Comparing anything that isn't actual slavery to slavery is pretty tasteless and generally a really bad idea. Comparing a rich and successful actor's career to slavery is, well, a really bad idea. But, that's exactly what director David O. Russell did, saying Jennifer Lawrence's 'Hunger Games' contract is just like "slavery."

David O. Russell's 1999 film, 'Three Kings,' starred the awesome trio of George Clooney, Mark Wahlberg and Ice Cube, and told the story of three soldiers who planned a gold heist during the 1991 Iraqi uprising at the end of the Persian Gulf War -- but things don't quite go as planned. With Russell's 'American Hustle' and Wahlberg's new war movie, 'Lone Survivor,' currently in theaters, and Clooney about to release his 'Monuments Men' in February, we revisit the cast of this acclaimed satirical hit 14 years later and see what they're up to now.

Critics may debate whether 'American Hustle' is good or great (and they are), but one thing even the toughest critic of David O. Russell's 70s crime epic can agree on: the performances are outstanding. Across the board, the likes of Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Jeremy Renner and even Louis CK deliver some of their best work; work that is sure to be recognized this Oscar season.

There is so much hair in 'American Hustle.'
Christian Bale's disastrous comb-over/rug combo basically opens the film with a wordless monologue. Beneath that unnatural mop is the sharp mind of Irving Rosenfeld, a “from the feet up” con man making the leap from running legit (but boring) dry cleaning businesses to grifting down-on-their-luck rubes on bad bank loans. His operation starts taking off when he hooks up with Amy Adams, a natural businesswoman looking to reinvent herself. She does this with a name change, a phony British accent and, later in the film, by frizzing her hair out to preposterous proportions.

Jennifer Lawrence gave an incredible performance in David O. Russell's 'Silver Linings Playbook,' ultimately winning her the Oscar for Best Actress. From the looks of 'American Hustle,' Russell's follow-up, she might just have another award under her belt.

We were already excited to see 'American Hustle' because it's the latest film from the always-interesting David O. Russell and because it has one of the strongest ensembles in recent memory. But now, with the release of two new images, we're really excited to see it because it apparently pulls no punches when it comes to completely '80s-ifying stars Christian Bale, Amy Adams and Bradley Cooper. They look ludicrous...and also kind of awesome.
