The film follows another branch of the Ocean family tree on another epic, impossible con. But the big question is: What about Anna Wintour?! Great cast, but so blandly acted. Bad directing, perhaps? Anyway, the trailers are better than the actual film. This is a self-satisfied exercise that's only occasionally as much fun as it thinks it is. Theaters More Theaters Nearby.
Reboots putting women into roles originated in movies centered on men prove that women can be as good as men in any role—but also that their movies can be as bad as any in which men star. But the substance and the style of the performers that emerge in alluring flashes is engulfed by a black hole of a dramatic framework, a central emptiness that is a built-in problem of the heist-film genre in the age of digital technology. It depends on the recruitment of a fashion designer on the downside named Rose Weil Helena Bonham Carter , who owes money, risks prison, and can be roped into the scheme. It also involves the unwitting participation of an actress named Daphne Kluger Anne Hathaway , a high-profile guest at the Met Gala, who will be maneuvered and manipulated into wearing the Toussaint to the event and will be the target of the robbery—and who, in the course of that robbery, displays a sangfroid to match that of the criminal band. Ross has a brisk camera style that delivers a few unexpected angles and maintains a pumped-up pace but never lets the actors breathe; their vivid performances are like jazz improvisations cut down to a bar at a time. The movie toys with stereotypes that it seems to mock but also silently depends on.
Amid heightened security at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, a merry girl gang of crooks, led by a well-matched Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett, must block off a 9-foot-square space where a woman can squeeze in and out of the lavatory undetected by surveillance cameras. With deft calculation, sharp timing and the faintest of eye-rolls, this insouciant charmer slips into its own private corner where the rules of that restroom apply: no boys allowed. It should go without saying that a splashy Hollywood caper picture featuring one or two or eight female leads should have as much appeal for men as for women. Maybe the previous one never ended. The sequence that follows, in which Debbie smoothly cons her way into a swanky Manhattan hotel room, is a delectable cinematic amuse-bouche, a tour de force of low-stakes duplicity. Duplicity runs in the family. Neither does the movie.

David Ehrlich. As the star system faded, the studios grew less inclined to shoot for the moon. Budgets grew, ambition shrank, and franchises that needed to perform on six continents just to break even began to inherit the Earth. Every blockbuster that transparently feels like product makes it that much harder for the film industry to sell us the next big thing. The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been caught in the middle of this conflict for most of the 21st century.
