Car 54, Where Are You? ★ 1994 (PG-13)

Exceedingly lame remake of the exceedingly lame TV series, which ran for only two seasons, 1961-63. This time, Toody (Johansen) and Muldoon (McGinley) are protecting a mafia stool pigeon (Piven), while vampy Velma Velour (Drescher) sets her sights on Muldoon. Not many laughs and a waste of a talented cast. Sat on the shelf at Orion for three years (with good reason). 89m/C VHS, DVD . David Johansen, Fran Drescher, Rosie O'Donnell, John C. McGinley, Nipsey Russell, Al Lewis, Daniel Baldwin, Jeremy Piven; D: Bill Fishman; W: Ebbe Roe Smith, Erik Tarloff, Peter McCarthy, Peter Crabbe; M: Bernie Worrell, Pray for Rain. Golden Raspberries '94: Worst Support. Actress (O'Donnell).
