i usually don’t ride the hype train,
but everyone was talking about “hustlers“.
the few things i’ve been hearing about this movie:
Jennifer Lopez gave an Oscar-worthy performance.
Jennifer Lopez is getting Oscar buzz.
i had to go see this to believe it.
i’m use to j.lo on her “julia roberts“.
only doing cute and typical romantic comedies,
but getting overlooked for her more serious performances.
i saw “hustlers” last night and in my review-ish opinion…
…that movie was actually really good.
i can see what the hype is about.
j.lo like “acted acted“.
don’t get me started about her on that pole in the opening:
…and then that bad ass chinchilla on the roof.
i was sold after that part.
everyone else came through too.
i don’t think anyone did bad in that entire movie.
as far as the plot:
*the movie was about a group of strippers,
tired of their life circumstances,
who decided to scam business men by drugging and swiping their credit cards.
the movie is centered around one character,
who goes by destiny (constance wu).
in the beginning,
she is basically working a “9-5/desk job” in the stripper world.
once ramona (j.lo) comes into the picture,
along with mercedes (keke palmer) and annabelle (lili reinhart),
they all get up in world of robbery and fraud.
…and it was inspired by a true story.
i can see how they pulled off this scam on these silly males.
Alcohol and a hard pole is usually not a good mix
they even dropped a few gems here and there.
first of all,
i love seeing bad bitches in action.
j.lo was the epitome of a supreme bad bitch.
i learned a couple things in that movie too:
Confidence can get you anything and anywhere
“Drain the clock; not the cock”
you’ll have to see it to understand what i font of.
i think you’ll enjoy “hustlers“.
everyone who participated did really well,
including lizzo and cardi.
i’d like to see cardi do more in acting.
if you see it,
lemme know your thoughts after.
for those who already saw it:
Was “Hustlers” worth the hype for you?
lowkey: cardi reminds me of this one in the face tho…
don’t queen naija and cardi resemble?
i’m sure you’re like “who?”
