Waste of time .

Entertaining and different than what's been going on in the past few years .

Pointless .

Boring directing, dumb characters, zero drama, mediocre acting, meaningless ending.

A Really Tedious Snoozefest, This Was No Thriller.

The scenes also were repetitive.

Entertaining .

This film reminds me of 1998's The Players Club, another stripper film that was equally trite, uneven and the complete antithesis of "I am woman hear me roar".

Worst movie ever .

No plot peak, no sense of when the main events start or finish.

I'd rather be forced to watch paint dry .

Charming, innovative, entertaining .

Was a bit too long but I enjoyed it in the end.

Ultimately completely empty .

but don't waste your money/time.

Entertaining to a point, as others have said, the film didn't go anywhere and the plot/writing was thin.

Hustlers may feel like a predictable revenge narrative arc early on, where the women have success and get greedy and go too far, have lots of success and have it come crashing down.

Worst movie ever.

COMPLETE Waste of time .

Slow and not much story .

The plot is thin and contrived.

Thought provoking, compelling acting .

Overall though, I thought it was highly entertaining.

Lo sports is stunning!

Waste of time, maybe use it as background noise to sleep.

Empty Eye Candy .

I was delightfully surprised how enjoyable this movie was and it provided a great insight into the shady shenanigans that people get up to when opportunity and moral ambiguity collide.

Unfortunately, the film often feels disjointed and uncertain of what it wants to be.

Its a fun yet serious film and very enjoyable.

Wanted to leave the theater the entire time , horrible movie from beginning to end .

Entertaining Movie .


The pacing was too slow for the story, and the 110 min run-time felt like 3 hours.


Also there were some lull parts in the movie that almost had me nodding off.

Slow development.

It dragged on and was boring.

There's an unexpected conflict between the main character (Constance Wu) and her mentor (Jennifer Lopez) that develops from out of nothing and isn't really elaborated on screen.

The film is too long by about half an hour, and I left the cinema without feeling that I had been entertained.

Overall this movie is hilarious, dark, thrilling, well thought out and makes you overall feel good seeing these people come together to help each other in their hard time of need, where you find yourself rooting for these vulnerable strippers that are doing the illegal activities that they are in as you just want them out of this compromising position, then to be happy overall as close friends practically family too.

The second act seemingly explaining the methods of their game through repetitive scenes of targeted customers being drugged, having their credit cards swiped and returning them home.

It was boring and overhype.

Hustlers is a "uniquely empowering heist drama with depth and intelligence to match its striking visual appeal, and engaging nature".

So now, all they had to do was carve a compelling drama.

A waste of time and money.

It's my fault that I expected a fun, entertaining movie and didn't heed the user reviews that contradicted the critics' reviews.

Uninteresting characters caught up in uninteresting events.

Boring, slow and very disappointing to see Jennifer Lopez, a strong, powerful woman in real life, take on this role.

Sure its a bit slow.

4 the passing is slow an needed to pick up as for the 1st half of the film it just felt like it was dragging.

Predictable and unbelievable.

JLO is very good in this role and the first third of the film is actually pretty entertaining, but then it begins to get repetitive and quite honestly boring.

The plot was bland.

Besides all these factors, the way they unravel the story is very thrilling and enticing.

Same steals different victims, it got boring and redundant fast.

Eye opening but dull .

It was filled with boring and one dimensional characters with a mediocre plot line.

Sunday afternoon matinee was pretty packed and the audience enjoyed it.

This movie is literally unwatchable.

Long and boring snooze fest .

Trailer more exciting than the Full Movie .

There are fascinating linkages consistently shown throughout the movie, particularly surrounding the flow of money.

"Hustlers" is one of the sleekest and entertaining movies to come out this year.

A Energetic And Fascinating Story Led By Jennifer Lopez's Strong Performance .

I felt like I was taking an intro class in feminist/capitalist critique while being marveled by excellent acting, a fun soundtrack, beautiful lighting, in-depth character development, and a bunch of enjoyable 'slow-mo walking shots'/transitions with trippy elements.

It's truly entertaining and has solid performances.

The protagonist are unlikeable the pacing is off.

It was interesting the first few times but it got very repetitive since those scenes all followed the same setup, like same shots and setting and everything.


Atleast we can agree that Lopez is stunning!

Very poor, disjointed.

Entertaining .

Overall, it was far too long and repetitive.

Don't waste your time and money

The film itself is only okay- it's certainly an interesting story that could have been better, but it just seems disjointed.

Though there were a few funny moments in the film, Hustlers was shot like one long boring continuous scene.


Unfortunately, the setup takes far too long and the movie treats its supporting cast like Christmas ornaments.

A suitable outlet for Hustlers might be a low budget cable channel where housewives are bored with their knitting.

There were a lot of repetitive scenes in the "Hustling" itself, and the story is really by the numbers simple and mostly predictable.

save your money.

The cliche of choosing a Slumdog profession to provide for mommy and kiddies is so redundant that I would place a dangerous bet, nearly 85% of Western women spit the same line during thier early 30s as the moment when some poor guy settled to take them home from the bar at Applebee's leaned more toward last call and the dishwasher than someone your mother would be jealous of.

JLo is finally stunning .

The characters were extremely boring, and had I could not find likable traits in any of them.

1hr 50mins of repetitive garbage.

Too boring for that.

Tacky and Boring .

The story was entertaining despite its slow start.

Their collective moxie is thrilling, and stoked by Ramona's prowess allows them to run circles around their clientele, a rare, somewhat rewarding sight to behold until the moral scale is upended and the group's dynamic rapidly unravels.

Worst movies of all time....

Don't waste your time or money .

I watched last night, was absolutely stunning The Casting was great!

The public relations push weeks before the movie premiered was more entertaining than the movie itself.

I gave it a 2nd star because JLo did look outstanding, so credit to her there, but anyone trying to say she should get an Oscar nomination for this movie is either someone contractually obligated to be pushing this propaganda or someone who has a vested interest in JLo's career.

The movie was slow, dragging with no character development.

The movie was not what I expected, boring, and too long!

Saw an early screening and it was an amazing and entertaining movie.

The previews made it look more fun-filled & exciting .

Boring .

Despite the familiar narrative, Hustlers is an incredible true story crime drama that's stylish, gripping and funny.

Waste of time, as usual.

Hard pass - save your money.

The rest, it's pure garbage, I was falling asleep most of the movie, and also the story of the movie doesn't resonate with the audience.

This is truly by far the worst movie of the year.

Otherwise, don't waste your time.

Good enjoyable movie .

Worst movie I've seen this year.

After a long time I was swept off my feet by a story this engaging.

Justifying that they're doing what they're doing, because others have more than they do and they need to support their family etc.Personally, I got bored halfway through the movie and couldn't wait for the movie to end.

Because this part is so unbearable and awful, the movie only focuses on this rung of the wealth ladder for approximately four minutes.

Worst Movie of the Year!!.

LIKES:Decent Pace Good Dance Numbers Funny Decent good Morals/Story Liked the Medium Told Fashion Acting J-Lo DISLIKES:Predictable Story A Bit Over The Place The Bloated Excess of Drug and Con Scenes Secondary Cast A Little Too Secondary Some Lazy Writing Moments Last Part Of The Ending Was Rushed Glorification of Other MoralsThe VERDICT: Truth be told, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this movie.

Best,most entertaining greatest casting of 2019 .

Got up left after 45 minutes.

And I found it fascinating to observe a lifestyle by these men and women which is so foreign to my own experiences.

Jennifer Lopez's performance was so fascinating that had me in awe , hope she gets nominated for all the awards she deserves!

Poor acting, poor editing, drawn-out and paper thin storyline, the movie, if we can call it a movie, is more like a feeble, dramatised whine-song from Mumsnet.

The girls were forced to get creative so they began engaging in some risky behavior with their wall street clientele.

Overall, the plot FEELS like it should be entertaining, but the movie is a bit redundant - once you get into the thick of it, you're basically watching a repetitive cycle with not much movement to it.


Not a must watch, but for sure an entertaining story.

save your money guys.

Hustlers gives a compelling look at a group of female strippers and the ripple effect of the economy for them to support themselves.

It was an enjoyable night out at the cinema, but unsure if they crafted a totally compelling movie from that New York Magazine article...

PROS:Jennifer Lopez Ans Constance Wu's Fantastic PerformanceLorene Scafaria Stylish And Energetic DirectingSolid Supporting CastThe Visuals And CinematographyThe Fascinating StoryThe HumorA Good MessageCONS:The First Half May Be Little SlowSome Motivations Could Be A Little More Clear

I felt bored in the last third of the film and I didn't care much about what happens to these girls.

The storyline and most of the dialogue are so boring, it's as if they just filmed a boring conversation through most of it, very lazy.

Worst movie J LO ever made- period.

Dragged story line bored!!.

Their actions of manipulations became more interesting as it was unexpected on the characters' part.

It was boring, and seriously, not even entertaining to watch at all.

Save your money and see something else.

Worst movie I seen in a long time.

Such a funny, entertaining and inspiring film.

I enjoyed this, Lopez and wu put in solid performances and make you care about the characters and there lives, there are some genuinely laugh out loud moments and it was an enjoyable couple of hours spent

Worst movie I've ever seen, jesus.....

Bland and boring DESPITE J-Lo's good performance .

Consider this a tip from a friend - DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME!

Another criticism for this film is that it's too slow.

The last hour or so is frankly unwatchable.

The soundtrack wonderfully complements the compelling story and all the other good things about the movie.

My hubby enjoyed JLo, but aside from that this was a waste of time.

That self-made magnetism that has been finessed over years of performing still has the ability to seemingly slow down time, and writer-director Lorene Scafaria appreciates this more than anyone, rewarding such enigmatic energy with the role of a lifetime.

The remaining acts are just repetitive.

Tired boring tropes we've seen in every "all female cast" film since the 70's.

A fun and entertaining movie with a peculiar story to tell.

The perfect music choice, the choreography of the dancers, and the blocking of the movement make it the most exciting and memorable scene in the film.

What makes crime stories fascinating is that we're always going to see a different philosophy on just who the real villain is.

This movie was hands down entertaining and fun to watch.

I feel as though I'm in an alternate Universe, reading some of these positive reviews 😳 To begin with, this film is BORING!!!!

I just thought her acting was bland.

The music fitted with each scene and just made the film more entertaining in places.

Waste of time .

Very entertaining.

However is ultimately pointless.

The con that's set up is a good one, but the pacing causes things to slow down too much.

This film has no message.

Hustling Up A Dynamic Of Dance Of Entertaining Flashiness and Deeper Means .

Jennifer Lopez makes up for repetitive pacing in Hustlers, a cross between Showgirls, Boogie Nights and The Sting .

It's a waste of time and money.

Somewhere between awful and boring.

'Hustlers' is not as groundbreaking as festival critics set it out to be, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Kids don't waste y'all time watching this at all

Terrible, boring, not as advertised.

This movie is utter crap and a waste of time.

Tortuously boring and pointless movie.

That being said, Hustlers is DEFINITELY worth the watch.

Absolute garbage and a waste of time.

This is by far the worst movie I have seen in over 30 years.


Highly entertaining with great roles for JLo and Constance Wu.

Yawn again.

Very Entertaining.

It's nowhere near the worst movie I've ever seen, but this felt like a waste of time and money, it is extremely repetitive.

Probably one of the most fun movies of the year, "Hustlers" flows with great kinetic energy that makes it endlessly entertaining.

' as visually she is breathtaking in various outfits- particularly the white dress!

About half way through this movie I started to fidget and the whole thing just became a tedious snoozefest.

1/100th the length of the long drawn out Xmas gift exchange.

Constance Wu was enjoyable.

This amazing and compelling experience of a slice of life is powerful and sensitive portrayal of the connections and the travails of the lives of what seems to amount to be essentially single women living in a high-stakes life in an effort to survive.

But they each start to become empty near the end as the lack of depth and ethical stakes become too obvious to ignore.

It's was completely boring
