Working man Steve Jackson thinks he's hit the jackpot. He and his pal Wardell Franklin are living it up at Madame Zenobia's, the poshest after-hours in club in town. They're having a great time - until masked bandits relieve all Madame's guests of their valuables. Safely home, Steve picks up the newspaper and reads that he really has hit the jackpot. His lottery ticket is worth $50,000.

But the ticket is in his wallet. And his wallet is with the thieves.

Uptown Saturday Night is a buoyant, bang up comedy starring some of the most uptown talents in movies. Academy Award® winner Sidney Poitier and Emmy Award winner Bill Cosby play Steve and Wardell, who scramble through a rogue's gallery of gangsters, con men and babes in pursuit of the missing ticket. Richard Pryor is fumbling detective Sharp Eye Washington, who always tells a lie. Flip Wilson is the Reverend, whose "loose lips" sermon will convert the sourest sourpuss. Roscoe Lee Browne is all front and no backbone as an oily politician. And Harry Belafonte does a priceless Godfather spoof, cotton-packed jowls and all, as mob kingpin Geechie Dan Beauford.
