The Hustle movie review

Carlos Rubalcaba, Staff Writer

The Hustle was supposed to be a comedy, only made the people in the theaters laugh twice awkwardly.

Josephine chesterfield (Anne Hathaway) is a glamorous, seductive British woman who has a penchant for defrauding gullible men out of their money. Into her well-ordered, meticulous world comes Penny Rust (Rebel Wilson), a cunning and fun-loving Australian woman  who lives to swindle unsuspecting marks. Despite their different methods, the two grafters soon join forces for the ultimate score — a young and naive tech billionaire in the South of France.

The only part of The Hustle I liked was the previews before the movie; A lot of the jokes went over my head and other people in the theater too.

According to the Datebook, “It has two lead actresses flailing in the general direction of comedy for 90 whole minutes. But there are no laughs.” said Mick LaSalle.

The Hollywood Reporter says “Alas, those looking for a sharply feminist reinvention of this tale will have to wait another couple of decades.”

Their were a lot of bad moments of the movie, a lot of the jokes were not witty, they were very obvious.

The movie is obviously targeting girls night out audience but it’s not for everyone, certainly not a family movie.

Overall the movie was OK, it is nothing special just another remake movie that should have been left alone. The movie is rated PG-13 and I recommend the movie if it’s a girls’ night, but to watch alone, I would recommend any other movie.

I give this movie two out of five dollars.
