I could be way off base, I'm no professional movie critic, but I thought American Hustle wasn't that great at all. The movie never pulled me in. I felt like it was all about the image and lacked with story. Plus, I feel like I've seen that movie before with all the other 70's/80's hustler/gangster/mafia movies that have been made through the years. It had its moments though. It's worth a watch, but I don't plan on watching it again anytime soon.
