) who are nevertheless ace wheelmen and fixers and the dodgy cock-er-nee accented Basher Tarr (Don Cheadle) who knows how to make things go boom with grace and power.
They're slick, they're funny, and they steal from bad guys. What's not to like?
