The Hustle reviews The Hustle… the MOVIE!

The Hustle reviews The Hustle, starring Anne Hathaway, Rebel Wilson, and our exact name and logo.

There’s been a lot of gab over this new Dirty Rotten Scoundrels remake starring Anne Hathaway, Rebel Wilson, and the name of our company — equipped with an almost indistinguishable font (you could’ve at least tried, Hollywood!).

So yesterday, we decided to see for ourselves how the movie — that defenestrated us from our top Google search spot — stacks up. 

If you ask me, Wes Schlag, I gotta say — I kind of liked it… ish (Rebel Wilson did her thing, which was hilarious). But I was in the minority.

The results are in  

“I think a better title for the creators to rip off would’ve been, ‘Bad Accents: The Movie.’” — Alex, senior account executive

“The movie was one continuous belly flop.” — Kaylee, email operations specialist

“It’s a good movie if you want to escape your life for an hour; it’s a bad movie if you want to laugh more than 5 times.” — Katy, senior account executive

“It exceeded my expectations… though, my expectations were really low.” — Adam, general manager

Overall: Stock is down and to the right.
