September 28, 2019
A generally unfunny and regressive remake.
September 24, 2019
The Hustle's attempt at satire suffers from the limitations of its imagination, and its failure to realise it needs to be harsher on the con artists than their victims if it doesn't want to make bolder changes to the script's architecture.

The Hustle is very low stakes and I only saw it because I was stuck in a mall in New Jersey for two hours and it was the next thing playing.

It's all exactly as unnecessary as it sounds.
July 3, 2019
This is a comedy without a soul, which also just happens to be a comedy without prompting any genuine laughs.
July 1, 2019
The various twists and turns of The Hustle only end up confusing the genre themes that the film aims to address. [Full review in Spanish]
July 1, 2019
An uneven comedy. [Full review in Spanish]
June 28, 2019
The worst thing is that director Chris Addison had all the elements to succeed. [Full review in Spanish]
June 26, 2019
A movie that lacks soul and has a sterile execution. [Full Review in Spanish]
June 18, 2019
Clichéd, bland and a slog.
June 12, 2019
Why waste an important female led vehicle as a relatively mediocre rehash of a twice remade comedy?
June 10, 2019
A remake of little spirit or purpose, save perhaps to con the cinema going audience of their hard-earned.
June 5, 2019
Hathaway and Wilson get really creative, but the story arc runs out of good ideas.
June 4, 2019
There are laughs to be had, but given the talent involved this new telling of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels doesn't update the material enough to make it stand well on its own.

Imagine it like being at a restaurant where the waiter explains the menu in endless, intensive detail and then when it is time to eat, you are pushed out the door, the first bite still being chewed.

However, the nonsensical antics that transpire throughout the movie feels lackluster and limp - ironically the biggest con that the tepid tandem of Hathaway/Wilson pulls off in this quirky, yet deceptive dud.
May 29, 2019
All the ingredients were there: Hathaway, Wilson, a women-centric retelling, the glitzy Riviera setting... Yet somehow they didn't quite come together.
May 26, 2019
A bad film but a great con, where you know you're being scammed every step of the way.
May 22, 2019
This is a slab of cold, unfunny comedy, just lying there, very very odd given the two talented performers at the center of it.
May 22, 2019
I just have no patience for this kind of humor.
