Trivia

Paul Newman and Robert Redford who played Henry Gondorff and Johnny Hooker in The Sting (1973) do not reprise their roles in this sequel. To fill their shoes, Jackie Gleason and Mac Davis played Fargo Gondorff and Jake Hooker. They are however, despite having similar names and the same surnames, not the same characters from the original movie. See more »

Goofs

Both times that Hooker rides the Coney Island roller coaster, his cap stays neatly in place, on his head, for the entire ride. In reality, that type of coaster can reach speeds of 60-70mph. His cap should've blown off during the first drop. See more »

Good but not a "Classic"
17 October 1998 | by See all my reviews

Good acting. Good story, but a little confusing at times. Very good photography. Too true of the dark side to be funny. No laughs, but none desired (I presume).
