I've seen this movie along with Uptown Saturday Night countless times and, this one being the better of the two, and I still crack up. Bill & Sidney are great together and it's a shame they haven't collaborated since the 70's.
Jimmy Walker is simply "down right NAYISTEE!! with laughs".
I'm waiting for the DVD.
