Ocean's Eight ★★★

#Oceans8 was pleasant comfort food that delivered some safe matinee viewing. My hope is that it does well enough to warrant further adventures with this cast where they’ll give them a movie that takes a few more risks and gives these actresses something more personal to explore. There was no sense that anything was or could go wrong here. Every obstacle just fell into place without anyone breaking a sweat. The Ocean’s 11-13 films always had that moment where everything seemed to go sideways. That’s the thrill. This was just effervescent fluff.
