What parents need to know

Parents need to know that The Hustle is a gender-swapped remake of the 1988 comedy Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (which starred Michael Caine and Steve Martin). In this film, two con women (Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson) with different styles end up competing to see who can seduce and rob a tech billionaire (Alex Sharp). The loser has to leave town. This is the second film this year (after Ocean's 8) featuring Hathaway as a con. Expect plenty of sexual references, swearing, and physical comedy. Teen fans of Hathaway and Wilson will likely enjoy the competitive edge between these two funny women.
