This was one of the worst written movies I have ever seen. The actors all seemed as bored with it as i was. I felt like I was stuck in the theater for three days. Don't go.

With all the buzz, I was looking forward to seeing this movie! Can I have my money back? One of the worst movies I have ever seen. When a movie is great, or even good, it stays in my memory for a long time; I even look forward to maybe seeing it again. I can't remember any of this movie. I couldn't remember any of it even as soon as leaving the theater. I became more and more disappointed as the frames rollllled on. I would probably even want my money back if I had waited and rented it at the box. 10 nominations??? Who are these Academy people anyway? Robots with no intelligence? Ugh.

Although the acting was good, the movie was heavy handed and irritating to sit through. Overbearing, clunky, and overly complex in its plot, we found ourselves wishing it would end much sooner than the 2+ hours running time. Left the theatre feeling like we had been "hustled" ourselves, trying to understand why so many reviewers enjoyed the film and rated it so highly.

The understated comedy of the opening scene of American Hustle is a delicious appetizer to the banquet that's about to served. I continue to marvel, a day later, at the beautifully crafted and acted characters. This cast held nothing back in their acting. Go! Enjoy! Mangiare!

Implausible characters, completely sideways plot lines and some of the WORST acting I have ever seen. How Jennifer Lawrence gets acting jobs I will never know. That was one of the worst films I have ever endured through two hours of torture to watch!!
