Tedious family film
5 January 2003 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

Apparently filmed for a pittance in Florida, this local production would be entirely unwatchable if not for the two name stars attached to it. Richard Egan was almost at the end of his career and looks unhappy and unhealthy, but Dina Merrill is as excellent as ever and looks fetching in a diving suit. Produced, written, and directed by John Hugh, the film is poorly lensed by DoP Robert Caramico, the genius behind the camera of A.C. Stephens' almost unwatchable Orgy of the Dead as well as Albert Zugsmith exploitationers like Psychopathia Sexualis. Throw Out the Anchor is a million miles from those films, though, as it tells a gentle tale of backwoods folks fighting the good fight against corporate polluters. What comedy there is--and it's not much--is supplied by folks falling in the water or dropping heavy objects in the water. Ha. Ha. The rest of the cast and crew are strictly amateur hour and most of them have few if any other credits to their names, though young Alison Arngrim went on to appear in the TV series Little House on the Prairie.
