“Made-For-TV Movies” Crossword by Joon Pahk and Jeremy Horwitz
Edited by Will Shortz

Having seen only two of the films and none of the television programs utilized in the seven long answers of this strugglesome Sunday crossword, there’s little to say, especially with many of the clues for the down answers being of scant help in a rather clumsy solve.  The seven:

TAXI STAND BY ME (23A. TV movie about … where I can easily get a cab?)
OUT HOUSE IN AFRICA (30A. … where to go in Togo?)
THREE CHEERS AMIGOS (47A. … a Hispanic “hip hip hooray”?)
SAY ANYTHING MONK (62A … trying to get a friar to violate his vow of silence?)
BREAKFAST GLEE CLUB (83A. … a singing group that meets for bacon and eggs?)
COOL HAND SOAP LUKE (97A. … Skywalker’s trendy hygiene products?)
GET LOST SHORTY (111A. … giving a pipsqueak the brush-off?)
