How do I say this is shocking and not sound sexist?

It's not shocking because it's an all female cast, it's shocking because it's a stupid idea

Went to this last night. I've never been super into the Ocean's movies. I saw Ocean's 11 and thought it was just ok. I don't think I saw any other ones. This one gave me the same "it was fine" reaction that Ocean's 11 did. Had some good funny parts and the "twists" were neat, if not expected. If you like the other movies in the series, you'll probably like this one.

I've only seen Ocean's Eleven in full, too. I really liked the original but turned off Ocean's 12 and never saw 13. I liked this new cast yet how they brought in a few characters from the original in and had a few parallels in the storyline to the original without being overkill.

Sounds like we need to see this. We watched all 3 of them of like 3 years ago and liked them, but I don't really remember any of them.

11 was casino
12 was art and Julia Roberts played Julia Roberts?
13 was Al Pacino and egg thing?

This gave me everything I wanted. Fun movie with some fun twists. The cast was great, Anna Hathaway especially. The story was fine. I had issues with how easily all of it worked out, but that can be said about any of the Ocean movies. Everyone is always too smart to ever be in any danger. My main issue though, is Sarah Paulson's character getting a job with the event planning firm. How did Sandra know there would be an opening and she would get it?

I really like seeing the con-artist tricks. Like the shoplifting from the stores and getting a free hotel room.

I was really bothered about them hiding the fake necklace in the fountain vs just leaving it on the bathroom floor, but all of that made since when they explained part 2 of the heist. Yen showing up was great. This was his 4th movie appearance ever, the other 3 being the other Ocean movies.
