There’s a good to fair chance that I have an addiction to going to the movies.
At any rate, I checked out The Hustle on this lovely Memorial Day.
This movie revolves around two con artists who ploy men into their traps. Eventually, they go head to head and have a contest between the two to determine dominance — a poor, naive tech entrepreneur.
Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson do a wonderful job in their acting. Aside from that, the movie is seriously disappointing.
It’s not bad for the first little bit and it really is funny. I won’t discount the movie for that. The larger issue at hand is that the ending butchers the movie as a whole. The writers decide to go for a twist and the dialogue and acting, as well as lack of exposition, just can’t cover what they tried to go for.
If you go into the movie for a relaxed and funny time, you’ll be pleased.
If you’re expecting something along the lines of Wine Country, you will be sorely disappointed.
