‘Ocean’s 8’ delivers the goods

A reboot of a remake is about as meta a commentary of Hollywood’s current state of originality as one is likely to find. Still, “Ocean’s 8” brings a refreshingly unpretentious quality to this all-female, numerically scaled-down heist tale, yielding a movie that’s pleasant, mildly fun and the gender switch notwithstanding, a bit of an old-fashioned throwback.
