"The Goldfinch", an adaptation of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of the same name, debuted over the weekend with $US2.6 million domestically. I don't know yet. "There are house fees and they have to tip out a lot of people on top of that, so the difference between a good and bad night might not necessarily be that a nice guy came in or a creep came in, but more about how much money you actually went home with". It was also the biggest opening ever for a live-action Lopez film, and had numbers comparable to co-star Constance Wu's hit "Crazy Rich Asians", whose long-term box office success could be a model for "Hustlers".
Before getting into the magnificence ofHustlers, it's important to take a moment to recognize a film that includes a star-studded cast of all women - and mainly women of color for that matter. "If Cardi took some acting lessons and shadowed me I'm sure that she would have played a better role for my character".
"I would say exes invited to wedding". They're living the high life until the 2008 economic collapse.
Beating the expectations, the film starringJennifer Lopez even exceeded its own production budget in the first three days of its release and gave a major boost to STX Entertainment, which produced the movie. Whether it's the iconic Juicy velour tracksuit or Destiny's bedazzled choker that reads "SEXY", it'll take you back to some great (and not-so-great) 2000s trends.
"The whole country is a strip club: you've got people throwing the money and you've got people doing the dance".
The critics also shared that Lopez's performance in the movie could get her a nod in the upcoming awards season. The critics have labeled it as "one of the best movies made on women" and is now "certified fresh" with 88 percent score on review site Rotten Tomatoes. This has made me wonder if she could or would do something more dramatic and heavy. This tension is the driving force of the film: We know only one can win in the end, but they are on the same level and we don't know who the victor will be.
Yet, after a certain point Hustlers maximizes the use out of Ramona, only to continue giving her screentime, when there are other girls that needed it. With fellow dancers Annabelle (Lili Reinhart) and Mercedes (Keke Palmer), Destiny and Ramona drug their marks and bring them to the club, fleecing their credit cards. Even though we're watching a barely contained Lopez and Wu writhe around on stage at times, we also witness the daily grind of it all, which makes Hustlers feel like a workplace dramedy at times. "This entire country is a strip club", says Ramona in the scandal's aftermath. She just completed a tour and there have been no announcements of another one starting between now and then.
We learned that Jennifer Lopez is definitely one of the top picks to headline the Super Bowl in 2020. "We're just valued for different things, men and women". The men won't complain because it's embarrassing to think you got so drunk that you forgot what a good time you had, and for a while the plan works...until it doesn't.
