Product Description:

A PIECE OF THE ACTION: Sidney Poitier and Bill Cosby are two slick con men who are talked into helping out a group of troubled teens at a community center. James Earl Jones is the ex-cop who tricks the two into doing a good deed.

UPTOWN SATURDAY NIGHT: Blue-collar buddies Steve (Sidney Poitier) and Wardell (Bill Cosby) decide to hang out at an illicit gambling joint one Saturday night. But they lose their shirts (literally) when robbers force them and everyone else to strip and give up their valuables. As if that weren't bad enough, Steve makes a frightening discovery after the crime: inside his stolen wallet was a winning lottery ticket worth $50,000! The horrified duo hire a bumbling detective and set out to find the crooks. During their wild adventure they encounter a number of odd characters, including two rival gang lords--one of whom is responsible for the gambling house robbery....
