CHICAGO – In “Ocean’s 8,” a diamond necklace at the Met Gala isn’t the only thing getting ripped off. This all female knock off provides a reasonable facsimile of a facsimile of the original’s suave swagger, but doesn’t have anything else to go on. “Oceans 11” is a movie that never should have gotten a sequel, much less become some kind of a franchise.

And while “Oceans 8” is admittedly a step up from the unwatchable rich guys travelogue “Oceans 12,” it’s ultimately just spinning its wheels in an exercise in pointlessness. Sandra Bullock stars as the heretofore unmentioned sister of George Clooney’s Danny Ocean. After serving five years in the clink for a petty art scam, she’s been dreaming up a foolproof plan for her one big comeback score. She wants to steal the world’s most valuable diamond necklace at the annual Metropolitan Museum of Art Gala in New York City.

“Oceans 8” opens everywhere in on June 8th. Featuring Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Helena Bonham Carter, Rihanna, Awkwafina, Sarah Paulson and James Corden. Written by Gary Ross and Olivia Milch. Directed by Gary Ross. Rated “PG-13”

  • Cher Show, The

    CHICAGO – Cherilyn Sarkisian… yes, that is her birth name… is the redoubtable Cher, and it’s perfect timing for her to have a jukebox musical tribute. “The Cher Show,” covering three eras/songs of the six-decade career of Cher, opens for a Chicago preview before its Broadway run, from June 12th through July 25th, 2018.

  • ThroatPunch

    CHICAGO – The provocative title of Sharon Krome’s new stage play, “ThroatPunch,” does not contain that particular fight technique. But it does have standout performances by the three person cast, as they make their way in Chicago, circa 1983, amid their emerging twentysomething punk rock attitude. The World Premiere of the show has a Thursday-Sunday run at the Chicago Mosaic School through June 3rd, 2018. Click here for more details, including ticket information.
