    Let's begin with the story, which is not good in any way. This movie relies so heavily on the comedy aspect of the film that it's like they forgot about the story itself. It doesn't help that about ¾ of the jokes told never stick the landing or seem so random that it just doesn't fit with what's going on in that moment of the film. The pacing in this movie is also terrible with it taking a weird approach to set up the movie and how the two women meet. I found the train car scene very weird and it made Rebel Wilson's character seem like such a klutz which I think contradicts her later actions. Anne Hataway and Rebel Wilson do a somewhat decent job in the film, but at times it feels like they are trying too hard to make the jokes seem funny. For instance, Anne Hathaway's accent ends up sounding like Emily Blunt (which isn't a bad thing, just a weird choice for her character) and Rebel Wilson is using some of her old gags from other movies that most of her line delivery just feels unoriginal. The supporting cast also does a decent job, but nobody really ever stands out. Especially Alex Sharp's character who I found to be very annoying by the end of the film. Speaking of the ending of the film, it was probably one of the worst endings to a film I have ever seen. There is absolutely no pay-off and makes you feel like you just wasted your time. The surprise twist at the end that Thomas is a con artist too is not surprising and seems like it was a basic choice just to try and pull you back in after an uneventful 2nd act. Then for the lead characters to do absolutely nothing to stop Thomas from taking their money is such a bad move on the story team's part. I would have loved to have seen Hathaway and Wilson pull off a scheme together since their "bonding" moment at the end of the film didn't feel deserved. All in all, The Hustle is a boring, unimaginative film that takes two A-list actors and does nothing new with them. The story takes a turn for the worst in the final act and has completely no fun to it at all. Even with the slight jokes that landed, it couldn't have saved The Hustle from being a total disaster.

    una peli de mujeres, "delincuentes" que se no te llegan a convencer del todo, no hay mucho que decir, un poco de comedia con un poco de accion y es todo lo que da la pelicula, no hay momentos épicos de ningún actor, recomendable para ver en tv.

    Well, the actors were OK. They almost save this thing with their personalities. But this was a movie that I watched to the end because I wanted to see the cars towed away after the wreck. I had to keep reminding myself this movie was a comedy, because it delivered very few laughs. Almost none of the laughs came from the writing, but from the performances of the actors as they extracted as much humour as they could from the poor material they were given. Where are the gags? There are none. It was as if the producers of this thing just gave up on having a script, pointed a camera at the girls and said "OK, now be funny". And they tried. Sometimes they succeeded, just by making silly faces. That's the extend of success found in this film though. What the hell is this script? I feel bad for everyone who signed on to do this thing. The ending.... I can't believe that an already bad movie had such a bad ending that it actually made it WORSE. 1 star, because the cast saved it from being a 0.

    It's funny and engages you through it story. But not memorable. Is it a late night movie to watch while eating popcorn? hell yeah.

    I like too much more than I expected to. It was fun to watch.

    An unnecessary remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. Feels very forced and not funny at all. The last act is near carbon copy of original. Ann Hathaway and Rebel Wilson try their hardest to propel the material but these two deserve so much better

    there's 2 scenes I found funny, the rest is kind of slapstick and bad accents mashed together, in a strangely constructed plot

    I think Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson are good enough in their roles, but the writing just doesn't hold up to their potential. The characters get put into some pretty dumb situations which feel like a disservice to the con artists they set both characters up to be. I think it's okay as a rental if you like the actors, but otherwise, it will be forgettable.

    Gender-swapped version of "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" is not necessarily bad, but it offers nothing new and falls way short of the Caine/Martin version.

    Why? And... No. Anne Hathaway was very good in this. Even though this film was terrible remake of "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" in every way, I really gained respect for Anne's acting abilities, which is what a horrible film should always do--make you realize who the real talent is. So, Anne gets to be a Diva if she wants, she has more than proven she has Diva-sized talent. I don't want to be mean, but I don't understand Rebel Wilson as a comedic performer in any way. She has no timing, no finesse, and looked like a fish out of water next to the pro that is Anne. To hand her a role to interpret that Steve Martin defined is just (smh)...Who cast that? That's not really Rebel's fault in the end, but a stupid casting decision which went on a hot name and not a hot talent (Apologies, Rebel. I'm sure you're a fine dramatic actress.).
