A fictional film set in the alluring world of one of the most stunning scandals to rock our nation, American Hustle tells the story of brilliant con man Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale), who along with his equally cunning and seductive British partner Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams) is forced to work for a wild FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper). DiMaso pushes them into a world of Jersey powerbrokers and mafia that's as dangerous as it is enchanting. Jeremy Renner is Carmine Polito, the passionate, volatile, New Jersey political operator caught between the con-artists and Feds. Irving's unpredictable wife Rosalyn (Jennifer Lawrence) could be the one to pull the thread that brings the entire world crashing down.Written by

What are you doing, going behind my back? Telling people I'm screwing up this operation? I got you a suite at the fucking Plaza Hotel.
The shittiest suite at the Plaza Hotel.

The leaked Academy Awards DVDSCR had the following differences.
A line of alternate dialogue in a voice over.
A few digitally altered shots.
The scene where Irving and his wife arguing has been trimmed.
The scene immediately following that scene with Irving in the car is shorter as well.
What's so great about this film? And why have most of the cast been nominated for awards?
Is it because it has American in the title?
The costumes are decent, the wigs are good and the set is OK, but nothing special. So there's a few twists. Big deal, quite literally.
You feel nothing for any of the characters. Its slow, boring and NOT funny.
Amy Adams, I'm not a fan of hers, ever since watching the appalling Leap Year it put me off for life. In AH she struggles with her accents and puts in one of the most average performance you'll ever likely to see. Yet she's up for an Oscar, can someone please explain why?
We walked out of the cinema and had instantly forgot this film. That really speaks volumes in my book
