Don't waste your time on this movie.

A quite entertaining comedy film!

Boring unentertaining garbage.

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.

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 !

Terrible waste of time .

The story is boring.

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

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

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.

Entertaining .

Waste of your time, not even funny.

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

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

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

Don't waste your money.

This movie started out a bit disjointed for me.

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.

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

I enjoyed it.

Very entertaining.

Pretty pointless .

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.

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

Unwatchable and a waste of time.

I thoroughly enjoyed it.

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

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.

The acting is bland and the jokes not that funny.

anne was incredible and the plot as for me was unexpected

The rest was a ridiculous bore.

Her style of comedy is very repetitive and completely unoriginal.

It was entertaining which is what we wanted!

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

It was a funny movie with a unexpected twist.

the worst movie I've seen ever .

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.

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.

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

The only really entertaining bits are in the trailer, I don't think I laughed once.

Waste of time .

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!

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 .

Another beige performance from Anne Hathaway, the 'English' accent was ridiculous and made the film unwatchable.

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

Enjoyable humour don't take it too seriously rebel is great

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

Total Waste of time...

Really enjoyed it .

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

Can be entertaining for viewers who haven't seen "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.

it felt a bit slow paced at times.

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

Boring, too boring, way too boring .

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

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

Confusing plot with loose ends and characters were not believable.

It got so boring and so cringy.

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

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

Screenplay: bland.

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.

Waste of money, time, and effort.

Don't waste your time!

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

Horrible- painful waste of 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.

Entertaining and worth my time.

Unfunny pointless remake.

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.

Unwatchable .

One of the worst movies I have seen.

Don't waste your time or money.

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

A few days ago i wrote a review that tall grass was the worst movie of the year.

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

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

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.

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.

Boring .

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

One of the worst movies I've ever seen .

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.

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

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.

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.

My champion is the soft, because nothing happened.

What a waste of Anne Hathaway - unwatchable .

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

No plot.

Her slapstick humor is entertaining.

I literally fell asleep at how unfunny it is.

I think id rather watch paint dry

The final two twists were unexpected as well.

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.

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

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

Enjoyable and light-hearted.

Surprisingly hilarious and intense!

Enjoyable .

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.

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

" out loud to a pretty much empty theater.

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.

I enjoyed it a lot.

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

A total waste of everyone's time.

Don't waste your time.

Don't waste your money.

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

Save your money.

Its funny, entertaining, what more do you need.

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

Boring as hel....

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

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

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

Entertaining Enough .

Even though it was almost 90 minutes, which is my ideal feature film duration, it dragged and exhibited minuscule entertainment.

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

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

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

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.

Predictable and nothing to remember it by.

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

A waste of time .

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

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.

Entertaining .

Really funny and entertaining.

What a waste of time.

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

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

Overall boring, predictable and unoriginal.

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.

For anyone who has never seen "Scoundrels" this will likely be a good watch, suitably entertaining.

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

The movie was entertaining and funny.


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

Boring and unfunny.

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

I fell asleep multiple times .

Fun and Entertaining Female Remake .

Funny and highly entertaining .

Very very enjoyable .

It gets boring for most of the movie.

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


Waste of time.

Don´t waste your money.

Yes, its boring from the very start.

Entertaining I guess.

Don't waste your time .

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

Boring and unfunny.

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

It's pretty funny, and worth the watch.

As far as the film goes, it was 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.

Save your money.

One of the worst movies of 2019 so far !!

Not oscar worthy, but funny and entertaining.

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

Don't waste your time or energy.

It was funny, and all around entertaining.

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

If you're having a little trouble falling asleep at night, pop on this movie and let zzzz's be induced.

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

Not bad, enjoyable.

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

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.

Rebel Wilson and Anne Hathaway together, was unexpected.

Unwatchable .

So disappointed with the terrible script, horrible attempt at a posh UK accent, long drawn out scenes that went nowhere.

Enjoyable .

It's a enjoyable movie, nothing serious.

There was no story!!

Entertaining and funny - not as bad as people say .

Easy-watching, enjoyable movie.

Boring .

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