Originally titled Nasty Women, The Hustle stars Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson as two women from very different walks of life. One is a low rent scam artist and the other high class. At first, Hathaway takes Wilson in and teaches her how to be the ultimate con artist. Eventually though, they compete to take down a young tech billionaire and con him out of his fortune. But as the contest goes on, it soon becomes apparent to the women that they may have more in common than either initially thought.
The comedy is a remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels but with a female twist. 1988 Frank Oz-directed original took place in the French Riviera where Steve Martin and Michael Caine played two con men competing to swindle an American heiress out of $50,000.
