There's a sweet satisfaction in watching as Ocean pulls it off.

If the ambition is to provide two hours of instantly forgettable, popcorn-munching escapism, it succeeds. But that is a miserably low hurdle to ask such a starry cast to clear...

As heists go, it's a moderately ingenious idea, and for the most part, the movie floats along amiably on the tide of its stars' charisma and the capable if uninspired direction of Ross, who also co-wrote the script with Olivia Milch.

A poorly directed and written blow-out. This cast deserved better.

Anne Hathaway makes Daphne Kluger's laugh just one of many annoying things about her, which makes taking advantage of her fun in a movie that's not just a gender switch on heist flicks but a nifty takedown of celebrity culture and the fashion world.

You've heard of The Sons of Katie Elder. Here are The Entitled Nieces of Hudson Hawk.

Although this movie is fun, the subtraction of rivalry makes for a movie that is inevitably less riveting.
June 12, 2018
It is dutiful and workmanlike and too often alarmingly uninterested in the eponymous eight women around which it is built.

Ocean's 8, directed by Gary Ross, is hypercompetent and artless...Nothing in this movie is trying to be interesting, but everything in it gets the job done.

Like Ocean's Thirteen, the last and least successful Clooney-Pitt frolic 10 years ago, this one is comprised of pretty much the same plot and the same gimmicks, but the big difference is the perpetrators are easier on the eye.

Ocean's 8 should be great fun. Instead, it's a kind of noncommittal semi-fun.
June 8, 2018
Ocean's 8 isn't bad-it's simply not up to the talents of its cast.
June 8, 2018
Gender-swapped reboots can and should work, but not when they're as underwritten and slapdash as the disappointing "Ocean's 8."
June 8, 2018
It also turns out that [Gary Ross's] style, or lack of it, is the uneven Ocean's major liability.
June 8, 2018
It has some spark and dazzle, at least until the last half hour or so, when it fizzles.
June 8, 2018
The best than can be said is Eigil Bryld's cinematography is easier on the eyes than a dimmed screensaver.
June 8, 2018
Hathaway's screwball performance toys wickedly with star-system self-parody and keeps the movie chugging along. But it does little more than chug.
June 8, 2018
It succeeds not as a gimmick or a gender-flip of an already established concept, but on its own as a worthy successor to the franchise. As a lark, it's a pretty good one.

The charisma of the cast is tremendous, it's still a breezy and adventurous heist movie, and particularly in the performance from Hathaway, it's timely, in its way, just as its predecessor was.
June 7, 2018
These women are just great fun to hang with, and I'd happily sit still for a slew of sequels.
