Constance Wu and Jennifer Lopez star in the new movie HUSTLERS as strippers in a Manhattan nightclub before and after the stock market crash in 2008. The acting in HUSTLERS is better than the film itself especially the performances of Constance Wu as a beginning exotic dancer and 50 year old Jennifer Lopez as her experienced mentor. This flashy entertainment is based on a true story about four strippers who are thriving before the 2008 recession as plenty of rich Wall Street types come into their club and spend lots of money on drinks, tips, and private sessions with the dancers. But it’s the scams the strippers run on men after the recession starts that give the film its drama.
