Minus Redford and Newman, this sequel stood no chance of succeeding. It's identical to the original in plot and concept minus the fun and energy of its predecessor.

This movie should never have been made in the first place. Elephant shit.

One of the best Gleason movies of all time! Bar NONE!

The sequel to its '73 Best Picture winning predecessor is surprisingly better than what to expect when it's without the original cast especially the dynamic duo of Newman and Redford as there are remaining classical magic going around with the characters and the soundtrack. It's good as the first film with the same rating, but a different letter grade, meaning it's not better (it would be if all of the original cast returned). (B+)

(Full review coming soon)

lame sequel and a perfect example of a really shitty sequel

10 ans apres le legendaire premier opus, David S. Ward en a ecrit la suite avec une toute nouvelle equipe technique et un tout nouveau casting. Si le film reste toujours aussi sympathique, Jeremy Kagan ne peut reellement insuffler du neuf dans ce qui devient alors profondement ennuyeux. Jackie Gleason, Mac Davis et Karl Malden ont beau etre bons, rien ne parvient a donner un reel interet au film...

Sort-of sequel to THE STING retains the con artist idea but none of the charm of the original, and plays like a weak TV movie cash in.

Only the audience gets stung here. Does improve when the occasional attempts at slapstick laughs are dropped after an embarrassing opening 45 minutes. Whose bright idea was it to try to follow up Newman and Redford?

Worth it for Jackie Gleason.

Jackie Gleason steals the movie

Better than expected.

Impossible not to think of the original when watching this, a grave error to have different actors play roles identified with others, especially for Newman and Redford. Reaches too hard for comedic moments; it simply doesn't work.

After watching the original, had to see this one too. Storyline, Acting and Actors are okay, but IMHO not as good as the original movie! Of course, Teri Garr is a different story :) ... will have to check out her other movies!

Pretty good movie! I got hooked on it when it just started on HBO. Love the old style movies like this looks like the early 50's I enjoyed it.

I didn't like the first one, so I'll pass on this one.

Interesting only because Gleason is in it but also because you get to see Teri Garr grap Mac Davis's Willy.

Why was this movie made? Gleason & Davis are no Redford and Newman....
