The best gags pop up in the closing credits, which should tell you something about what precedes the finale.
Even the audience at the free promotional screening was hard-pressed to find many genuine laughs in this purportedly comic abomination.
Unfortunately, most of the jokes just aren't very funny.
A mind- numbingly awful motion picture that has a better chance of making a viewer physically ill than of provoking a genuine laugh.
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.
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.
I'd say it's worth a rent.
This film is strictly hit and miss.
The rest of the cast doesn't look like it's having nearly as much fun as Nielsen is, but they are all exceedingly game and that's all that matters in these movies.
Wait for the end credits -- the mindless nonsense interspersed between the cast and crew lists is off the wall.
With the recent passing of comedy legend Leslie Nielsen, I felt it a high time to honor his memory by revisiting some of his movies. Starting off with Wrongfully Accused, I was yet again reminded of the brilliance he brought to his every performance. Always spot-on and with perfect dead-pan delivery. This may not be one of his best films, but it's a lot funnier than the critics have made it out to be. Yes, many of the jokes miss the mark, but Nielsen more than makes up for all of that. The gags come at you at super-sonic speed and you never know what's next around the corner. An entertaining cocktail of slap-stick and pure wittyness. So don't let the bad ratings scare you off. Because altough falling short of comedy gold, it's still a helluva lot better than the spoof movies they make nowadays.
R.I.P. Leslie Nielsen. Thank you for all the great laughs that you gave to the world. You will always be remembered as one of the great kings of comedy.
If you're looking for a cerebral workout, then you are in the wrong place but since "The Fugitive" is one of my all-time favorite movies, this one was fun and enjoyable for me to watch. The movie was laugh-out-loud funny with tons of sexual innuendos. Spoofing The Fugitive, Leslie Nielsen takes us on a wild ride that combines Mission Impossible, Braveheart and The Titantic and has enough quick, witty gags to make you split your sides. All in all, if you haven't seen this movie before, see it soon.
I didn't like "The Fugitive", and I liked this movie even less.
