| Cosby/Portier 3
Cosby and Portier team up for a third time. This time they are successful criminals that have done very well for themselves... but it didn't go unnoticed. In fact, they are blackmailed into helping underserved youth as a means of atonement.

Just like Uptown Saturday Night and Let's Do it Again, this was also cleverly written. In fact this movie was probably better than the prior movies in that there was an element of positivity in it. The challenge of helping the group of young African-Americans looking for employment was a nice positive feature. They took the challenge-with little choice in the matter-and were very creative in motivating the youth towards something different and better than what they were upon. This movie was as inspiring as it was fun.
