Director Gary Ross (Seabiscuit, The Hunger Games), who wrote the story and collaborated with Olivia Milch on the screenplay, closely follows the Soderbergh formula of wry humor, nimble plotting, and wall-to-wall bass riffs.

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.

As might be expected of an Oceans film, things move smoothly; to its credit, there's very little fat here.
June 16, 2018
A poorly directed and written blow-out. This cast deserved better.
June 14, 2018
Time's up on all-male heist shenanigans in Ocean's Eight, which proves that Y chromosomes in a glitzy, star-led ensemble caper are thoroughly surplus to requirements.

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.
June 13, 2018
Director Gary Ross has made a movie just as slick and as superficial as the earlier installments of the Ocean's franchise in which the men oversaw the grand thefts. Whether this qualifies Ocean's 8 as groundbreaking or original is a moot point.
June 13, 2018
It's a big yawn.

You've heard of The Sons of Katie Elder. Here are The Entitled Nieces of Hudson Hawk.
June 13, 2018
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.
June 12, 2018
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.
June 11, 2018
Ocean's 8 is a pleasant two hours, mostly because of, well, that cast and those clothes.
June 9, 2018
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.
