Movie Review: American Hustle

I went to see the movie American Hustle so, as a service to my many readers, I am going to do a movie review so you can decide if you want to see it. This movie stars Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, and Jennifer Lawrence. By the way, since surnames are often derived from the place an ancestor lived or their profession, are we to assume that Christian Bale's ancestors were bales of hay? Isn't it nice to see someone become such a gifted actor when his ancestors were nothing more than food for horses and cows, and bedding for other animals? I bet his were the ones who became Halloween decorations which would explain his flair for drama! Anywho, back to the subject at paw. This movie is about a couple of con artists who end up pulling a major con for the FBI. I can't tell you if it was successful or not, because that could spoil the movie for those who haven't yet seen it. However, I can tell you that the music was good, and it was from the era of the 70's. Jennifer Lawrence played the role of a crazy bitch well. It was nice to see her in a different role from the one she played in The Hunger Games. Now she won't just be typecast as a woman who likes to shoot arrows in action movies to roles where she can play someone who is psycho. Isn't that the dream of most actresses? This is an enjoyable movie which I give 4 paws up, a bunch of doggy kisses, a tail wag, and some doggy treats (but not dingo bones--they are set aside for unusually good movies). This movie would get a 7 1/2 out of 10 on the human movie scale. I would recommend it for a fun day at the movies. Demon Flash Bandit (Movie Critic)
