Lame, chase comedy
21 July 2002 | by (Evansville, Indiana USA) – See all my reviews

1st watched 7/21/2002 - 2 out of 10(Dir-William Webb): Lame, chase comedy with pretty flat performances from pretty much everyone except Franki Valli, who does an ok job as a mobster boss. The storyline involves a bag of mistakenly misplaced "Dirty Laundry"(hence the title) with 1 million dollars in drug money and our hero just happens to have the bag of money. He is chased, and chased, and chased until the movie finally ends. I'm actually pretty proud of myself for making it to the end of this one without dozing despite the boring plot. Skip this one if at all possible
