After the box-office success of this picture, the film's principals, director Sidney Poitier and actors Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor were meant to re-team for Hanky Panky. That movie re-teamed star Wilder and Poitier for their second and final collaboration. It was suppose to be another Wilder/Pryor teaming, but Pryor didn't do the film. According to 'DVD Verdict', "For some reason, Pryor backed out and his part was rewritten into a female lead, for...Gilda Radner". See more »

This filthy, roach-ridden reality is inspiring... what did that second policeman say to you when he grabbed you by the throat?
Man, I don't fucking believe you!
"Man, I don't fucking believe you!" Fabulous!
You don't get it do you, Skip. You think this is The Count Of Monte Cristo or something. We're in deep trouble. This is the real deal. We're in deep shit.

All right collaboration movie for Gene Wilder and Richard Pyor.
This film was okay and mildly amusing, however I prefer "See No Evil, Hear No Evil" and "Silver Streak" as far as movies I have seen with both of them in it. This one just seems like it could have been really funny, but it simply took the wrong direction for my tastes. The movie is about two men who do a little act at a local bank. They perform this act while wearing bird costumes and they really entertain the crowd. Unfortunately, two other men dressed exactly the same go into the bank and proceed to rob it. Of course, Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder's characters get the blame and proceed to have a super fast trial and are sent to prison. Soon after they arrive Gene's character gets on a mechanical bull and the whole film takes the wrong turn. I so would have rather seen these two innocent men adjusting to prison life rather than having the whole prison rodeo thing. Not saying it was bad, just not what I expected. There are some funny scenes as the warden does things to try and make Gene's character agree to ride during this rodeo, but Gene tries to hold out so he can make a few demands of his own so that he and his prison buds can plan an escape. Like I said some humor in the film, but I think it could have been much better.
