    Ms Wilson tried way too hard and ended up being annoying to watch.

    Underwhelming storyline. Basic humour that did nothing to hide the horrible acting and plot twists. Time I will never get back.

    This was a remake of "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" without any mention or credit being given to the original movie. Apparently it's okay to "borrow" other people's work and not credit them as long as they substitute females in the roles of the lead male actors. I didn't care much for the original version despite being a Steve Martin fan, and this remake was a real stinker. The plot was exactly the same as the original only with a few embellishments here and there. The actresses they selected didn't play off of each other very well, and the scenes felt forced and not believable. The humor was dry & crude throughout. In my opinion, this movie isn't even good enough to have on in the background while you surf social media. Take my advice and take a hard pass on this movie.

    Really quirky in a hit or miss sort of way. The lead actresses kept my interest, but nothing else about it held up well. Only bothered, since it was free on Xfinity.

    Overall, the only people who got conned in this movie is people who watch it thinking this could be something fresh and new. I personally love the idea of fresh talent to remake a classic comedy from the 80s but its end result is mostly painful and annoying even if you do get a couple of chuckles. Considering the talent, I personally hoped for something so much better but the end result was I felt robbed. 4.0/10 - Walkden Entertainment

    Painfully unfunny gender-flip of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels....cast seems good on paper but just fails and flails miserably

    In the pantheon of bad ideas remaking Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (which itself was a remake) ranks high, yet Rebel Wilson and Ann Hathaway attempt it in The Hustle. When a small time con woman gets taken by a pro she makes a deal to team up and learn her tricks, but they soon end up in a contest to see who's the better con artist. Half of the problem is Hathaway, who doesn't have any charm or likability. The other half is that the jokes just aren't that funny; relaying on a lot of sexual and gross out humor (which is Wilson's shtick). Still, the sight gags and pratfalls work pretty well and deliver some good laughs. Coming off as a bad imitation, The Hustle isn't fooling anyone.

    I gave this movie 4 out of 5 stars because I enjoyed it. Giving it any less would make me feel like I didn't enjoy it. It was a fun watch and I enjoyed the team of Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson. They make a funny team and you can tell they have chemistry. The movie was a fun watch and gives you plenty of twists and turns to keep you interested in the film. It had good comedy that made me laugh throughout the film and the character arcs were decent. I was invested in the two main character by the end of the movie. I felt good when they finally embraced in the end. I was, however, let down a bit when right after they embrace Thomas comes back and they form a trio and continue their con artist ways. I was hoping for feel good finish and I feel like the hug in the end would have been appropriate.
