Universal Studios Home Entertainment: "THE HUSTLE" [BLU-RAY/DVD]


The Hustle is a 2019 American comedy film directed by Chris Addison and written by Stanley Shapiro, Paul Henning, Dale Launer, and Jac Schaeffer. It is a female-centered remake of the 1988 film Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, which is itself a remake of the 1964 film Bedtime Story. The film stars Anne Hathaway, Rebel Wilson, Alex Sharp, and Dean Norris, and follows two women who set out to con an internet millionaire. 


Two con artists, sophisticated Josephine and abrasive Penny, meet on their way to the French Riviera to find rich men to swindle. They initially work against each other until Penny asks Josephine to take her under her wing, and teach her how to con the way she does. It works at first, but the two then compete to trick a rich tech wiz, Thomas Westerburg.

Penny begins to fall for Thomas when she sees that he is a nice guy who wants to create a new app. In the end Thomas tricks both women into giving him money for his app, revealing himself to be the grandson of a notorious con artist named Medusa.  Thomas meets the ladies again sometime later and proposes that they become a team. They agree.
