The Hustle

Female-led remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, featuring Anne Hathaway in the Michael Caine role and Rebel Wilson in Steve Martin’s shoes – the tale of the con artistes in the riviera town of Beaumont-sur-Mer.  Whilst a perennially fun romp one very quickly gets the impression that director Chris Addison’s brief was “make Dirty Rotten Scoundrels”. Though a bit hollow, I enjoyed Anne Hathaway’s Josephine, underlining that a mostly serious actress is willing and more than able to embrace the ridiculous. 👍
