I lucked into tickets for an American Hustle screening tonight and really enjoyed it. Christian Bale is awesome and I only realized it was him about 20 minutes into the movie. Amy Adams rocks the most amazing slit down the front wardrobe by Gucci, and Bradley Cooper is great as the psycho FBI officer. Jennifer Lawrence is outstanding as a mega passive aggressive tootsie girl wife. There will probably be an oscar in this somewhere, for someone.
The plot wavers a bit here and there but it all works in the end.
What a nightmare setup for a screening. We had to wait what seemed to be an extra hour while they took away everyone's mobile phone and other electronic devices and even some guy's knapsack full of beer. Then everyone was frisked with metal detector wands before being let into the theatre. WTF!?
Then upon leaving, there was another 45 minutes while everyone lined up to get their phones back.
