In an October 2019 interview with Backstage magazine, Constance Wu said this film isn't just important for women, it's something men with sexist attitudes have needed to see for a long time. "America likes to shame women for existing as anything other than child-bearers or sexual objects. That's why it's a good time for men: They finally get to see stories that don't do that. I think it's a really good time for men--not because of employment opportunities, but because they finally get to see stories they have been robbed of, stories that actually humanize women."

This city, this whole country, is a strip club. You've got people tossing the money, and people doing the dance.

Given that I read the article written by Jessica Pressler and seen the 20/20 The Hustler documentary, the movie left me unfilled. By any means not saying what these women did was right but three women hustling rich Wall Street men out of their money was fascinating but the way this movie was told was too hollywood. Here's what I thought was missing and didn't make sense. The 20/20 documentary gave me more insight than the movie. I had more respect for these women. They were like the wolf on Wall Street, three women hustling Wall Street men out of their credit cards. But watching the movie I didn't see that. There were good laughs here and there but I walked away without a complete story. This movie had too many big names and wasn't focusing on the storytelling. If this film had did more research and took more time, this could have been bigger than wolf on Wall Street. Their story was in a continuous loop of the crime rather than getting to the root of why it really started in the first place. Working at gentleman's club is not all glamours and these women don't go after their money because of the stock market crash. This film did not have a lot substance for me to want to see again. Second movie JLo has produce that I was disappointed.
