Sandra Bullock plays the mastermind behind an elaborate plot to snatch a diamond necklace right off the neck of its wearer at the Met Gala. She assembles a team that includes Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Rihanna, Mindy Kaling and Sara Paulson. While it’s an interesting group, there’s not a lot of amusing interactions or clever characterizations. This is more about the mechanizations of the heist than enjoying the personalities. The exception is Anne Hathaway, who seems to be relishing playing against type, as the self-absorbed movie-star who wears the jewels. There’s lots of glamour (several of the women look over made up), some beautiful locations and a few dozen cameos (many of whom I didn’t recognize). It’s adequately entertaining, but not as sharp or smart as the earlier versions.
