Wrongfully Accused


(out of 5)

This one’s bad even by ‘s standards. You’ll get way more laughs out of repeat viewings of The Naked Gun movies before you’ll chuckle watching this spoof of The Fugitive starring Nielsen in the Harrison Ford role. He plays a sex symbol violinist who is wrongfully accused and convicted of murdering the man whose wife (, hate her because she’s still beautiful) he almost had a full blown affair with. After escaping a death sentence, he travels the country searching for the one-armed, one-legged, one-eyed man in an effort to clear his name. The characters are painfully bland, and though Nielsen gives it his all there’s no denying that the jokes are incredibly tired.  is abused in a tiny role that doesn’t allow her any room to show off her terrific sense of humour.
