It's the last week before Christmas and the present comes early! I've been excited for this all-female Oceans flick for some time. Normally I'd say we don't need another reboot/sequel/spinoff what-have-you… but y'know what, this year (well, any year really), an extra dose of girl power is extra awesome. 2017 is the year of Wonder …
