Robert Pastorelli has exchanged his Eldin overalls in Murphy Brown for an old leather jacket in double rush, but his comic persona remains the same: amiable lunkhead, cranky guy with a heart of gold. As Johnny Verona, he is the head of Double Rush, a Manhattan bicycle-messenger service whose headquarters look like a dank variation on the garage from Taxi. And like Taxi, the cast consists of a family-style group of screw-ups and screwballs. There are a number of talented actors here, including David Arquette as a spacey daredevil of a bicyclist, Adam Goldberg (Dazed and Confused) as a moody messenger, and Phil Leeds as a spry senior-citizen delivery boy. But for a project from Murphy Brown’s Diane English, Double Rush falls curiously flat, full of formulaic jokes. Pastorelli and the cast are charming, but the show needs many more solid laughs. C
