Trivia

This movie was one of two sequels that Jackie Gleason starred in and were released during 1983 which were both plagued by not featuring original cast members. Smokey and the Bandit Part 3 (1983) did not star Burt Reynolds and Sally Field whilst The Sting II (1983) did not star Robert Redford and Paul Newman. See more »

Goofs

The Coney Island Roller Coaster train is made of fiberglass, not wood, as a 1940s coaster train would be. Fiberglass was introduced commercially in 1936, but it was used mostly as insulation. It wasn't used for applications like roller coasters until well into the 1950's. See more »

What Did We Ever Do to Hollywood?
26 April 2007 | by inspectors71See all my reviews

I can't figure out how I made Hollywood so angry that it created The Sting 2, an anti-Sting, unfunny, dull, mouth-breathingly stupid. I actually made the free-will choice to see this trash at a drive-in theatre. I'd say it was back in my drinking days, but I'm not an alcoholic. Go figure.

The good performers looked embarrassed and the non-actors looked like . . . non-actors. I guess the movie got the green light because somebody's nephew worked in the Universal props and wardrobe department, and needed work to justify his continued employment.

I hope the putz got fired anyway.

I sat through this bilge in a noisy thunderstorm. I could barely see the screen and the sound was overwhelmed by the crashboombang of the storm.

In other words, I knew the movie was there, but I missed big chunks of it due to the rain and lightning.

Thank you Mother Nature.
