Premise: Debbie Ocean (sister to Danny Ocean, played by George Clooney) has a master plan to rob the Met Gala in New York City. But she’ll need to assemble a crew of professionals to pull off the job.
We missed seeing this one up on the big screen when it was released earlier this summer. It came out in early June and, by the time we started our holidays in July, it had been replaced at the cinema by the latest blockbuster of the week.
Not that we were too bothered given the feedback from friends, and reading the reviews (which seem to be mixed) in which, quote:
“Ocean’s 8 is the safest heist movie … ever!”
I think we’re happy to wait for the DVD to come around, and just enjoy this one for what it is: a female-centred buddy movie with an ensemble cast of top actresses having some fun.
And you, have you seen this one?
