THE HUSTLE - Review
Release Date: May 10, 2019
Director: Chris Addison
Stars: Anne Hathaway, Rebel Wilson
Plot: Two con artists team up to scam men
Clint Says: Wait for the digital release
Oh, look. Another movie in which Rebel Wilson plays the exact same character she is in every movie she's in. I'm starting to think that she has zero ability to act and what we see on the screen is how she is in real life. Thank goodness Anne Hathaway is there to make this film somewhat tolerable and amusing.
For a film about con artists, the cons are overly simplistic and easy. There are a couple of good twists, but those do more to set up another movie than to do anything to help this one be better. It would have been nice if the women were as smart as the men are stupid.
It is a comedy, and there are a few laughs, but not enough to make this a movie you'll want to see more than once. And only a couple of times are the comedic moments worthy of a big laugh.
There are plenty of great con flicks and comedies to choose from. Save your money by skipping this movie and watch one of the really good ones on your TV or computer.
