Atom User Reviews for The Hustle
I have not laughed out loud this much in a theater in a long time. I really enjoyed this movie.
Didn’t laugh once. See ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels’ instead. Same movie but that one is funny.
It wasn’t funny. I had high hopes based on the trailer and was really disappointed. Chuckled a few times in the beginning but that was all. The movie has me questioning why it even needed to be made. Plot didn’t connect in some parts, certain topics (Medusa) probably should’ve been fleshed out more. Anne’s fake accent for every European “character” is the same- BAD!!! Whether she was French or German she sounded like she was England.
The movie needed more comedy! Good pairing but, the laughs were few and far between for an unbelievable movie. ⭐️
Don’t waist your Money nor time on this Movie
Rebel was amazing and being the butt of the joke consistently in this movie, Anne's character was a bit dry, some parts were funny others I wished the movie was over, some scenes just didn't make sense or were necessary. It was ok I think with a better character script and the segue of scenes could have had more detail and thought put into it. The ending was cute.
A lot of interesting ideas in such a watered down story.
Just pure comical genius!
Nice feminine touch to "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels," especially considering I have seen "DRS" seven times and knew the storyline by heart. There were surprising moments in "The Hustle" totally unrelated to "DRS" which made it even more interesting.
not worth buying a ticket
Very funny, with an actual good plot.
dirty rotten scoundrels remake
it was entertaining
Though the 55 year-old plot's bones are sturdy and its new performers gifted, moviegoers hoping for a mercilessly funny post-Weinstein revenge fantasy (its poster declares: They're giving dirty rotten men a run for their money) will walk away feeling conned.
The new film is ripe for big laughs with Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson as, respectively, the snobby British bombshell with sticky fingers and the rough-around-the-edges though equally cunning con artist, but neither actress is given rich enough material to bring the film’s most interesting ideas to the finish line.
A watchable, unnecessary re-do that works hard but lacks the charm to really zing.
