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”
