If and when you go see it, don't go in with an expectation of seeing something cinematically superior, but do expect a good time.

Wait for the end credits -- the mindless nonsense interspersed between the cast and crew lists is off the wall.

An entertaining burlesque of The Fugitive. Sit down (watch out for that whoopee cushion!) and enjoy the latest Hollywood sendup of films immemorial.

No one will remember Wrongfully Accused in a year, but...Nielsen has assured himself a place in comic history.

No, Wrongfully Accused is not fall-down funny, but it offers some riotous moments.

The best gags pop up in the closing credits, which should tell you something about what precedes the finale.

There's something tired and rotten about this Fugitive send-up right from the start.

An understandably tired-looking Leslie Nielsen should seriously consider retirement from this tired genre.

Even the audience at the free promotional screening was hard-pressed to find many genuine laughs in this purportedly comic abomination.

A mind- numbingly awful motion picture that has a better chance of making a viewer physically ill than of provoking a genuine laugh.

Clearly, Pat Proft was wearing too many hats, and both his writing and his directing suffered for it.
