It's incredibly slight and foolish. But its ends up committing to its ridiculousness in a way that I could not help but respect.

The Hustle doesn't have a grand message and it doesn't need one. It's two top-notch comedians trying to steal the movie from one another. They both win.

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

Fun for a movie night out with the girls. The costume design and lavishly decorated French locations are delicious while Anne Hathaway proves her comedic prowess yet again.

Finds a respectable supply of laughs... Light fun, generally amusing with pockets of hilarity.

Even if The Hustle fails to enter the pantheon of great comedy, it proves reasonably entertaining.
May 10, 2019
The Hustle plays a dirty, rotten trick on moviegoers charmed by the prospect of Anne Hathaway's withering wit paired with Rebel Wilson's physical comedy.
May 10, 2019
While I will not say it is not the best comedy of the year, the comedic prowess of Rebel Wilson and Anne Hathaway is top notch, and it is a film that both men and women will enjoy.

The Hustle may not be memorable long term and should be discussed within the scope of modern remakes, the film is elevated by its leads, the razzle dazzle of it all, and its surprising charm.

The gender-swapped Dirty Rotten Scoundrels remake The Hustle may be born out of a lazy idea, but its misandrist energy carries it along nicely.
May 10, 2019
In spite of its overeagerness to cater to Wilson's comic instincts, thanks to its spirited lead performances it is a pretty good time. No fooling.

An enjoyable, if unexceptional remake [with] sufficient laughs to make this carbon-copy worth the effort. [It's] the fourth recent example of a "feminised" remake [but] if there is some underlying motive for this trend it is yet to make itself apparent.

I don't expect anything to be as good as Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and it doesn't have to be. It only needs to be also good for me to be happy that there is another Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, and man oh man, is The Hustle also good.

Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson won't make you forget Michael Caine and Steve Martin, but they have a charming anti-chemistry that makes Chris Addison's remake bounce along.

This is no Bridesmaids, but at least it hustles hard to get there.

Fat jokes and cliches in so-so gender-flipped remake.

Comedy is in a weird place right now, and "The Hustle" deserves some credit for fulfilling its own modest, escapist ambitions.
May 9, 2019
Together, Hathaway and Wilson make a surprisingly good comic team... Together, they make "The Hustle" a remake that does its original (or originals) proud.

"The Hustle," fun as some of it is, is a tall fizzy drink in which the fizz never completely rises to the top of the glass.
May 9, 2019
Old fashioned, but this "Bedtime Story/Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" remake works about as well as it ever has, and Wilson and Hathaway throw themselves into it.
