What the Rotten Tomatoes reviews are saying about Hustlers

Toronto 2019: Jennifer Lopez on learning to pole dance in Hustlers

Constance Wu (Crazy Rich Asians) is a just-starting-out dancer from Queens who goes by Destiny; Jennifer Lopez is her Bronx-born mentor, Ramona - the kind of ravishing, bikini-clad goddess that men can't seem to help throwing down their largest denominations for.

The last couple of years have been very busy for Palmer.

To Wu, the female leadership in creating the movie was made all the more important given the subject matter. Sweet and naive Annabelle, played by Lili Reinhart, would have admired the crocheted, puffed-sleeved, sultry-boho looks favored by Miley Cyrus and Ashley Tisdale. See more in the video below.

She wrote: "Canada Goose's "standards" allow for coyotes to suffer for days in steel traps with a broken or bleeding leg before the trapper returns to shoot or bludgeon them to death, and the company's jackets are stuffed with the down feathers of birds who died violently. If you've got it, flaunt it, the movie seems to say, celebrating a wide range of body types as lovely while limiting just how much ogling audiences are permitted". It's a stark divide between this first and second half of Hustlers, with the film shedding that gritty shaky-cam realism for outright camp - hints of which were scattered through the early parts of the film, including a Britney Spears needledrop that was pure cheesy cinematic poetry. The scam's prelude - which is, admittedly, essential to establish the codependent, maternal relationship between Ramona and Destiny that provides the emotional backbone of the movie - feels like it's nearly from a different movie, and is where Hustlers feels the most atonal. Once it decides it's the latter, the energy immediately kicks in and Hustlers transforms into a zippy, tongue-in-cheek black comedy.

Lopez brought a little of her character, Ramona, with her to the red carpet on Saturday night - the crystal-covered Judith Leiber clutch she was carrying was the one her stripper alter ego used in the film.

Jennifer's make-up for the occasion was on level, too, as she sported her signature golden dewy pores and skin. But despite Wu being the ostensible protagonist of the film, Hustlers belongs to Lopez. The competition is fierce, the clientele is either creepy ("What did daddy do to you?") or racist ("Hey, come here Lucy Liu!") and by the time the men she works for have taken their cut, the money is barely adequate.

"She was never a stage mom, not even in the slightest, but she know that I was really passionate about acting", the 22-year-old said. The actress stood tall, smiled and waved to the crowd as she prevented what could have been a very unsafe incident. She's arrogant, vulnerable, mean, undeniably charming, and a far cry from the Wu's blandly ambitious character that Keo inspired. Actually, she dropped a lot of hints.

She accessorized with a wide white belt, clear heels and major bling, and had her long dyed blonde tresses pulled back into a high and wife ponytail that spread her hair out across much of her back.

Hustlers is crowdpleaser to its core. That idea would later show up a few times in the finished movie. Nominate it for Best Picture, Best Director, and give Jennifer Lopez an Oscar.
