AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: The Hustle's stars might make an effective comedy team in a different setting, but this gender-flipped remake of a remake adds little beyond its feminine twist.

Movie Info

Rebel Wilson and Anne Hathaway have winning chemistry as a pair of con artists plying their trade in a stunning seaside town in the south of France. Josephine Chesterfield (Hathaway) is a glamorous, seductive Brit with a sprawling home in Beaumont-sur-Mer and a penchant for defrauding gullible wealthy men from all corners of the world. Into her well-ordered, meticulously moneyed world bursts Penny Rust (Wilson), an Aussie who is as free-form and fun-loving as Josephine is calculated and cunning. Where Penny amasses wads of cash by ripping off her marks in neighborhood bars, Josephine fills her safe with massive diamonds after ensnaring her prey in glitzy casinos. Despite their different methods, both are masters of the art of the fleece so they con the men that have wronged women. Wilson's talent for physicality and Hathaway's withering wit are a combustible combination as the pair of scammers pull out all the stops to swindle a naïve tech billionaire (Alex Sharp).

All Critics (171) | Top Critics (41)

A generally unfunny and regressive remake.

September 27, 2019 | Full Review…

This is a slab of cold, unfunny comedy, just lying there, very very odd given the two talented performers at the center of it.

The Hustle just isn't very good, and the only con being pulled is on any audience member who has found themselves coerced into buying a ticket.

Hathaway is a pleasure to watch but this role is beneath her pay grade.

May 17, 2019 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

The Hustle wants to say something about the inherent sexism of the rich... but it never manages to overcome its weak jokes and tired plot points.

May 16, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

It's the irony of all ironies that one walks away from "The Hustle" feeling a little, well, hustled.
