I can't tell you how disappointed I was in the movie. I think the reason for the long wait for the movie is because of Jennifer Lopez. I thought this movie was beneath her acting abilities. Jennifer has made movies and she can act, for those of you who saw "Enough" knows exactly what I'm talking about. I didn't understand that 2 wrongs make a right. What was the actual point??
If this movie wasnt so great then why is the waiting list soooo long... All i see is boomers and Karens commenting negatively in the comment section because theyre too prude.
Of course a movie like this would be divisive. Don't let grumpy haters turn you away. This movie is a gem. It's a fun story about strippers, crime, and most of all friendship. Jennifer Lopez and Constance Wu are delightful, and appearances by Lizzo and Cardi B are definitely charming.
I agree with other commentators. If this is movie is about female empowerment, then we are really in trouble. There are no sympathetic characters in this movie just variations on criminality. Mothers do not let your daughters see this.
Even my wife couldn't say she liked this disaster.
What were they thinking? Some true stories just do not make good screenplays!
And 'Oscar buzz'? Seriously? For what?
What a HUGE disappointment! Dull with a capital Dee You Ell Ell. I waited over a month to see this and was rewarded with a steaming heap. Take warning all of you out there in library-land: no matter how bad you think you want to see this movie, you DON'T want to see this movie.
J Lo quote re Super Bowl 2020 half time show: Lopez also reiterated the importance of female role models in this Super Bowl. “The two teams that are playing are run by women,” she reminded us, likely referring to 49ers coach Katie Sowers and Norma Hunt, the matriarch of the Chiefs, “and then you’ve got two women headlining the halftime show. That statement alone for me is empowering. When I think of my daughter and all the little girls of the world to be able to have that to see two Latinas doing that in this country at this time, it’s very empowering for us.”
She can say this after starring in this movie?! This movie is a disgrace.
Why was this movie raved about by critics....My wife and I fell asleep in the first 45 minutes and woke up saying that was awful!
This movie basically tries to tell us that two wrongs make a right. Everybody involved, both men and women, need to look inward and wonder what they can do to make some positive improvements to their character.
No! Stay away! We have already sued the studio for taking away 1 1/2 hours of our lives. Don't even let your dog see this--we blind folded ours while we fast forwarded through it...All copies should be burned!
Liked Julia Stiles being in this and the narrative styles it took (i.e Molly Game (2017)/Annihilation (2018). I think I just don't feel much chemistry with these Jennifer Lopez types of movies. This is a bit better than Second Act (2019), but I think Anaconda (1997) was the best movie I think she acted in. Everything else just seems to feel flat when she's involved.
At the end of the movie just felt "whatever". Its feels too glossy and I didn't really feel into the characters the actresses were trying to portray, but just saw the actresses themselves more in some glossy movie like some silly Hollywood party with these A-list actresses having a girl's night out rather taking this movie itself seriously. Maybe, with the exception of Hailee Steinfeld, singers just don't make great actresses, specially the likes that make smutty music.
3 stars. At best, this is a cautionary tale for older (or rich) men at best. LOTS of T&A; if not rated R, it certainly should be. Although Jennifer Lopez's performance was good, we wouldn't rate it as Oscar-worthy (she apparently got a nomination). Lots of time was spent on the characters' performances, which got boring quickly. Would rather have seen a bit more time spent explaining better what happened at the end, as that seemed rushed and vague. Inspired by a story in NY Magazine a few years back. An OK movie but nothing to feel bad about if you miss it.
When you can turn the movie off part way through and debate with yourself on whether you want to even finish the movie, that speaks volumes on if this is a good movie or not. It did start out well, but just became boring and the ending... leaving you hanging about Jennifer Lopez and Constance Wu characters ever being reconciled! Nothing about this movie was Oscar performance worthy.
I agree with the general consensus: It started off well and quickly lost steam. And I can’t believe anyone thought Jennifer Lopez deserved an Oscar nom for the part. Yes, she looks amazing, but nothing about this movie was exceptional. We turned it off half way through.
First, I luv Jennifer Lozpez…. I seen her on Ellen with all her bruises from training for this film... and was so so excited to see all these women do what they had to do. Well first off she only did a pole routine for hmmmm 2 min... the movie I thought was so so boring.. Just was very disappointed in this film..... People are talking and upset Jen did not get nominated for an Oscar performance... GEEEEEEEEZ I wonder why she didn't …. Yes we all have difference in opinion... IT JUST PLAIN SUCKED!
Some people think this movie should be nominated for an academy award ,but it is just not that good.It is an ok movie but it does not rate that high.
A surprisingly good movie. Very well done, not degrading or trashy. Worth a watch. Opened my eyes and has made me think differently of people who are employed at exotic clubs. We're all human, and our decisions whether wise or otherwise are always influenced by our needs/wants. Also, Jennifer Lopez is unrecognizable in this movie - she's tough - not a trace of her previous quirky romcom characters. Same can be said of Constance Wu!
If you want to see a lot of T and A and pole dancing this is the movie for you. If you want a movie with more than a predictable and simple plot skip it, it is terrible.
The story of a group of women out to beat the system and target the wealthy is compelling, and there's plenty of solid performances to go around.
Plenty of eye candies and Lopez was showing off her impressive physique in her bikinis. But the story, though supposedly with a message, was not told in an engaging fashion at all. Disappointing.
The strip bar characters are as imagined but the mindset of the victims are not explored enough. Anyway, not my cup of tea though (thanks wiki) based on New York magazine's 2015 article "The Hustlers at Scores A modern Robin Hood story: the strippers who stole from (mostly) rich, (usually) disgusting men and gave to, well, themselves." by Jessica Pressler.
Seemed dragging at times. This is the kind of movie that you can’t wait to end. Had a lot of potential but falls flat.
I wanted to love this movie based on the "women take charge" aspect, but in the end I could not. Though it does start out strong and the stories start off with good details;it falls short and by the end I just wanted it to end.
