Title: Chee Whiz*
Theme: The sound “chee” is at the end of one of the words in the theme answers thereby making familiar phrases silly.

*I somehow managed not to notice that my printed hard copy had no title. I only realized it was missing when I checked my finished puzzle with Rex Parker. Based on his comments section, it was only missing in printed hard copies.
I’m giving myself a little proverbial pat on the back for figuring out the theme without knowing the title. Not that it was terribly difficult to figure out. The first theme answer I filled in was 97-Across (Tucci), shortly followed by 107-Across (Archie).
A few other interesting answers:
69A. “Absalom and Achitophel” poet. Answer: Dryden. While I’m familiar with some of Dryden’s works, I don’t know this one.
118A. “Less Than Zero” author. Answer: Ellis (Brett Easton). I’ve heard of him but am not familiar with this novel which (via Wiki) was made into a movie.
47D. Loser to Pierce in 1852. Answer: Scott (Winfield). Scott was the Republican candidate against President Franklin Piece (Democrat) running for a second term.
