Shaka Lodge treasurer Billy (Bill Cosby) and his buddy Clyde (Sidney Poitier) hatch a foolproof scheme to fill the Lodge's nearly empty coffers by betting on a longshot fighter (Jimmie Walker) transformed into a champion via hypnotic suggestion. They pull it off without a hitch...until the local mob pays them a call. Comic heavyweights Cosby and Poitier (who also directs) do it again with this equally funny follow-up to their Uptown Saturday Night triumph. Again, they're ringed by talent, from co-stars Ossie Davis, Calvin Lockhart, John Amos and Julius Harris to a winning Curtis Mayfield score with songs performed by the Staple Singers. It's an entertainment wallop: without a doubt you'll shout Let's Do It Again!
