American Hustle is great fun indeed. Well written, well acted, and chock full of glorious '70s music, objects and cultural references (e.g. how long has it been since you thought about Wayne Dyer?). Jennifer Lawrence impresses in particular, playing a character that could not be more different than the one she plays in the Hunger Games movies, and doing so convincingly.
The NYT likes it too.
