A smart and entertaining caper doused in sisterhood and featuring a sizzling career-best performance by Jennifer Lopez, "Hustlers" is surprisingly good, even if it falls short of great.

Like Scorsese, Scafaria employs a number of skillful directorial touches, including beginning her film with a single-take look at Destiny entering a strip club as if she were a commodity on display - which, in effect, she is.

Forget what you think it's about, because Hustlers will surprise you

The treatment of the story here is funny, rooted in comedy...thankfully, Jennifer Lopez is on screen for most of the film!

The second half picks up the pace somewhat, leading to a resolution that tries to be about the enduring strength of female friendships but just feels artificial.

It is a nuanced, generous depiction of sidelined workplaces and the lives of the women who work in them.

In spite of paying extra attention to a decade-old soundtrack punctuated with some solid performances, Hustlers never manages to rise above its truly feminist core to become an instant class act.

A flashy Robin Hood-ish drama of female empowerment, Hustlers is recommended viewing.
September 30, 2019
A surprisingly funny and frenetic and furious buddy movie that is deceptively profound...both as a girl-gang drama and a con-artist indie.
September 30, 2019
Despite the best efforts of Lopez, there's a lot of glamour but not enough depth required to make this a memorable film. Still, it may just be enough for a night out.

Hustlers can be described as a heist movie with a heart. You find an emotional connect with Ramona and her merry girls as their problems seem real.

(Lopez) dominates the screen from start to finish and yet always feels elusively just out of reach, helping audiences to share Dorothy's idolization of Ramona almost to mythicizing her.

Hustlers is at heart a standard underdog story, only with a strip club as its setting rather than a baseball diamond or a boxing ring. And Jennifer Lopez delivers her best performance since Bill Clinton was in office.

Where the [article] screams "revenge" on scumbag men, the film takes aim at a system these women conquered as a means for survival. This makes a huge difference.
September 27, 2019
Hustlers is nestled in the higher echelon of Scorsese-esque 'I can't believe this actually happened' stories somewhere between I, Tonya, American Made and American Hustle.
September 27, 2019
The women of Hustlers are forces of nature...Hustlers turns the genre on its head by inverting gender roles-turning entitled customers into helpless bait; predators and power-brokers into vulnerable victims.
September 27, 2019
"Hustlers" otherwise forges ahead with unbridled confidence and a big heart. It's sassy, brash and sneakily tender. Don't let it get away.
September 27, 2019
As good as Lopez and her onscreen accomplice Constance Wu are, they can't act what isn't in the script; other than a dedicated work ethic, we're never given access to their thoughts.
September 27, 2019
Hustlers is a tremendously entertaining film, but it is also deceptively deep, with singles of wisdom slipped under its glittery g-strings.
September 26, 2019
[Hustlers] creates fully realized female characters in a fascinating story that never shies away from the deeper implications of its narrative all of which combines to make it one of the most unique and enjoyable films I expect to see in 2019.
