Storyline

Clyde Williams and Billy Foster are a couple of blue-collar workers in Atlanta who have promised to raise funds for their fraternal order, the Brothers and Sisters of Shaka. However, their method for raising the money involves travelling to New Orleans and rigging a boxing match. Using hypnotism, they turn the scrawny underdog into a super-confident fighting machine. They bet heavily on him, he wins easily, and they return to Atlanta with their money. All is fine until the gangsters conned by these two figure out what happened show up in Atlanta with a grudge. Now Williams and Foster have to rig the fight again so the gangsters can get their money back or they'll be killed. Can they do it again...? Written by Afterburner <aburner@erols.com>

Funny then , funny now
12 January 2008 | by (Vancouver,Canada) – See all my reviews

I hadn't seen this movie since it came out. It was a pleasant and very funny surprise then and it still is. As others have said it's Bill Cosby's movie and he makes the most of it. Portier shows a somewhat more annoying side to his personality, doing more than his fair share of mugging but that and the cliché gangster/boxer motif aside or perhaps because of it this movie is very very funny. Jimmy J.J. Walker steals the movie as a very unlikely middleweight boxer. Denise Nicholas is beautiful and sexy and there's a score that could be sampled to death to make a new funky soundtrack for a party. I don't understand the low rating but then comedies generally get lower ratings for some reason.But don't let that discourage you. My general criteria for a comedy is if it makes me laugh out loud on at least three occasions then it gets an automatic 7. I give this one an 8.
