    Carbon copy of an existing movie. Was bored and turned it off. Very disappointed as I like both leading actors.

    When we think of a female-led movie we either cheer up and encourage or get disappointed. A failed movie of this type becomes a source of disinformation in a way and our job is to raise awareness. A movie including such important and controversial theories like feminism must be produced very precisely because there are so many myths and misunderstandings around the idea itself that one little false representation of it will cause unnecessary criticism which will not contribute to the movement that is now so needed. That's exactly what the movie "The Hustle" did. It was supposed to be a great movie with the two amazing leading actresses who in real life fight against sexism in the right way with no hate, using their platform for the good. Therefore I expected quite a lot from this movie and of course because I am a feminist. However, to my great disappointment, the picture turned out to be full of incorrect and sort of aggressive moves. The concept behind the movie is beautiful, showing two women who are independent, fearless, successful all on their own, but how do they do it? One might say by using their brains, yes, but there is a whole other side to the story. In the movie we see women reaching their goals by lying and stealing from men. It is shown that every man can be tricked by a woman, especially a more "beautiful" one. We do know that there still is a lot of judgment regarding plus size women, but pointing that out in the way that it was in the movie(made fun of) is not helpful. I must say that at the end there was an unexpected turn of events as the young man was the one standing behind it all and he and Penny Ruste(blonde lady) end up together despite all the differences which is applaudable. In the end, there is one happy couple, a woman filled with hate over men and the trio together stealing from others and still putting differences between one another. Now, it is not something that you want to share and have no controversies, the movie itself is not that bad, but the actresses overacted in some parts and showed the opposite side of feminism.

    I wanted to love this movie sooooo much, but it fell short. Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is one of my favorite movies, because I'm old enough to have the "my family had this on VHS and we watched it over and over" nostalgia. But on top of that, DRS is witty, well-written, and tightly constructed. This movie is....... just a scene-for-scene remake with the three main characters gender-flipped. They could have done so much more with the concept, but no. If you know DRS, then you can predict every single scene of this movie. Nothing is different or interesting or unusual. Unfortunately, this movie just doesn't have anything to say. If you want a fun con-women popcorn flick, watch Ocean's 8. If you want a fun con-artist popcorn flick, check out Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.

    Sexual innuendo as comedy crosses over the line into desperate for a laugh at around about the mutual sharing of STD's and complete unfettered promiscuity, not to mention anal sex references. Like "Bad Santa" it gets cringing and sadly repugnant in some scenes. Rebel Wilson is hilarious enough without having to prostitute herself completely. The film is, however, mostly fun, has some very clever costume gags, great accents and is mostly unpredictable but then again I don't remember "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels".

    What could've been a brilliant female-centered comedy is reduced to a soulless rehash of stereotypical hustle movies. Wilson and Hathaway are great actresses individually but not so much together. Whether it's the role or the script, they didn't generate genuine laughs with their accents and silly performances. The Hustle may pass a couple of hours but it doesn't pass as a good movie.
