About the Movie
To give some insight into the movie and how it uses the word ‘hustler’, it is all about a group of former stripped looking to make more money and plotting to get it from the men they’ve been spending time with. The men don’t seem to be particularly bothered about the girls’ plights and situations and spend more time splashing the cash and partying, so the ex-strippers decide they are perfect for providing them with the money they want. The movie is set to be a big hit with famous names such as Jennifer Lopez,Cardi B, and Constance Wu among others.
In addition to stirring up excitement among movie fans, the film has also fueled interest into what a hustler actually is. Many people will have heard the word used in different contexts and situations as well as by different people. You hear about people pretending to be bad at playing pool and then playing for big money and suddenly demonstrating their expertise so they can take the cash. You see people on the streets who describe themselves as hustlers. It is a term that is often used to describe someone that cheats their way to making money from others.
Of course, another way in which many people will have heard the word ‘hustler’ is in the context of the online HUSTLER® Hollywood brand. Founded in the late 1960s as a brand, the adult magazine was launched in the mid-1970s and has now expanded to include its adult online store where people can buy adult toys, lingerie, and a range of related products.
Many people do not realize that this word does go back many centuries. In fact, in the 1600s the word was used to describe a movement that involved shaking. In the 1800s, it began to be used as a term to describe fast movement – for instance, the term hustle-bustle, which many still use today. In modern society, it is often used as a term for having the confidence to make money – and not always in the most respectable ways!
