Movie Preview: “Ocean’s Eight” Lady-Splains the Caper Comedy

First thing that made me laugh here was Anne Hathaway playing around with her hated image. Gwyneth Paltrow wasn’t available? Bullock’s deadpan is as solid as ever, as is her obsession/vanity over her hair.

Blanchett and Helena Bonham Carter and Mindy Kaling — funny on their own.

Using “These Boots Were Made for Walkin'” is, as the comics say, “a little on-the-nose.”

It’s opening in June and is earning all these hot takes that it arrives “just in time.” Could be a hoot, but the trailer doesn’t really do it for me.
