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.

An uproarious urban comedy that's sure to cater to the crowd. Poitier and Cosby make for a riotous...

Great buddy chemistry between Cosby and Poitier make this a 70's classic.
