Newman & Redford

Paul Newman and Robert Redford are my two reasons for watching this. I don’t recall seeing such astonishing, mind-blowing performances.

The witty dialogue, the soundtrack, the themes of loyalty and deception are the other reasons.

Review of The Sting

The Sting is an ideal example of a fun, forgettable comedy. It's reasonably entertaining, it's pretty clever, and it's well acted. It's no masterpiece, and the twists and characters may feel overused now, but The Sting is still a decent way to spend 2 hours.

What they don't know is that the man they conned is the courier for a numbers runner.

" Notes: Honestly, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should probably re-watch it at some point to make up my mind for good about the whole thing. The thing is that, before watching it, I really thought it looked awesome. I mean, 4 years after the really amazing 'Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid', George Roy Hill was making another movie starring once again Paul Newman and Robert Redford, this time about some con artists in the 30's.
