Watch American Hustle online and enjoy a film featuring two con artists, Sydney, and Irving. The two are also romantically linked. As a result of working together, the scams that Rosenfeld has been running have become more lucrative. This is because with Sydney masquerading as a member of the English aristocracy, it is hard not to fall for anything they say.
While Irving is in love with Sydney, he does not want to dump Rosalyn, his wife. Rosalyn is histrionic and unstable and Irving fears doing so will make Rosalyn deny him contact with Irvingâ€™s adopted son, Danny. Irving also fears she could report him to the police as she has already threatened to do so.
Things take a different turn when Richie, an FBI agent, uncovers a loan scam being run by Sydney and Irving. Richie makes a deal with them whereby they will be let off the hook if they can help him set up four criminals. Sydney does not like the idea at all. Unlike Richie, she wants to sort out their problem by manipulating Richie. Though Richie has evidence proving that Sydney is pretending to be an English aristocrat, he is convinced that she is English.
To assist Richie, Irving has a friend masquerade as an Arab sheikh as part of a scheme to nab a corrupt politician, the first of four arrests under their deal.
In the meantime, Richie is developing romantic feelings for Sydney. This is just at the same time that Irvingâ€™s wife, Rosalyn, is beginning a liaison with a mafia operative. Richie, however, is the one who is about to unwittingly make the biggest mistake of his life by trusting such accomplished scammers.
