Josephine Chesterfield (Anne Hathaway) is a glamorous, seductive Brit with a penchant for defrauding gullible wealthy men. Into her well-ordered world bursts Penny Rust (Rebel Wilson), an Aussie who is as free-form and fun-loving as Josephine is calculated and cunning. Despite their differences, both are masters of the art of the fleece. Wilson’s talent for physicality and Hathaway’s wit are a combustible combination as the pair pull out all the stops to swindle a tech billionaire (Alex Sharp).
They're giving dirty rotten men a run for their money. Two female scam artists, one low rent and the other high class, compete to swindle a naïve tech prodigy out of his fortune. A remake of the 1988 comedy "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.". The Hustle Wiki
The hustle Not in the same ballpark as dirty rotten scoundrels. So unrealistic and simply not funny......find something else to watch.
Skip this one We love Rebel Wilson. This movie fell flat though. Anne Hathaway was a total dud. She's just not funny.
Disappointed Could be way funnier. I was disgusted by the dr's treatment. How annoying to watch. Don't understand why someone would find that funny.
HORRIBLE Why can't anyone do a good comedy?!?!?
It was clever!!! I wanted to give it more stars and it was good but just a bit slow. But can’t think of another movie with this plot line. It had its funny moments but didn’t make me laugh really just chuckle, the acting was great!
Meh I really wanted to like this movie, but no. Predictable and boring. I like Anne H., but that’s about it... wait until it rents for .99cents.... or Netflix
TERRIBLE!!! Rebel Wilson ruined Anne Hathaway’s movie. Anne is awesome. Rebel is terrible; not funny AT ALL. Don’t waste your money. Ouch. That first ten minutes was hard to watch.
Has its moments You have to set aside Anne Hatheway's truly awful fake accent but there are some funny moments in the movie. Rent don't buy. Worthy of a watch with some Skinny Girl wine.
Horrible Cheese and nonsense ... completely waste one my time
Stopped watching mid movie Script was just not funny. Not sure who they made this movie for.
Fat girl What a missed opportunity! Terribly unfunny schtick of the fat girl, clumsy, stupid, ugly, unrefined...etc. Skinny girl sophisticated, attractive, sexy, smart it’s been done way too much and it’s really tired. What a waste of time didn’t watch till the end it was to cringeworthy.
It could have been a good movie... ...but it wasn't. It was so over-acted as to be hard to watch, especially Anne Hathaway. If it hadn't been so over-the-top, both plot and actors could have made for a reasonably enjoyable film. So... the other reviews are a good indicator that this is a pretty cringe-worthy movie, even if you're just looking for light entertainment.
Haste makes waste Rebel Wilson and Anne Hathaway have such talent but this film wastes most of it. It would have been a great film if the screenwriters and director actually focussed on a great hustle, versus a repeat of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. The male lead fails to pack the punch that Glenne Headly bought to the latter in closing. Why do the same when you could do something different? Hollywood seems to be completely out of ideas, finding its inspiration from comics and remakes.
Tiresome 2 excellent actors but a tirespme storyline, it was over before the end.
Fun time Maybe because i was expecting something really bad, but i had a good time and good laughs. Its not movie of the year, and one thing really dont make sense, but just ignore it and its fine. Good chemistry between the two leads
Couldn't even finish it. I couldn't bring myself to watch it through to the end, the jokes were too unfunny and the premise too ridiculous.
The trailer tells it all, this is not Shakespeare, it is what it is, a light , comedy for relaxing the intellect. Chill out, eat bad food, and let the idiocy rollover you. It’s better than a poke in the eye with a burnt stick.
Probably one of the worst movies i have ever watched!!! So so bad
Apart from updated references and technology this is a vulgar remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels which itself was a remake but between the awful accent and Rebel Wilson this is a hard pass
A very poor remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.
I can’t tell if rebel Wilson is under or overacting. Maybe both at once? Either way it was terrible. Save the money
This film is based on mostly comedy (obviously) but Hathaway's character didn't complement Wilson's character and comedy at all times. Some scenes, primarily the montage, were quite well crafted, but others were lacklustre. Overall an average film, with great and not so great parts throughout. I recommend renting, not buying this film.
Hustle wasn't that bad, it needed a better female lead to accommodate Rebel 's natural comedy.
just a really bad movie.
