“Just like Ocean’s Eleven, it’s like watching a two-hour highlight reel of an awesome Hollywood party that you weren’t invited to; only, in this case, this particular shindig was a 1970s-themed costume bash.”
“Finding myself taking the ‘it’s a great visual experience, the story is secondary to that’ stance this time around vaguely disturbs me.”
