If Anne and Scarlett had been the female leads, this would have been something.
what a BORING movie. no action at all. pure talk, talk and talk. lots of chest action from Amy Adams though but that's it.
very good movie with a great script, cast and look....the director however has a tendency to have his movies drag at times, which also happens here. Nonetheless, a good film.
Just horrible. If you're thoughtless then you might miss how rediculious the scams are. And by the end I was just angry that the movie wouldn't end and just kept going and going. The acting was good and Jennifer Lawrence was hot but bland story and a huge waste of time.
I found myself constantly looking at my watch to judge when the movie would be over. I got quite bored actually, and could not follow the story easily, if there was a storyline.
This movie needed Anne Hathaway.
Acting is top notch, add hot chicks and the intricate relationships and you have superb entertainment.
This will be deserving of many Oscars.
Sexy lingerie looks stunning on Sofia Vergara or Penelope Cruz; on Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence it's just scary.
I thought it was a great movie. I think Christian Bale should win for best actor. Didn't know he had such chops! And Jennifer Lawrence was outstanding too.
I really love this movie, acting well done. Go see this movie in vip. Worth the price admission
Read the reviews people this is a boring dragged to movie. Terrible don't waste your time or money.
The only thing I enjoyed was the soundtrack (hence, the 1 *). I struggled to stay awake throughout the entire movie. It did nothing for me. Blah. Save your money.
The beginning reads "Some of this actually happened".. Maybe what they wore and the hair styles are what happened. The rest was boring. I have to say Jennifer Lawrence was good. Otherwise blah. Go see Wolf of Wallstreet if you want stuff that actually happened that will blow your mind.
7 golden globes. Obviously not much thought was put into giving those out Absolute garbage movie and lousy exaggerated overacting refunds for ticket price should be given when you exit the show.
Can't even rate it terrible terrible don't waste your time or money not Oscar material Jennifer Lawrence overrated hope she can peel the gold tinfoil of her golden globe to find out its chocolate lousy acting
Don't waste your money. Don't even buy it on DVD terrible in every way doesn't deserve any awards. Movie about conning people. I was conned out of admission to see it
Absolute garbage. Those actors should be ashamed of the performances they gave I was totally conned in to spend hard earned cash to see it.absolutely not academy award material.
Smart, great performances, and very funny. Soundtrack was good too!
Found it boring because I figured it out in the first 10 min. Good actors what a waste.
Do NOT waste your time or money!! Have no idea why this boring terrible movie is getting any nominations.
Hated the fast New Jersey nasal dialogue ,dragged on too long, sorry, not my kind off movie. Jennifer Lawrence however was brilliant , she held the movie together!
When scam is a business ... We see in this film, the life of professionals hustlers. We discover the traps where the honest people fall into. The mafia is well represented and the movie shows us that we cannot get out of a mafia clan. The moral of the story is that you do not get to make a fortune by not respecting the laws. This film shows the small story of an FBI agent who wanted to infiltrate a dangerous world for having a recognition in his profession as a police officer.
Well acted and good storyline. Surprised by the people who rated it as boring, probably to dumb to see the big ending that was coming.
This movie had it all, love, intrigue and drama. The acting was incredible, especially Amy Adams. It was her best picture yet.
Requires a bit of thought to enjoy so it's understandable why so many believe it is boring. Fine film.
Best movie I've seen all year.
It was OK. Too long. What's all the press about how great this movie is? It's a rental if anything.
We walked out, too mind boring
Didn't like it. Movie was too long and took too long to get to the point. Cut off 30-40 minutes and it might be a better movie. Did like the guy's acting in the movie but not the women. Should've had a better writer.
Excellent movie. Fun and entertaining.
I left the movie theatre in a nauseous state, it had been too long of time looking at the bad hair day every actor in this movie was having, except for the main actor which had been having an ongoing bad rug day throughout the entire span of the movie. Llewellyn Davis is a much better movie
A very excellent movie with alot of good actors and actresses. It kept your interest throughout.
S---L---0---W Amy ~Dull Jenniffer~Tried to hard~ Bale ~ Fab Combover
What a great movie, gets you thinking,keeps you on your toes. Excellent acting. Definitely worth the time and money.
Amy Adams shouldn't wear spandex.
Whoever said the leading ladies were sexy needs glasses -- what a moron!
Excellent movie! The leading ladies are incredibly sexy and worth seeing again.
Great acting. Bad movie. Plus I never did hear how the "ice fishing" story ended!
A good movie weakened by uninteresting and unattractive female leads. Wait for the video.
Jennifer ruined what could have been a great film. :(
what a rip, they had De Niro, and they chose to use Bale doing a cheap De Niro imprssion, instead of just letting De Niro do the part. Jennifer was the one shinning spot ( excellent caracter acting )
Excellent movie superb acting by everyone. Anyone who complains about Jennifer Lawrence or Amy Adams and there acting are just jealous of their great looks and incredible talent.
Top notch all the way!! Amazing performances by every member of the cast...no laggards here... and nifty story-line based on the real ABSCAM scam. Blows the vastly over-rated movies like Gravity out of the water! Mixture of crime drama and comedy/black comedy will satisfy all those with a craving to see a great movie.
If you have rated this movie less than a 3, you need to stick to slapstick comedy that requires no thinking. Amazing cast, wonderful dialogue.
Very long and boring in some parts. Jennifer Lawrence sucked in here. needed a shorter film time for the weak story line.
Too long and quite boring! Storyline is very weak. Very foul language. Poor costume design, especially for Amy Adams. Well acted, especially by Christian Bale and Bradley Cooper - both actors sported unique hairstyles! At best a rental (if there's nothing else!) - otherwise stay home, save your $11, and wash your hair. The theatre was empty before the credits finished - that says it all. PS No laughs - a few weak smirks though.
