球員兼裁判，是一件絕對會被噓到爆的事情。但是如果這位球員跟這位裁判，換成史上最帥熟男George Clooney，我想大家一定會立刻把噓聲吞到肚子裡去吧！沒錯沒錯！咱們George Clooney自編自導自演的這片新作品，拉了好友Matt Damon還有一票Hollywood巨星，像熱騰騰奧斯卡影后Cate Blanchett一起來參與，完全就是未演先騷動！
But I'm kind of comfortable with getting older because it's better than the other option, which is being dead. So I'll take getting older.
It's incredibly unfair. You don't see a lot of 60-year-old women with 20-year-old men onscreen.
Based on the true story of the greatest treasure hunt in history, The Monuments Men is an action drama focusing on an unlikely World War II platoon, tasked by FDR with going into Germany to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and returning them to their rightful owners. It would be an impossible mission: with the art trapped behind enemy lines, and with the German army under orders to destroy everything as the Reich fell, how could these guys - seven museum directors, curators, and art historians, all more familiar with Michelangelo than the M-1 - possibly hope to succeed? But as the Monuments Men, as they were called, found themselves in a race against time to avoid the destruction of 1000 years of culture, they would risk their lives to protect and defend mankind's greatest achievements.
