I fell asleep multiple times .

Was it maybe that I fell asleep unintentionally or was it because the story tailspinned and almost crashed and burned?

legitimately one of the worst movies I've ever seen .

The huste is reasonably entertaining for a simple comedy, and anne hathaway makes up for a lot of the shortcomings

I think I got hustled into watching this boring unfunny stupid movie, I gave this a 2 star because of one funny bit which I have now forgotten exactly what that was.

Screenplay: bland.

The story is boring.

This is an entertaining and fun summer movie that while not in any way really remarkable is competently directly, nicely performed in a risky movie genre oftentimes quite difficult to accomplish well.

Personally feel like this movie is enjoyable for all members of the family, if you're looking for a movie to see in the Cinema, that isn't quite so serious and will give you a few giggles!

Nothing funny at all here, totally unrealistic (even within the context of this type of movie), and just simply boring.

Her style of comedy is very repetitive and completely unoriginal.

Enjoyable .

Waste of time .

Boring .

Surprisingly hilarious and intense!

the worst movie I've seen ever .

Her slapstick humor is entertaining.

No plot.

My champion is the soft, because nothing happened.

One of the worst movies of 2019 so far !!

The final two twists were unexpected as well.

but whatever it was enjoyable, I don't mind seeing it again if I run into it through amazon or pay per view.

Yes, its boring from the very start.

Overall boring, predictable and unoriginal.

Save your money.

Entertaining and worth my time.

I literally fell asleep at how unfunny it is.

Boring unentertaining garbage.

But if you note what the movie, the actors, and the story is trying to achieve, then it might be more entertaining than you think.

The movie was entertaining and funny.

Entertaining and funny - not as bad as people say .

) oh just remembered one segment of the movie totally threw me off by being totally absurd, but entertaining nonetheless.

People were walking out after 25-30 minutes just saying 'really' & yeah it's a disjointed bunch of pre juvenile incredibly unfunny gags,immature & quite poorly,well,unacted.

It was a funny movie with a unexpected twist.

Most of the jokes were meh and "plot twist" was predictable.

It was so long, so stupid and so boring that I'm truly proud of myself for not falling asleep.

Unwatchable and a waste of time.

I guessed the plot "twist" but still enjoyed it as a bit of mindless entertainment.

I love movies, walked out of this one about 1/4 into the mess .

I think id rather watch paint dry

She makes this movie unwatchable and needs to stop being casted in things.

Not oscar worthy, but funny and entertaining.

Enjoyable .

Even as a silly comedy -- the jokes were so bland and lame.


It is by far the worst movie I've seen so far this year and it surely manages to make the shortlist of the worst movies I've ever seen.

I enjoyed it.

The 'lord of the ring's' scem is sooo not funny, you just want to leave the cinema.

What a waste of Anne Hathaway - unwatchable .

Off course it wasn't an Oscar winning movie, but it was good laugh and unexpected turns throughout.

Waste of time.

Boring, too boring, way too boring .

I just felt the film was to slow and thought the pacing could of been improved with perhaps 10 or 15 extra minutes added onto the film as it was only 1hour and 30 minutesNext i liked the film had a strong message and ideology throughout of female empowerment.

The story was super thin, characters were over the top and there was no real character development, the jokes didn't land for me, all very predictable.

Horrible- painful waste of time.

This is a 1 star waste of everyone's time.

Pretty pointless .

Enjoyable and light-hearted.

As far as the film goes, it was boring.

One of the worst movies I've ever seen .

A quite entertaining comedy film!

I enjoyed it a lot.

Obviously the people who wrote "it was the worst movie they've ever seen" didn't see A Star Is Born, which was absolutely terrible.

This movie was such a cliché and the acting was so bad, that I hope they will both learn a lesson here.

A waste of time .

Really funny and entertaining.

Don't waste your time and money on this Hustle.

There was no story!!

Well coming back to the movie , it made me laugh n laugh, and the Riviera locales are breathtaking, and add that freshness to the movie.

As result, "The Hustle" is an easily forgettable and bland film that lacks the comedic chops to stand out from the crowd.

But boy the whole film was boring, no point I felt I was hooked or slightly interested.

I don't understand the bad reviews, it's an easy fast entertaining flick.

I guess the problem is that my wife and I had just watched Dirty Rotten Scoundrels with Steve Martin and Michael Caine - Very entertaining.

It pains me to say it but overall this movie is just dead in the water, flat as a pancake, its uneventful, its non-adventurous, it unimpressive & it ends up being nothing more than straight into dvd bargain-bin for £4.

I'm not sure if writers are writing all plus size women the same, writing for Rebel Wilson or if Wilson is just picking characters that she has already played before (see Pitch Perfect & How to Be Single), but it is getting very tiresome.

Its funny, entertaining, what more do you need.

A total waste of everyone's time.

Pacing for the 93 min runtime was decent, but the story got a little boring half way through.

Had high hopes because the trailer was pretty good but ended up disappointed by a predictable storyline and

Waste of your time, not even funny.

One of the worst movies I have seen.

DISLIKES:Predictable Victim of Trailers Story Failure Shallow Characters Too political Too Aggressive/Forceful for HumorSUMMARY:Despite some of the good this movie did for me, there were some shortcomings that did not quite work for me as they may for other audiences.

Here I was thinking "the hole in the ground" was the worst waste of my money this year.

Well worth the watch, Rebel and Anne make a great comedy duo.

A great cast, funny, clever and well written script that was entertaining and engaging from start to finish.

It has garnered moderate criticism, some virulent, on IMDB, but I quite enjoyed it.

Confusing plot with loose ends and characters were not believable.

What initially looked like a fun movie turned out to be a huge disappointment, a waste of money, and a waste of my time.

It was so boring that my partner went to sleep, i had tear in my eyes for putting on such a bad movie and eventually turned it off, spoiled a weekend big time.

It would have been zero without her divine smile, her snobbish accent from the planet Mars and her wacky « that was unexpected » when the house-steward is shot.

Unwatchable .

I really wasn't expecting much from this and certainly wasn't expecting it to measure up to Dirty Rotten Scoundrels - but it did - it was really good , really funny really enjoyable- excellently cast with Anne Hathaway playing the classy 'English' con artist juxtaposed against the lower class Australian Rebel Wilson .

It gets boring for most of the movie.

It was funny, and all around entertaining.

Waste of money, time, and effort.

Boring and unfunny.

The acting is bland and the jokes not that funny.

Total Waste of time...

I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Entertaining .

Slow and boring mess, the commercials are the best part of the movie.

Don't waste your money.

Easy-watching, enjoyable movie.

Entertaining .

So, this is a bad film with two talented leads, I must admit that I chuckled a couple of times, but most of the jokes felt flat, with a better script it could've been really good, the twist is really bad, but overall is a bad entertaining film, at least you won't be bored.

Movie was predictable and boring , such a great star cast and due to the predictable and poor script it turns out to be a big time let down !

I like a good stupid-funny movie to balance out all the intense (and over produced) movies out there.

More likely than not, you're going to fall asleep since any attempt at humor fails terribly; Anne Hathaway is playing herself, in a horribly written plot, with terrible actors, really bad editing and amateur direction.

So will it achieve its goal and be entertaining, or so aggressively silly that it robs you of your money?

It was entertaining which is what we wanted!

Josephine and Penny's face offs reduce to bringing each other down and it goes a bit ho hum from there.

Rebel Wilson and Anne Hathaway together, was unexpected.

Terrible waste of time .

It's a enjoyable movie, nothing serious.

Unwatchable .

Fun and Entertaining Female Remake .

Don't waste your time .

What a complete waste of time, a badly remade version of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels with Michael Caine & Steve Martin.

Don't waste your time or energy.

Honestly, a bit funnier and more engaging than the first time around.

I was really worried that this would not meet its predecessor- Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (I haven't seen the original Bedtime Stories), but it was definitely entertaining and had so many funny moments.

No script plot makes zero sense just fumbling from scene to scene by falling over or adlibbing some unfunny nonsense sentence shameful dross embarrassing performance I just dont know who is worse in this utter garbage

Starts mildly slow and it builds up pretty well half way through.

Don't waste your time on this movie.

Nevertheless, still very enjoyable and entertaining and certainly not worth the bad reviews or low score.

Very very enjoyable .

It's only 90 minutes long, but it feels like just a fast paced brush through of scenes that worked better before.

8/10 - I truly don't understand the criticism - while it should've been funnier, it still was highly enjoyable

While the rest of the movie is just dull and cheesy.

" out loud to a pretty much empty theater.

What a waste of time.

It's pretty funny, and worth the watch.

I don't recommend it, not even for one time, it's just waste of time.

Anne's accent was a bit much but otherwise it was quite enjoyable.

Without anything really at stake, even for a comedic reason, it makes this for a more dull experience then anything.

Boring what-so-call-a-comedy movie.

Boring as hel....

Unfunny pointless remake.

Entertaining I guess.

Dull Comedy in which almoust every joke is a bit old and stale .

Boring .

Do yourself a favor, watch the original and save your money.

Don't waste your money.

The 'hustle' itself, the big con they're trying to pull, is so predictable and anti-climactic; it's such a generic film, in a time when 'women' casted remakes are the norm.

The Hustle is a very entertaining film, with great funny actors, cinematography and score.

Watch the original movie and don't waste your time on this.

Well, if you want belong to the post modern establishment where fun is boring and boring is fun, go ahead and watch this.

Aside from Hathaway's horribly obnoxious fake accent, it was entertaining for what it was.

And what's worse, it gives us for a third act in which there is no climax, no final showdown, which makes it all feel pointless and flat.

I fell asleep multiple times, so my word of advice: Just don't watch it

Funny and highly entertaining .

While the hustle dose have a few laughs here and there the majority of the film is fairly boring.

it felt a bit slow paced at times.

Her acting (I've sen before) is blase, dull, lacking in the utmost way any talent whatsoever -- only moviegoers who lack any eye for comedic talent would support her) and she is certainly not worth the price of any movie ticket.

Really enjoyed it .

Save your money.

The Hustle did have it's positives like it was indeed very funny and the acting work from Hathaway and Wilson was very well delivered and very entertaining.

The idea of remaking the same movie a second time, with the only notable change being the characters' genders, makes "The Hustle" feel rather pointless.

The storyline however, was very dull and very slow which made for a very disappointing story and for a movie about con-artists, I would have loved more action and adventure to it which it had little to none.

It was so predictable, less than half way in the cons were obvious.

It got so boring and so cringy.

The rest was a ridiculous bore.

Entertaining Enough .

This movie started out a bit disjointed for me.

Don´t waste your money.
