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
Based on the 1986 French film with Gerard Depardieu & Pierre Richard. See more »
When Lucas gets off the ferry and sees Dugan from around 100 yards away while heading towards him, you can see two young men going by when the camera pans on Dugan, but as as Lucas approaches and gets really close up to Dugan, you can see those same two men going by. By now, they should have been some way away and not in the shot. And again, on the next shot, you can see them from back, with inverted positions. See more »
..."Three Fugitives" is an action comedy about an ex-con (Nick Nolte) who - on his first day out of prison - is taken hostage by a neurotic father (Martin Short). The two are taken - along with Short's daughter (Sarah Rowland Doroff) - on a long journey full of laughs and excitement.
Nick Nolte is probably not the greatest actor for comedies, but he still delivers well. Short is obviously hilarious, as he is most of the time, and Doroff is as good as she could be. James Earl Jones and Alan Ruck also make funny appearances.
The only really annoying part about "Three Fugitives" is the constant use of eighties guitar music in the background. That is probably the worst sounding noise in history.
Funny family movie (despite a few cuss-words), 7/10.
