Two female scam artists, one low rent and the other high class, compete to swindle a naïve tech prodigy out of his fortune. A remake of the 1988 comedy "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels."
- The Hustle
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. _Final rating:★★ - Had some things that appeal to me, but a poor finished product._
Point by point remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and while I don't hold that movie in as high regards compared to others, this spit in its face with offering absolutely nothing new with the comedy falling flat at every turn and worse yet, where Michael Caine and Steve Martin were great together, Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson shared no chemistry. Since this movie did not deviate at all from Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, I found myself mostly bored and just waiting for it to end. Although I've seen worse, I was never angry or anything, just thinking what was the point?
