A few enterprising strippers get together to scam a bunch of arrogant Wall Streeters and make loads of cash. This is the catchy hook of writer-director Lorene Scafaria’s HUSTLERS, the literally ripped-from-the-headlines story about a group of women who did just that. Their shortcut to the American Dream was achieved through intelligence and sultry charm. Based on Jessica Pressler’s New York Magazine article, “The Hustlers at Scores,” the picture’s rapturous energy crackles, sparkles, and dazzles. Scorsese in stilettos, GOODFELLAS slathered in frosty lip gloss and body glitter, this is a must-see Girl’s Night Out movie.
Destiny (Constance Wu) is just barely scraping by at her new job stripping at a club. Her self-esteem is at rock bottom, having to suffer racist, blowhard patrons calling her “Lucy Liu.” By the time her shift is done, she’s greased more wheels at the establishment instead of netting better take-home pay. Once she meets glamorous Ramona (Jennifer Lopez) – a colleague at the club who seduces the clientele with her banging body, incredible athleticism (aka. bouncy splits) and confidence – her world changes for the better. Ramona takes Destiny under her wing, teaching her the art of the striptease, but even better, how to read and manipulate men. This empowerment, along with the crazy cash influx, gives Destiny the boost she desperately needed for survival.
However, the financial bubble bursts, leaving them to toil in the very unfriendly world outside club walls for a few years. Ramona gets a job in retail, working for an unsympathetic boss (Jon Glaser). Destiny, now a single mom desperate to make ends meet, is forced move back in with her Grandma (Wai Ching Ho) to support her baby girl. With the stripping scene imploded, Ramona brings Destiny in on a get-rich-quick scheme: drug wealthy unsuspecting marks and max out their credit cards at the club. They’d each take a cut, and their hapless victims would think they had a hot evening. The dynamic duo even ropes in former colleagues Mercedes (Keke Palmer) and Annabelle (Lili Reinhart) to aid in this plan. As it does, their business model balloons bigger than they could imagine and, of course, that’s where the troubles begin.
