The Sting

4

Scott Joplin's jaunty theme music and the almost irresistible reteaming of Newman and Redford, make this '30s set con-comedy almost as entertaining as Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid. It's hampered by George Roy Hill's self-conscious direction, which apes original caper movies of the era without giving us any reason to care for the characters, despite the actors' obvious charisma.
