You might think this movie could be good BUTT it's not.
September 19, 2019
Sadly though, nothing sticks and it's easily forgotten soon after you see it.
September 17, 2019
Written and directed by Lorene Scafaria, the film isn't as lean as it should be. The scam plays out redundantly, again and again.
September 16, 2019
These women unapologetically love being rich, but they never seem to realise that attacking vile men isn't actually a way forward.

J-Lo is the only reason to see it.
September 16, 2019
And yet for all this it stubbornly refuses to come to life, hampered by a lack of sympathetic characters, a repetitive story and by Scafaria's apparent doubts as to who this distinctly tawdry tale belongs to.
September 14, 2019
A toothless crime drama that doesn't take advantage of its shady plot.
September 13, 2019
The movie is so-so, however, JLo -- who has always been stuck in dumb romcoms or boring dramas -- gives the performance we have always believed she is capable of giving.
September 13, 2019
Hustlers embodies a trashy music video that stops periodically for some really bad dialogue and plotting.
September 13, 2019
Comparisons to Scorsese are...let's be nice and say "unfounded."
September 13, 2019
The very idea of Hustlers is so undeniably appealing at its core that it takes you a while to finally realize that it never really comes together in a satisfying manner.
September 13, 2019
Hustlers is appalling.
September 13, 2019
The film is at its best when it's about the bond between the women, but it's a theme that doesn't hit home until far too late.
September 13, 2019
This tepid, watered down, sanitized chick flick of strip club ladies getting some kind of twisted revenge on the men they entertain misses the mark entirely.
September 13, 2019
The real pull is the bond forged onscreen between [Constance] Wu, [Jennifer] Lopez and the others running the operation, but even that gets lost in the end.
September 13, 2019
Jennifer Lopez sizzles, but this generic 'Goodfellas' riff is more zero calorie empowerment.
September 13, 2019
Yet, while it's superficially entertaining, this true-life tale of the lap dancers who drugged their clients and maxed out their credit cards is, like visiting a strip club, ultimately a bit depressing.
September 12, 2019
For all its pizzazz and energy, 'Hustlers' skims over the surface of what's actually a pretty disturbing story. Of course, for many the picture's wild-eyed combination of glitz and gleeful revenge will be enough.
September 12, 2019
Despite its welcome depiction of mutually supportive sisterhood, Scafaria's film becomes bogged down in sticky moral entanglements. Even more problematic, this is an emotionally chilly yarn exhibiting little warmth or open compassion for its characters.
September 12, 2019
Hustlers is nicely made, and Lopez and Wu are very good in the leads, but this fact-based drama is eventually overcome by moral confusion.
