03.02.07Netflix This time around, Poitier seems to have the power to hypnotize people... which comes in handy when their not-quite-culty fraternal order needs money for a new building. So they head down to New Orleans (or, over i guess, since they're in Atlanta) and hypnotically amp up boxing challenger Jimmie Walker to unleash his inner tiger and win the title fight.

And that's like the first half of the movie. This was really like watching Ocean's Eleven and Ocean's Twelve together because the whole second half is aftermath from the first half (hope that doesn't give too much away). Not only is Cosby and Poitier great (Poitier playing the straight man to Cosby's bigger performance (and wardrobe)) but Calvin Lockhart and John Amos were also great as competing bookies.

I liked this one for pretty much the same reasons as Uptown Saturday Night. While this one had a bit more The Sting influence, it's still just as fun with a really great Curtis Mayfield score. it's already late though and I want to fit the last one in before I pass out so...
