The choir music alone took my breath away. Bill Cosby is at his best playing a dude "from off the corners", and Sidney Poitier as the straight man. Hilarious!!!!! Harry Belafonte and Calvin Lockhart were outstanding also. I noticed how there was no real violence. In the scene in the warehouse with Geechie Dan and his cronies, no never really get the sense that that they will blow these two away. Also, one of the funniest scenes happens at that warehouse when the thugs attempt to take Cosby and Poitier out to kill them and they resist, for a lack of a better word. Funny as hell!
Do you know something we don't?
