AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: The Hustle's stars might make an effective comedy team in a different setting, but this gender-flipped remake of a remake adds little beyond its feminine twist.

Movie Info

Rebel Wilson and Anne Hathaway have winning chemistry as a pair of con artists plying their trade in a stunning seaside town in the south of France. Josephine Chesterfield (Hathaway) is a glamorous, seductive Brit with a sprawling home in Beaumont-sur-Mer and a penchant for defrauding gullible wealthy men from all corners of the world. Into her well-ordered, meticulously moneyed world bursts Penny Rust (Wilson), an Aussie who is as free-form and fun-loving as Josephine is calculated and cunning. Where Penny amasses wads of cash by ripping off her marks in neighborhood bars, Josephine fills her safe with massive diamonds after ensnaring her prey in glitzy casinos. Despite their different methods, both are masters of the art of the fleece so they con the men that have wronged women. Wilson's talent for physicality and Hathaway's withering wit are a combustible combination as the pair of scammers pull out all the stops to swindle a naïve tech billionaire (Alex Sharp).

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

Wilson's energy level never falters. You would sympathise with such a natural, engaging talent for the narrow typecasting if she hadn't done it to herself. Rebel, Rebel, your film is a mess.

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

May 10, 2019 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

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

May 10, 2019 | Rating: C | Full Review…

Every barely competent line or gag from the original has been deleted or replaced with gobsmacking doggerel.

May 10, 2019 | Rating: 0/5 | Full Review…

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.
