Critic Reviews for Three Fugitives

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (1)

Violence and profanity in unfunny, dated '80s comedy.

November 25, 2014 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Sweet, Silly and Satisfying..

September 5, 2008 | Rating: 3/5 irredeemably uneven piece of work...

March 8, 2007 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Interesting now only as a better-forgotten relic of a time in which people actually paid full-ticket price to see Martin Short in a movie.

Audience Reviews for Three Fugitives

The style of Francis Veber is nice, could be better and Nolte again, does the 'rude bad guy' but still Martin Short make Three Fugitives an entertaining and sweet film.
