Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - This comedy is a remake of the 1980s film Dirty Rotten Scoundrels but with the leads being women this time, namely Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson. Fans of the two stars should enjoy. Language and suggestive humor make the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average ...light and slight and utterly forgettable as soon as it's over. It's not terrible. It's not anything, really, except an excuse for Hathaway to swan about in a series of clingy dresses and fake accents and Wilson to pratfall and deadpan her way from one outlandish scheme to the next.

NY Post Full Review
Average "The Hustle” is just a loony con-job that comes up short on being convincing. Wilson does her usual schtick, filled with Aussie awkwardness, pratfalls and a total abandonment of shame. As always, she is very funny...

Slant Magazine Full Review
Poor ...a victim of a lifeless script that leaves its stars, Rebel Wilson and Anne Hathaway, with little to do but crank up their quirks to annoying degrees. Like other gender-swapped films in recent years, The Hustle plays the identity politics game as an end in itself.

The Guardian Full Review
Poor Anne Hathaway detonates a megaton blast of pure unfunniness in this terrifying film.At least jokes make sense coming out of Wilson's mouth; at least they sound and feel like jokes, even if the script is never much more than ropey. But Hathaway is rigid, inert...

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 53 moviegoers:
TEENS: The two males only rated it "good/average," but the females, mostly, loved "The Hustle." The only one that didn't love it, enjoyed it very much.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: The lone male felt it was only a "good/average" movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable). The four females all loved "The Hustle."
ADULTS: About half the guys enjoyed this movie very much with the remaining half rating it "good/average" (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable). As for the ladies, Eleven of the thirty loved it and eight more enjoyed it very much. The remaining eleven felt it was just an enjoyable movie but nothing special or memorable so they rated it "good/average."


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Josephine Chesterfield is a glamorous, seductive Brit with a sprawling home in Beaumont-sur-Mer and a penchant for defrauding gullible wealthy men from all corners of the world. Into her well-ordered, meticulously moneyed world bursts Penny Rust, an Aussie who is as free-form and fun-loving as Josephine is calculated and cunning. Where Penny amasses wads of cash by ripping off her marks in neighborhood bars, Josephine fills her safe with massive diamonds after ensnaring her prey in glitzy casinos. Despite their different methods, both are masters of the art of the fleece so they con the men that have wronged women. Wilson's talent for physicality and Hathaway's withering wit are a combustible combination as the pair of scammers pull out all the stops to swindle a naïve tech billionaire.
