News & Interviews for Uptown Saturday Night
Critic Reviews for Uptown Saturday Night
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.
Audience Reviews for Uptown Saturday Night
This was a movie that I had always heard of but had no idea what it was about, so I was very charmed by the idea of two middle class guys trying to track down whoever robbed an illegal nightclub when they realize there's a winning lotto ticket in one of their wallets. Great stuff, a fun blend of humor and drama.
Not as good as "Let's Do It Again", but has its moments.
Something about Bill Cosby picking a fight makes me laugh.
