I was so happy that I went to see American Hustle this week.
American Hustle is loosely based on the Abscam Scandal of the 70's but the movie is really about characters played by the unrecognizable Bradley Cooper (with a perm), Christian Bale (fat and bald), Jeremy Renner (with a toupee) and fabulous Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence rocking over-the top 70's hair and wardrobe.
The writing and acting is great. I was throughly entertained for all 138 minutes.
I'd highly recommend it. It is funny and serious and smart. If you liked Argo, you'll love it.
