    "Hustlers" is based on a newspaper article about strippers hustling the men from Wall Street thru stealing by drugging them during the Great Recession. This is probably one of the most sexist film I've seen in years. So if the "Magic Mike" characters do these to their clients, they're portrayed negatively and go straight to jail but the dreadful shallow characters of Hustlers were justified and celebrated?! This isn't women empowerment! Absolutely no emotional connection or sympathy towards shameless promotion of criminal behavior. Movie's repetitive and overhyped with praises of Oscar-buzz for J Lo. (Her first sequence was the sexiest musical performance in a stripper role, ever!) Abangan sila Lizzo, G Eazy, Usher at Cardi B (who was a real-life stripper before becoming a rapper).
