The Hustle

Critics Consensus

The Hustle's stars might make an effective comedy team in a different setting, but this gender-flipped remake of a remake adds little beyond its feminine twist.

Movie Info

Rebel Wilson and Anne Hathaway have winning chemistry as a pair of con artists plying their trade in a stunning seaside town in the south of France. Josephine Chesterfield (Hathaway) 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 (Wilson), 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 (Alex Sharp).

Audience Reviews for The Hustle

  • Feb 14, 2020
    In the pantheon of bad ideas remaking Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (which itself was a remake) ranks high, yet Rebel Wilson and Ann Hathaway attempt it in The Hustle. When a small time con woman gets taken by a pro she makes a deal to team up and learn her tricks, but they soon end up in a contest to see who's the better con artist. Half of the problem is Hathaway, who doesn't have any charm or likability. The other half is that the jokes just aren't that funny; relaying on a lot of sexual and gross out humor (which is Wilson's shtick). Still, the sight gags and pratfalls work pretty well and deliver some good laughs. Coming off as a bad imitation, The Hustle isn't fooling anyone.

    Normally, I really like Anne Hathaway. Especially recently. But not only did I think The Hustle was pretty bad, even she specifically was pretty bad in it.

    Flipping to female con artists, this remake is almost scene to scene like the Martin/Caine pairing. Wilson and Hathaway are good together and it has laughs but breaks no new ground and is pale in comparison. Not a bad rental! 08-22-2019

    The comic thrust of this remake of a remake (see: "Bedtime Story" and/or "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels") involves our main characters ability to impersonate accents different from their own. Neither Hathaway or Wilson is too proficient in this regard in this story about two hustlers competing with one another in the French Riviera. Here is a low-aiming, light-hearted comedy that will not put you out much, but is doubtful you'll think about much either.
