The Hustle

My condition is 100% mental.
14 January 2020

This is a remake of a remake, which as A Star is Born has shown isn’t always a bad thing. The Hustle is bad though. Really bad.

The premise isn’t funny, the jokes don’t land. Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson come off as the least entertaining people in the world. There are funny lines but any humour that actually comes from the plot or characters has been hoovered out, leaving nothing but a husk of a film.

Tedious drivel.
