Pat Proft directed this satire on The Fugitive with a plot parody of the 1993 Harrison Ford movie, which in turn was inspired by the 1963-67 ABC television series with David Janssen. Violinist Ryan Harrison (Leslie Nielsen) romances the wife (Kelly Le Brock) of his benefactor (Michael York), a man murdered by mercenaries. Naturally, Ryan gets blamed.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The best gags pop up in the closing credits, which should tell you something about what precedes the finale."
‑ Leonard Klady, Variety
"A mind- numbingly awful motion picture that has a better chance of making a viewer physically ill than of provoking a genuine laugh."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"An understandably tired-looking Leslie Nielsen should seriously consider retirement from this tired genre."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"This film is strictly hit and miss."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"The epitaph of the modern spoof."
‑ Rob Blackwelder, SPLICEDWire
"Even the audience at the free promotional screening was hard-pressed to find many genuine laughs in this purportedly comic abomination."
‑ John Haslett Cuff, Globe and Mail
"Unfortunately, most of the jokes just aren't very funny."
‑ Anita Gates, New York Times
"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."
‑ Eugene Novikov, Film Blather
"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."
‑ Barbara Shulgasser, San Francisco Examiner
"Amusing, perhaps, but really funny? No."
‑ Susan Granger, rec.arts.movies.reviews
"Beyond stupid."
‑ Peter Stack, San Francisco Chronicle
"There's something tired and rotten about this Fugitive send-up right from the start."
‑ Sandra Contreras, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"I'd say it's worth a rent."
‑ Kevin N. Laforest, Montreal Film Journal
"When a film critic starts throwing popcorn at the movie screen, something has to be wrong."
‑ David Keyes, Cinemaphile.org
"Ridiculously tired."
‑ Scott Renshaw, rec.arts.movies.reviews
