Storyline

On his first day after being released from jail for 14 armed bank robberies, Lucas finds himself caught up in someone else's robbery. Perry has decided to hold up the local bank to raise money so that he can keep his daughter, Meg, and get her the treatment she needs. Dugan, a detective, assumes Lucas helped plan the robbery, and hence Lucas, Perry and Meg become three fugitives. Written by Rob Hartill

Three Fugitives is an excellent comedy movie
29 June 2004 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

This movie is just great, its really funny & original for its time. Martin Short & Nick Nolte really make this movie work, I would say this is Martin Shorts best role in a movie where he's actually really hilarious throughout the movie. The casting for this movie is also good too, movie keeps traveling at a fairly consistent pace. In my own opinion this is a great family comedy movie. Its extremely funny & touching all at the same time, I recommend this to all comedy movie lovers, the bank scene is just simply hilarious. This is my favourite Nick Nolte movie, i haven't seen too many of his movies but his acting was great in this movie. I give this 8.5/10 for being a very under estimated movie.
