“There is a moment in Ocean’s 8 when Anne Hathaway throws up. Just full-on vomits. Her character, movie star and Met Gala co-chair, is poised and unattainable, but it’s in the moment that she throws up that she becomes the standout character in a film of all-star actresses. The comedy up to that point is all one-liners and snark. But it’s Anne Hathaway’s full-body convulsions in a floor length gown that remind you that while Hathaway isn’t the first to throw up for comedic effect, she might be the funniest person to ever do it. It’s a small moment, but it counts.”

It’s about sodium-loaded pork fat, stinky triple-cream cheeses, the tender thymus glands and distended livers of young animals. It’s about danger – risking the dark, bacterial forces of beef, chicken, cheese, and shellfish.”
