The Hustle film review: Anne Hathaway, Rebel Wilson play con artists in awful remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels

  • Film recreates set pieces from 1988 Michael Caine-Steve Martin movie and its David Niven-Marlon Brando predecessor, yet contrives to strips them of all comedy
  • The script is woeful, and the lack of chemistry between the leads pitiful. That Wilson gets her only laugh posing as a sack of garbage says everything
