re: American Hustle


I really enjoyed it but didn't think it was great. All the actors were fantastic though.

When Bradley cooper impersonates Louis ck on the couch I fricking lost it. There are quite a few funny moments.

disagree with those who think Amy Adams stole the show. Her accent very inconsistent. In some scenes I honestly couldn't tell what she was trying to do.


Seeing as her character was based on an American who uses a fake British accent to con people, there might be a reason for that.

Just saw it, and thought it was great. I actually didn't like Lawrence's acting that much in this movie but her scenes were pretty funny

For the Law and Order geeks (like me) Polino's wife was an ADA on the original L&O series, Serena Southerlyn played by Elizabeth Rohm...took me a while to figure it out.

Amy Adams also was in Drop Dead Gorgeous, but y'all probably knew that.

Great movie and great soundtrack!

It was an ok movie. Good enough but not nearly worth the hype. Bale was the only thing I would call outstanding.

Just got back from seeing this movie and I thought it was just alright. I expected to laugh more.

I think my expectations were too high going in. Probably a good movie by itself.

Why are people expecting this to be a funny movie?

Same. I was expecting a more fast paced narrative like Goodfellas or Blow. It was good, but slow.

Probably the OPs fault.

It really is great. Go see it! Funnest and funniest movie of the year. All-star cast performs at all-star level. David O. Russell is quickly becoming one of my favorite directors.

I didn't realize this movie was supposed to be a comedy. I never laughed. Still thought it was great though, especially Bale's performance.

Our senses of humor must be completely different. I laughed more during American Hustle than any other movie I watched this year.

It's not. But it's still really funny.

re: American Hustle


You didn't laugh when Cooper messes up Bale's hair in the beginning? That set the tone. Bale's facial expression almost had me in tears. Loved the movie. Its one that will get better with repeated viewings. At points it was slow but it came together nicely.

I can't stand Bradley Cooper but he stole the show IMO.

re: American Hustle


pretty much anything bradley cooper did was funny

i mean the fact that they had 2 complete idiots as central characters who create zany scenarios = comedy
