A Piece of the Action / Uptown Saturday Night

A Piece of the Action / Uptown Saturday Night  

Large ViewLarge View

There are a handful of scenes in 'Uptown Saturday Night' that had me laughing almost uncontrollably. When a movie can produce even a few scenes that double you over, you can't help but recommend it. 'Uptown Saturday Night' is a buddy movie with Bill Cosby (sporting a hair-do from what appears to be Colonial times) and Sidney Portier. The two men go 'uptown' in pursuit of a winning lottery ticket and all sorts of mayhem ensue. What makes this team-up work is the almost opposites attract style both men bring to the role. Bill Cosby is a natural. He doesn't even look like he's trying and yet he always brings in a great comedic performance. Sidney turns on his almost supernatural charm and wins points on how hard he's trying. Together, the two make a great duo. The cast is a whos who of 70s entertainment, and it's fun to see people like Harry Belafonte drop the cool and go for laughs. -- I have to drop a star because of "A Piece of the Action" which is also a comedy, but not nearly as funny. Bill and Sidney are back, and working with troubled urban kids, and the result is a not-completely-successful mix of comedy and morality tale. The two try hard enough and that's part of the problem, they look like they are trying too hard in a movie that doesn't know whether to go for laughs or wrench at your heart. It's not bad ... it's just middle-of-the-road. But, importantly, this disc has 'Uptown Saturday Night' and that is more than enough reason to own this.
