So last night I was lucky enough to see an advance screening of Hustlers with our listeners and I was really nervous to watch the movie!
We've been hearing about this film for awhile now, we love the cast and the concept and I was worried that it wasn't going to live up to the hype!
Then the movie starts and I was hooked!! Without spoiling anything, lets get through the major points!
- This is one of Jennifer's BEST performances. I loved getting to see her play this badass woman who isn't always nice but is a EFFEN BOSS!!!! You really get to see Jennifer's acting range in this film and I didn't see JLo...I saw "Ramona." You want to be her friend and yet you are kind of scared to trust her!
- Constance Wu is GREAT...actually EVERYONES performance is on point! But I watch "Fresh off the Boat" which Constance stars in and I love "Crazy Rich Asians" and she just transforms into Destiny!
- There are cameos and special moments that had me smiling from ear to ear!
- The story is GREAT! If you want to read the article that the movie is based off CLICK HERE!
- My co-worker said it felt long, but I didn't feel that way!
- Go see it!!!! That is all!
Now below - check out the the REAL women that were behind the scam!
The girl with Jennifer Lopez is the real "Destiny" - her character is played by Constance Wu! Jennifer's character Ramona is based on Samantha Barbash - according to Oprah Magazine
It’s titled Underscoreand is set to hit shelves later this month. Claiming Hustlers is a farce, Barbash ensures her written story from cover to cover is the truth, detailing her nights with entertainment moguls and Fortune 500 CEOs.
“They’re going off a false story. I was not a stripper. Everything—where [J-Lo] is going on poles and stuff—that’s not me,” the reported. She called the ordeal a “living nightmare” and told the Post, “It’s my story she’s making money off of. If she wants to play me, then she should have gotten the real story. … They should have worked with me instead of against me.”Her lawyer, however, toldPage Six, “We plan on seeing the movie before deciding on what steps to take.”
