Oliver Reed and Karl Malden are welcome presences, and Teri Garr is the winner on all feminine counts, but this isn't enough to save it.

A clumsy counterfeit that is a real-life con game involving the ticket buyer.

Moves slowly, looks terrible and copies the first film shamelessly. Rather than a sequel, it's a retread, with David S. Ward's screenplay supplying hoodlum lingo you could cut with a knife and outlining a set of similar shenanigans.

First time round, if you got bored with the endlessly twisting convolutions of the scam, there were compensations in the fancifully nostalgic settings and the host of quirky minor characters. This time you stay bored.

The film was scripted by David S. Ward, who also wrote the original but added nothing new or special to this sequel.

So much of the intricate plot is explained in dialog that the first half of the film often seems like someone reading an instruction book.
