One-line Reviews (202)

It's all a bit predictable in terms of comedic delivery.

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.

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

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

Unwatchable and a waste of time.

Unfunny pointless remake.

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.

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

Funny, lighthearted and enjoyable.

If you want to waste 90 minutes of your life, do something else with your time

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

It's a enjoyable movie, nothing serious.

Pretty pointless .

Very entertaining.

Boring as hel....

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

Funny and highly entertaining .

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

One of the worst movies of 2019 so far !!

Her slapstick humor is entertaining.

A quite entertaining comedy film!

Entertaining and worth my time.

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

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

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

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.

Total Waste of 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.

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

Boring .

Waste of money, time, and effort.

Don´t waste your money.

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

If bored.

The scenes were just stale at times, and unbearably boring!!!

Entertaining and funny - not as bad as people say .

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

" out loud to a pretty much empty theater.

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

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

Very very enjoyable .

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

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

Surprisingly hilarious and intense!

Boring, too boring, way too boring .

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

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

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

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

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

I think id rather watch paint dry

It was a funny movie with a unexpected twist.


A total waste of everyone's time.

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

Don't waste your time.

Unwatchable .

There was no story!!

A couple of funny moments but most of the movie was just boring and stupid.

Save your money.

It was entertaining which is what we wanted!

Really enjoyed it .

As far as the film goes, it was boring.

Entertaining .

Enjoyable and light-hearted.

It got so boring and so cringy.

Not oscar worthy, but funny and entertaining.

Really enjoyed it.

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

Horrible- painful waste of time.

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.

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

The rest was a ridiculous bore.

Its funny, entertaining, what more do you need.

Pointless remake .

Her style of comedy is very repetitive and completely unoriginal.

I fell asleep multiple times .

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

Enjoyable .

Unwatchable .

Screenplay: bland.

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.

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

The story is boring.

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

Predictable and nothing to remember it by.

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 !

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

One of the worst movies I've ever seen .

A waste of time .

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.

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.

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

Enjoyable .

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

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.

No plot.

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.

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

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

MIDLY Entertaining Trash .

One of the worst movies I have seen.

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

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.

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

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

Easy-watching, enjoyable movie.

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

Entertaining I guess.

Don't waste your time or energy.

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

Fun and Entertaining Female Remake .

The film had an unexpected twist towards the end which I thought was great.

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

To be honest it's a good film, bit daft in places but overall worth watching for a giggle.

I thoroughly enjoyed it.

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

Enjoyable .

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!

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

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

It deserves at the very least 7/10 considering how consistently entertaining, humorous, and charming it is.

Boring unentertaining garbage.

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

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

Waste of time.

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

My champion is the soft, because nothing happened.

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.

Don't waste your time or money.

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.

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

Don't waste your time!

the worst movie I've seen ever .

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.

It appears that the makers severely underestimated the audiences intelligence believing that people would find a pale imitation as interesting or funny as the original, but obviously they're wrong, I suspect even the actors thought it was boring mid production as their performances are pretty flat, Hathaway looks like she wants to be elsewhere and Rebel Wilson simply runs through her rude Australian routine to formula.

Don't waste your time on this movie.

I literally fell asleep at how unfunny it is.

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

Entertaining .

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

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.

Not bad, enjoyable.

Whilst there are a few laughs to be found here, Wilson plays her usual vulgar self (yawn) and Sharp is just not strong enough for his part and so it is left to Hathaway to put in the best showing.

The final two twists were unexpected as well.

Really funny and entertaining.

The characters had no development or background, and everything was just a huge waste of time.

It was funny, and all around entertaining.

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

Boring and unfunny.

It's pretty funny, and worth the watch.

Don't waste your money.

Waste of your time, not even funny.

Boring and unfunny.

What a waste of time.

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.

Yes, its boring from the very start.

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.

Don't waste your time .

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

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

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.

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

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

Rebel Wilson and Anne Hathaway together, was unexpected.

The movie was entertaining and funny.

Confusing plot with loose ends and characters were not believable.

Terrible waste of time .

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

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

I enjoyed it a lot.

TLDR: Do yourself a favor and don't waste your time or money.

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

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

Don't waste your money.


Entertaining Enough .

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.

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

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.

What a waste of Anne Hathaway - unwatchable .

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.

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.

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 felt a bit slow paced at times.

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

This movie started out a bit disjointed for me.

Overall boring, predictable and unoriginal.

The acting is bland and the jokes not that funny.

Waste of time .

anne was incredible and the plot as for me was unexpected

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 .

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

Nothing happened!

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

It gets boring for most of the movie.

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

I did get a lot of laughs from it and it was enjoyable to watch.

I enjoyed it.

Save your money.

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