Only days after being released from prison, Danny Ocean (Clooney) recruits a team of specialized 'heist men' to rob three Las Vegas casinos: Bellagio, The Mirage and the MGM Grand, all of which store their money in a central, high-tech bank vault beneath the Bellagio. The man who owns these casinos, Terry Benedict (Garcia), is the lover of Danny Ocean's former wife, Tess Ocean (Roberts). As the plot unfolds it become apparent that part of the 'sting' is to trip up Benedict with regard to Tess, so that she'll come running back to Danny. With financing and backing from a wealthy ex-casino owner (who was bitter at the way he was bought out by Benedict), the robbers foil the elaborate security mechanisms to get to the vault.

Unlike the original film, in which the crew is made of 82nd Airborne veteran 'undetectable' amateurs, this crew is composed of underworld professionals; two with recent prison records which are utilized to the crew's advantage. It's much more similar to The Sting, than to the original Ocean's Eleven. (Some have also noted similarities to The Magnificent Seven, with Clooney and Pitt resembling Yul Brynner and Steve McQueen assembling their team.)

The elaborate sting involves a number of interlocked distractions which must be coordinated precisely. Benedict is the object of the sting, as well as the millions in the vault. Basher Tarr (Cheadle), is the explosives man whose job it is to shut off the power to the city. The purpose of that, however, is ultimately to allow two of the crew to rappel down an elevator shaft, and also to cause some distraction for casino security and monitoring. This is accomplished by a debilitating "electromagnetic pulse" generated by Basher's "pinch," an elaborate fictional device with illuminated coils, which they steal at night from the fictitious California Institute of Advanced Science (apparently based at UC Irvine), with CIAS security guards just missing apprehending small-time crook Linus Caldwell (Damon).

In addition to a brief city-wide power outage, they need certain access codes to get inside to the elevator. These are updated daily, and are carried on Benedict's person. Linus, a skilled pickpocket, is introduced to Benedict as a member of the Nevada Gaming Commission, tracking down a dealer who has a record. However, the dealer in fact is a plant, a member of the crew played by Bernie Mac. This enables Linus to get into the same room with Benedict when they question the dealer. This is also to extinguish any future suspicion of the disappearance of Mac's character from his work at the casino after the robbery. A staged scuffle is created, at which point Linus picks Benedict's pocket. Linus doubles back saying he forgot his pager, as Benedict hurries on to a boxing match where Tess waits for him.

A third element, another distraction, is created by Saul Bloom (Reiner) posing as a nebulous and shady Russian money man. He convinces Benedict to let him store some jewels in the deep vault, overnight. In the process of doing so, he stages a heart attack to distract the local guards from seeing Linus doubling back.

Another element is control of that very surveillance video. As Linus doubles back, while Saul stages the distraction, a third member cuts in with pre-shot video of empty hallways, and an empty elevator. Meanwhile, the security is worried about Saul, as Rusty dashes in with two paramedics, also members of the crew, who declare the man 'dead' in order to get him out of there.

Danny has joined Linus in the elevator shaft ready to rappel, and Rusty is wheeling away the 'dead' Saul. Both get on cellphones to call their control center - blackout the town.

Meanwhile, the last element is the 'greaseman', known by his circus act as "The Amazing Yen". A Chinese acrobat and contortionist, able to squeeze himself into tight spaces and leap around, he is concealed in a money cart, which is placed inside the vault. He exits the cart and jumps to shelving in the vault to avoid scanners that are knee or ankle high.

After the brief blackout, Danny and Linus find themselves looking out the elevator at a short corridor at two guards in front of the vault. They use some pop-up gas-releasing grenade device to disable both. Yen plants the charges (the fake jewels) onto the vault door. Ocean plants detonators outside and blows the vault. Meanwhile, surveillance shows something different (absolutely nothing wrong happening) than what is actually occurring inside the vault.

Finally, when ready, Rusty calls Benedict directly on a cellphone, which Danny secretly dropped into Tess's pocket. Rusty says Benedict is being robbed. The video feed suddenly changes. Benedict calls for a SWAT team, which arrives promptly and storms the place. Ultimately the crew still succeed in stealing the money - by virtue of the SWAT team being none other than the team members in disguise. They make it out easily. After the robbery, Danny is arrested again (for a parole violation) and sent to prison. After "three to six months," Danny is released and met outside of the prison by Rusty, who has brought Tess in his car. They drive off, followed by a car with Benedict's guards.
