How did the team behind this movie conspire to take a stellar cast, great sets and locations, a decent plot idea and make a such a stinker of a movie? The main issues are a) the script, which is lacking in any of charm and wit that have been the mainstay of the Ocean's franchise and b) the complete lack of chemistry between the characters - especially between Bullock and Blanchett who are obviously trying to re-create the Danny/Rusty vibe that Clooney & Pitt did so well. There was more chemistry between the actors on the couch of the Graham Norton Show than at any point in this movie! The end result is a very tiresome, plodding bore-fest. Hopefully the cast members spare their dignity and will not agree to sign up to an Ocean's 9.
