Amy Adams is spectacular, febrile, dramatic, comic, sharp, sarcastic and magnificent to look upon, especially her soaring laughter in an explosive comic-sexual scene set in a nightclub ladies' room stall.

To call the end result an absolute triumph would undercut more apropos labels; it seeks to be one of the best films of the year, and transcends that goal.

Pode até ser uma espécie de Os Bons Companheiros versão light, mas não deixa de ser incrivelmente divertido.

Like the Abscam con, the film is a convincing confection, so well played that we don't care if it's the real deal or not.

A fun, energetic caper that tries hard to make you love its characters, but mostly fails to succeed..

Spectrum (St. George, Utah)

Definitely an actor's film, with some great moments and terrific performances within an uneven story backed by a killer 70's soundtrack.

Wide characters, deep storytelling, bad hair and a great 1970s soundtrack fill this stylishly seductive comedy about small time con artists working their way up the food chain.

Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)

What could have been a trifling little caper movie becomes, in the hands of Russell and his superb cast, a rich, character-driven film of humor, drama and surprising warmth.

David O. Russell's American Hustle is slick, surprisingly funny, and actually makes the horrendous styles of the 1970s look kind of appealing.

Spearheaded by enormously charismatic actors and a script's verbal wit that overrides its untidiness.

Save your admiration for the performances, especially Lawrence, who is now Hollywood's most important presence in front of the camera.

It turns out that comb-overs, cleavage, cocaine and kookiness are an unbeatable combo.

Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)

'American Hustle' is smart, sophisticated and slick. Director David O. Russell has been nominated for the Academy Award for both last year's 'Silver Linings Playbook' and 'The Fighter,' and he's bound to earn at least a nod again this year.

The Ooh Tray

It's like a pastiche of a '70's Sidney Lumet picture: well made, well performed but lacking the bite and shrewd intelligence of the older movies it reminds you of. In this way it's a better movie about modern American filmmaking than the era it recreates.

Tampa Bay Times

To understand the breadth of disco-era deception laid out in American Hustle, understand that the most honest character in the movie is a politician. Not entirely honorable but compared with the swindle sharks circling, he's Jimmy Carter on Sundays.
