A modern day female Goodfellas! This is a career best performance for Jennifer Lopez and absolute marvel of a film. The direction is both Scorcese like and unique. An absolute must see!

Like a mix of Scorsese movies with hints of the female gaze. Similarly has some pacing issues, but this is effective overall.

The truly standout woman in both Beauty and Dialogue was the Infamous Jennifer Lopez. The film is your modern day Players Club but far more diverse. Our main Character played by Constance Wu was telling the story entirely from her perspective. Film was based on a true story, so take care to realise this is from Dorthy side of the story. You also gain some side of the story from Ramona also. These are those films when people make false Robin Hood beliefs to make doing wrong not seem bad.

What do you get when combine male-dominated gangster films with expensive high heels? You get a female-dominated gangster flick like Hustlers. Despite offering no guns and no clubs to beat up like real mobsters, this powerful and sense of fun drama brings out the absolute best in costume designs, strip club production, screenplay, direction, and performances (particularly Lopez in an absolutely career best and Wu). You have to see to believe this movie to understand what’s so good to be true.

This film was ehh. There was a message in the story but it seemed there was no real goal for it. This movie honestly felt like a 'Late Night' music video. The audio was good but was your everyday audio. Camera work was interesting in some parts but boring in others. The only character's that were decent was Wu and Lopez's, though there was no real character development. I I was one that was enticed by strippers or want an all female mafia like movie I might have really liked this film.
