Goofs

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. See more »

Hilarious movie...

..."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.
