Let’s Do It Again « Martin Teller’s Movie Reviews
martinteller.wordpress.comAt the local chapter of their Atlanta lodge/fraternity, Clyde Williams (Sidney Poitier) is the vice marshal and Billy Foster (Bill Cosby) is the treasurer. Their lodge is due to be demolished, and there aren’t enough funds on hand to start construction on a new one. They hatch a scheme to head for New Orleans, hypnotize a hopeless boxer named Bootney Farnsworth (Jimmie Walker) and bet big dollars on him to win. But they’re playing with fire when they try to pull a fast one on warring bookies Biggie Smalls (Calvin Lockhart) and Kansas City Mack (John Amos).

Let’s do it again, indeed. Poitier is following pretty much the exact same formula he used the year before in Uptown Saturday Night. Two working class guys (even their jobs are roughly the same… steel worker and cabbie vs. factory worker and delivery driver) trying to make some fast money and getting in over their heads with duelling criminals. A series of comical close calls with our heroes surviving by their quick wits.
