THROW OUT THE ANCHOR (1974) *

In this dreadful comedy that plays like a bad sitcom, a father takes his young daughter and teenage son on vacation to Florida where they buy a broken down old boat from a crusty drunken seaman. They get help refurbishing the boat from some locals and set sail. When some greedy politicians want to put a highway through their vacation spot, everyone comes together to save the day. The “ethnic” supporting characters (a Jewish lawyer, a black priest and an Indian cook) provide the painfully unfunny “comic” relief. Look fast for Phillip Baker Hall in a small role.
