Those three are only the main reasons why American Hustle is going to kick The Great Gatsby’s Ärschle (transl. swabian: ass):
1. Christian Bale
2. It’s The Great Gatsby without the ballet and stuff
3. Christian Bale
Got two more though:
4. Bobby de Niro is in this movie
5. Louie C.K. is in this movie
One more…because my research for interesting stuff about this flick has been very rewarding indeed:
6. There Is a Scene in Which Jennifer Lawrence Sings “Live and Let Die”…
… while wearing yellow rubber gloves and an absolutely tremendous updo.
…according to vulture.
Storyline for American Hustle: 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.
