Three Fugitives (1989)

This a Covid-19 2020 minireview!

“I’m the hostage!” – Lucas

Number of Times Seen – At least twice (Cable in the 80’s and 10 Aug 2020)

Brief Synopsis – After a thief is released from prison, he is taken hostage by a bank robber who needs money to help his young daughter.

Bottom Line – Fun crime comedy that is enhanced by the performances of Nick Nolte and Martin Short. The plot gets a bit silly along the way, but since the chemistry between these characters is so great, it still makes things enjoyable to watch unfold. The antics that these characters use throughout the film are quite clever and help keep things more engaging and fun to take in. James Earl Jones is great as a detective who thinks Nolte’s character is responsible for the new bank robbery and chases them in order to try and capture Nolte and put him back behind bars.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – The character Meg is mute for most of the movie. James Earl Jones, who plays Dugan, was functionally mute for eight years until he reached high school. (From IMDB)

Rating – BAFTA Worthy (6/10)
