Second Trailer for 'The Hustle' Starring Rebel Wilson & Anne Hathaway
"We're not nice women. We're con artists!" The Revenge is on! MGM has debuted the second official trailer for summer comedy The Hustle, playing off of The Avengers and the hype for that big blockbuster movie opening this week. The Hustle is a gender-swapped remake of comedy classic Dirty Rotten Scoundrels from 1988. In this one, Rebel Wilson and Anne Hathaway star as two "down-and-out" con artists, one low rent and the other high class, who team up to take down the dirty rotten men who have wronged them. The original movie involves the two of them participating in a secret "loser leaves town" contest to see who can out scam the other. This one also stars Tim Blake Nelson, Alex Sharp, Ingrid Oliver, Emma Davies, and Douggie McMeekin. An amusing trailer, not the funniest, but it's good. Hopefully the movie is better.
Here's the second official trailer for Chris Addison's The Hustle, direct from MGM's YouTube:
In the hilarious new comedy The Hustle, Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson star as female scam artists, one low rent and the other high class, who team up to take down the dirty rotten men who have wronged them. A remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. The Hustle is directed by British actor-turned-filmmaker Chris Addison, making his feature directorial debut after directing episodes of "Veep" and a few other TV show episodes previously. The screenplay is written by Stanley Shapiro & Paul Henning, and Dale Launer, and Jac Schaeffer; from a story written by Stanley Shapiro & Paul Henning, and Dale Launer. United Artists & MGM will release Addison's The Hustle in theaters everywhere on May 10th this summer. Who's going to watch?
As this is a "gender swapped remake" I wonder if it will echo the original film where the two main protagonists are outfoxed by the wily 'mark' who happens to be of the other sex? Somehow I doubt it.

...lol...was it? I don't care for either actress so I didn't waste my time watching it. However, I will take your word for it, shiboleth. You usually have a pretty good take on these clips and trailers. Cheers.

Unfortunately, yes, it is bad, Bo. I'm not in the mood to go on and describe it. Because I see typical humor made for, as you might say, the people who connect stories with the lowest common denominator when it comes to something intelligent. And this is very far from anything intelligent or entertaining. Of course, I dare you to try it for yourself. But in my opinion, that really would be a dare ...

Hope it's a bit better than the trailer looks. I like Hathaway and maybe Addison can translate his Veep experience to his first film. The 3 writers who wrote Dirty Rotten Scoundrels were essentially pulled out of retirement for this remake that's not supposed to be a remake ...
