    I really enjoyed this movie but can't figure out why it got so much Oscar buzz. It is a great American story, well written and very well acted making for a good movie. However, nominating most of the cast for an Oscar is just crazy. I believe you will enjoy the movie at the theater or at home.

    This movie was well acted and had a lot of interesting plot lines. A revisit of 1970s financial scandals. A couple love stories and triangles. The thing is that it is easy to get lost if you miss something... there is so much going on ... then the end won't make a lot of sense at first. It was interesting to see that although styles and technology have changed... people really haven't.

    This movie was pretty good, but 10 Oscar nominations?? Get real. I will say the cast was outstanding and should be rewarded in the ensembe or group category, although I don't know if the Oscars has such a category. It's worth the money, but then I always go when it is cheap time. Christian Bale and Jeremy Renner were the best. and pretty boy Cooper was surprisingly good. Loved seeing the old cars and the music was an added plus.

    I liked it. Pacing slowed down in spots, but the ending brought everything together and saved it for me. Outstanding performances by Adams and Lawrence. The scene with Cooper's Mom freaked me out.

    I was looking forward to seeing this movie. The trailer made it look like it was going to be a lot of fun! The problem, for me, was that the script didn't deliver on the promise made by the trailer. I felt that the script wasn't sure what it wanted to be. The comedy was often undercut by what happened next and it left me wondering how I was supposed to be feeling about what I was laughing at. Some of the characters would do or say something funny that would then be "short circuited" by what was said or done next. It got to be confusing and sad. I felt like the script didn't trust itself to deliver the goods. Either that or the filmmakers weren't sure of the film that they wanted to deliver.
    In the end, my wife and I left saying that the performances were great but that we didn't need to see it again. That's not how I want to spend my movie money, I want to discuss it and get caught up in the film with the audience, that's why I go to the movies rather then stay at home and rent.

    American Hustle is a failed attempt to duplicate "The Sting". Not even close. What a let down.

    I liked American Hustle. I had high hopes that this would be of the same calibre as say Goodfellas, but it turned out that this is not the case. Still, certainly enjoyable.

    I was really excited to see this film and my expectations were pretty high. Well, I am glad to say that this film surpassed everything that I have hoped for, it was truly an amazing film. The film was really funny which I did not expect and it was perfectly cast. The film has great characters that are well developed, the dialogue is sharp, it has interesting and relatable themes, and it is an incredibly fun film to watch. Jennifer Lawrence gives an amazing performance as the con man's jealous, ball-busting wife and it is just mind-blowing that someone that young can be that good at something. I love how the film harmonized tragedy and comedy, seriousness and outlandishness and because of that the film is very vibrant and has a wide range of emotions. Overall, I highly recommend seeing this movie on the big screen.

    My friend really wanted to see this film and even though I was not as excited about it, I went along with her. Well, I am really glad I did because this film totally rocked and I highly recommend seeing it in the theater. I don’t remember the last time I had so much fun in the movie theater, this film was so exciting to watch. The film had a perfect cast and Jennifer Lawrence was definitely the shining star, I will not be surprised if she wins yet another Oscar for this role. I really enjoyed the story because it had great themes and it was really funny and really sad in the same time, basically it was extremely entertaining. I was engaged throughout the whole film and I praise Russell for making such a wonderful and masterful film.
