The Hustle Reviews

May 13, 2019
It's the irony of all ironies that one walks away from "The Hustle" feeling a little, well, hustled.

Even with a running time of 93 minutes, The Hustle felt about an hour too long.

Who's conning who here? In "The Hustle," everyone's a sucker, most of all the audience.

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.

"You could've been more!" is something I wanted to stand up and scream during the closing credits of The Hustle... starring Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson. Instead, I packed up my popcorn, left the theatre and wondered how it all went wrong.

The Hustle will fail to seduce the most important mark in any heist movie: the audience.

Even with Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson as con artists, the setups are flat, the jokes don't land and the actors strain for laughs that never come. Be warned about this femcentric spin on Dirty Rotten Scoundrels-it's the audience that gets hustled.

When the end finally arrives, it brings no sense of completion, just a sort of numb awareness that the pain has stopped.

Whatever I said about "Ocean's Eight," I take it back; that was a paragon of wit compared to this movie.

"The Hustle" slavishly hews to the script of "Scoundrels," sometimes even the way scenes are shot. It's only adjusted for technology - mobile phones, computers, Venmo - and the actresses' personalities, aka boring and klutzy.
