The Hustle Reviews

May 8, 2019
Could swindle a few dollars out of its unsuspecting viewers but its attempt to win big comes up a bust as we've ultimately seen all these tricks before.
May 9, 2019
The plot is messy, random, and unfocused. The comedy is hit or miss; lacking big laugh-out-loud moments.

The Hustle could and should have been a platform for these two talented actresses and an acclaimed Director to make some pointed social commentary with wit, charm and laughs. Instead we get a movie beneath them and a good argument to not do remakes.

The Hustle switches tack, but it doesn't update antiquated ideas, and misses the mark because of it.

(Anne) Hathaway and (Rebel) Wilson deserve better. We deserve better.

THE HUSTLE may be one of the quietest audience-going experiences that has graced the genre in quite some time. This is a film with no identity, no grace and walks around aimlessly for 90 minutes.

The Hustle never rises to the level of the films that came before it. Essentially, it's OK - and certainly better than advertised - but nothing more.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

Proves to be the worst kind of remake. Sure it's fun to revisit an underrated comedy, but really what is the point? Sadly, this film has no answer to that question.
May 8, 2019
Despite great chemistry between Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson, 'The Hustle' proves to be a relatively disappointing and pointless affair.

Director Chris Addison's film is a rip-off: a beat-for-beat, scene-for-scene copy of a comedy classic, except in the case of The Hustle, everything is about 75 percent worse.
May 13, 2019
The Hustle, in the end, is a con on anyone who thought they were about to watch a modestly subversive feminist critique of capitalism.
May 10, 2019
The Hustle is a terribly unfunny film that you shouldn't get conned into seeing.

If you've seen the original film, there's no reason to watch this new one; aside from a few modern updates, it's the exact same movie.

These Rebel Wilson vehicles are progressively getting better. It's a shame we peaked in February.

In their effort to prove that women could be devious, they overlooked the point of the previous films. THE HUSTLE is proof that there is more to gender-swapping a story than switching the leads from male to female.

May 11, 2019
The film doesn't deliver on its initial promise. What we have here is a failure to ingratiate.
May 10, 2019
The repetitiveness of the story is what weighs the film down, not allowing Wilson or Hathaway out of the box to shine. You're never trying to guess what's going to happen next.

Pity that Wilson and Hathaway are so aggressively wasted.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

The Hustle looks to con you out of your movie-going dollars...don't fall for it.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
May 9, 2019
The Hustle is a muddled and regressive comedy that is not for want of laughs.
