I'd love to recommend it for everything it is, but I find myself arguing against it for many of those same reasons. Full Review
The Daily Times (Tennessee)
[T]he two best performances come from Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence....[Adams] is terrifically mischievous, with a sociopathic glint in her eye...
4 stars out of 5 -- An extremely entertaining, brilliantly acted, highly diverting film...
Rating: 3/5 -- Russell might have been better served playing against the material somewhat - to draw out its darker, more discursive commentary on the American Dream circa-the late '70s. Full Review
Rating: A- -- There's never a dull moment in American Hustle and the pieces all fit together. At the end, a lot of the people onscreen have been hustled, but the viewers are all richly rewarded. Full Review
[The] dizzying, outlandishly entertaining AMERICAN HUSTLE is a 21-first century screwball farce about 20th-century con men....A film that is big hearted and off the wall in equal measure.
Los Angeles Times
[P]erfectly executed...wall-to-wall fun...filled with the joy of expert filmmaking on every level...
Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, and Amy Adams star in director David O. Russell's fictional period crime drama about a reckless FBI agent who recruits a con man and his alluring partner into a scheme to ensnare corrupt politicians and gangsters. Smooth-talking Irving Rosenfeld (Bale) is a hustler of the highest order. No mark is off limits for Rosenfeld, especially when his crafty partner Sydney Prosser (Adams) is by his side. When renegade FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Cooper) thrusts the deceptive duo into the treacherous world of New Jersey power players and underworld heavies, the thrill of the hunt grows too strong to resist. Meanwhile, New Jersey politician Carmine Polito (Jeremy Renner) gets caught in the middle, and Rosenfeld's capricious wife Rosalyn (Jennifer Lawrence) holds more power than anyone could imagine. Louis C.K. and Jack Huston costar.
