Ocean's Eight

Ocean's Eight ★★★

I started writing that this has major, near-critical flaws in every element apart from the casting, but then I remembered James Corden, so I guess it IS every element. It's the majority of the cast that keep it entertaining though, even if the writers still manage to contribute a good few scenes that go absolutely nowhere and some plot contrivances that made me roll my eyes a bit even though I watched this with a brutal hangover - my most non-critical state!

In the end though, it is just about fun enough to shrug away most of the flaws - it's just a shame that's necessary in the first place. This cast deserves better.
