Debbie Ocean, a criminal mastermind, gathers a crew of female thieves to pull off the heist of the century at New York's annual Met Gala.
Just what I expected
Captivating movie !
I like movies that are aware of what they are selling... without [any] greater aspirations than to make people laugh and that's it.
But come on hollywood, really come on. Every film remade with women only or done now has all female cast and if there is a male he is stupid and extra.
Come on give it up. I have nothing against lesbians but hollywood pushing all women to become lesbians is just stupid and cliche by now.
For me,I like 11 or 13 best and think 12 is the worst one. This movie has an exciting story and a reversal. But the story goes too well. They should've screwed up at least once.
This movie does a great job on its own. It's not derivative, even though it pays homage to the original Ocean's trilogy, from the opening scene. But we realize right away that even though Debbie is as big a con as brother Danny, she's her own person.
While there are similarities to the other movies, most are common to the genre at large.
I loved the ambiguity about Danny's fate. I love the Debbie's and Daphne's character development- the latter being a bit of a surprise. I love the twists, and the drop-ins by unexpected characters.
Just as Charlie Croker would have made John bridger proud with The Italian Job, Debbie would have made Danny proud with this job. Even if she didn't keep it simple.
It's chock full of humor, including homage to the actresses and their past work. One reference to The Princess Diaries made my wife LOL, and we're still discussing whether the word was "eagle" as in the original, or "ego" which is even funnier. Speaking of which, Anne Hathaway is really funny as an egotistical bad actress.
One of the most boring movies i ever watched recently, truely a shameful reboot!
