    American Hustle Movie Review


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     CherryLA told me, 'The movie didn't match my expectations since I adored the movie "Silver Linings Playbook" - that I found charming, witty and kept my interest the entire film so I had very high expectations of "American Hustle." I've seen all the glowing reviews and think that I saw a different movie. To me they were going for the twists of "Usual Suspects" but the cast wasn't able to play the parts with the script that just didn't fly on the screen. The middle of the movie was really slow and I literally zoned out for a few moments since it just didn't work for me. Amy Adams worked hard but the movie was just a big yawn.'
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    I didn't fall for the hustle since I couldn't lose myself in the fast talk, confusing plot twists and the slow middle.


    American Hustle Directed by David O. Russell. With Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence.


    A con man, Irving Rosenfeld, along with his seductive British partner, Sydney Prosser, is forced to work for a wild FBI agent, Richie DiMaso. DiMaso pushes them into a world of Jersey powerbrokers and mafia.
