wonderful rejection of black stereotypes
with this little movie, Poitier and Cosby manage to elude the traditional stereotypes of black comedies and the blacksploitation films. rather than laughing AT the characters, we are laughing at the situations and their reactions.
i also heard that Marlon Brando laughed out loud at the gangster parody of his Godfather role. me? i couldn’t stop laughing throughout the film. madcap and absurd, this movie has several memorable sequences and conversations.
i don’t know why this film is not more widely known. it plays with film convention, parodies everything from Godfather to hard-boiled detective movies, and all the while maintains an inspired sense of humor mixed with stand-up and vaudeville influences.
Lots of movement, not a lot of laughs
I didn’t think this was a very funny film, but that just could be my own sense of humor working not working]. I did find it to be an entertaining time, however. The acting was good, the story was well done, and I even got a chuckle or two out of it. 2 stars.
