Storyline

Following her release from prison, Debbie Ocean, younger sister of the late Danny Ocean, meets with her former partner-in-crime Lou to convince her to join a heist that she planned while serving her sentence. Debbie and Lou assemble the rest of their team: Rose Weil, a disgraced fashion designer who is deeply in debt with the IRS; Amita, a jewelry maker and friend of Debbie's who is eager to move out of her mother's house and start her own life; Nine Ball, a computer hacker; Constance, a street hustler and pickpocket; and Tammy, a profiteer and another friend of Debbie's who has been secretly selling stolen goods out of her family's suburban home. Debbie plans to steal the Toussaint, a $150 million Cartier necklace, from the Met Gala in three-and-a-half weeks, and use Met Gala co-host Daphne Kluger, a famous actress known for her long neck, as an unwitting mule who will wear the necklace into the gala.

Quotes

[first lines]
Parole Board Officer: [entering] Good afternoon, Miss Ocean.
Debbie Ocean: Hi.
Parole Board Officer: As you know, parole is a privilege. And one of the restrictions on any parolee, is to avoid the company of any person who has a criminal record of any kind. That would include most of your extended family.
Debbie Ocean: Yeah, that's obviously not something I'm proud of.
Parole Board Officer: Would this pose an impossible challenge for you?
Debbie Ocean: No. No. I don't want that life. I never wanted that life. My brother, um... May he rest in peace, was a criminal. I loved him, but he was a ...

It's ok.
13 June 2018 | by subxerogravitySee all my reviews

So as I was watching the film I did realize, I did not really like the remake of Ocean's 11. It was a good movie, but I saw it after all the hype, and it did not live up to the hype that surrounded it because of the many movie stars in it, movie stars I did not care enough about to care that they were in one movie

My hopes for Ocean's 8 was low to begin with and I did not want to dislike the movie, cause I knew everyone would assume that it's because Ocean's 8 is an all women cast.

To be honesty, that is half the problem. (Let me explain (please!), Like Ocean's eleven, the selling point of Ocean's eight was the idea that most of the ladies starring in it are the coolest kids in Hollywood. I Definitely would put Sandra Bullock in that company, and I love the fact that Ocean's 8 is a direct Spin-off to in the Ocean's franchise with Bullock as Danny Ocean's sister, Debbie Ocean, who's coming out of a five year stretch in the pin where she has come up with the greatest heist of all time. So she comes up with her crew which includes her best friend, Lou (Cate Blanchett, who's really cool) and six other ladies.

Like with Ocean's eleven at the time, none of the women in the film really made me want to jump up and go see them in a movie. I don't like Rihanna enough as a pop star to want to see her in this movie, in fact, Rihanna's run as an actress would tell you to stay clear of this movie. I want to like Mindy Kaling enough to run to the theater to see her, but I don't. I do like Anne Hathaway enough to want to see her in a flick as well as Helena Bonham Carter (but the movies I run to see her in are nothing like this). It's not the all star team I would want to see. No Michelle Rodriguez or Michelle Yeoh or Melissa McCarthy (I would be there with bells on if Melissa McCarthy was in it).

After seeing the movie the only one of the 8 that fully did it for me was Awkwafina as Constance, the street though Three card Monty player with the Sticky fingers. Out of the whole cast I had no prior knowledge of who she was (I still don't really know, I think she's a singer), but when she came up on the screen I loved her personality the most. She really entertained me.

The cast was suppose to get me into the seat, but the story was not cool enough to keep me wanting to be their. I came in not expecting much and I got what I was expecting. It's not the coolest heist movie I've seen (which is bad in a heist movie that's made to showcase each star and what their part in the heist is). The movie did start to pick up for me after the deed was done and they were trying not to get caught by the insurance investigator (Played by James Corden), but that wasn't enough.

I'm not cool enough to care about the coolness of the flick, but it did seem to be trying to hard to be hip. The chemistry between Bullock and Blanchett was good enough to hold the movie. It's too bad they needed six other people to pull of the heist.
