George Clooney returns to the director’s chair.  
Plot?  Something about gallivanting around WWII Europe trying to save priceless historical artefacts from destruction.  Look, it doesn’t matter.
Here’s the draw: George Clooney, Matt Damon, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Cate Blanchett.  They’ve even got Hugh Bonneville in there, direct from “Downton Abbey.”
It’s not like a great cast is a guarantee of a great film.  After all: The Counsellor*.  Or Ocean’s 13.  And George Clooney was behind Leatherheads.  But what the hey, I’m an optimist and I love a good romp.  La la la. –AJP

*Or The Counselor, if you are American.
