Academy Award winner Sidney Poitier directs and stars with some of the funniest comic actors ever in this hilarious adventure about a couple of guys who sneak away from their wives for a little fun but get in way over their heads Uptown Saturday Night. When Steve (Poitier) and Wardell (Bill Cosby) drop by Madame Zenobia's underground after-hours nightclub for a little fun, the place is robbed. Wardell loses his craps winnings, but Steve loses a lottery ticket--that turns out to be the winning number. Now, two regular guys take on the head of the local criminal underworld (Harry Belafonte), a swindler congressman (Roscoe Lee Brown) and a dishonest private investigator (Richard Pryor) in a madcap quest to recover the winning ticket.

Very dated humor with youngish Cosby and Poitier...who directs OK.

...harmless enough, flimsy and almost forgettable entertainment but easy going down.
