Chu Chu & the Philly Flash woof! 1981 (PG)

A has been baseball player and a lame dance teacher meet while hustling the same corner; he sells hot watches, she's a onewoman band. A briefcase full of government secrets soon involves them with the feds, the mob, and a motley collection of backalley bums. Insipid comedy is actually worse than its title, with Burnett and Arkin both trying too hard. Supporters Warden, Aiello, and Glover don't help either. 102m/C VHS . Alan Arkin, Carol Burnett, Jack Warden, Danny Aiello, Ruth Buzzi, Danny Glover, Lou Jacobi; D: David Lowell Rich; W: Barbara Dana.
