No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Very dated humor with youngish Cosby and Poitier...who directs OK.
...harmless enough, flimsy and almost forgettable entertainment but easy going down.
An uproarious urban comedy that's sure to cater to the crowd. Poitier and Cosby make for a riotous duo in this flipppant farce.
Great buddy chemistry between Cosby and Poitier make this a 70's classic.
