American Hustle was a perfect movie, amazing acting, writing, directing, story, and a perfect blend of humor and drama. To all the people that hate on it in this thread, I'm not sure what you look for in movies, but to me this represented the joy and magic of cinema as a whole. Hands down the most entertaining movie of the year.
Movie was a pile of ****.
Plot was painful, movie was extremely dry, too many forced jokes that weren't funny and my favorite, it was a straight up copy of other crime/mob films. Felt like I was watching a kid shoot a movie after watching a couple Scorcese films. I like Russell too but this was a disaster. Like someone else said, I was happy as hell that it didn't win any awards
