\"The Fugitive\" meets \"Airplane!\"
Ryan Harrison is a talented but quirky classical violinist. He is also
quite accident-prone: one member of the orchestra at his latest
performance in Minnesota wears a football helmet.
Terrorists want to kill U.N. Secretary-General Sir Robert McKintyre.
And while Ryan is at the home of Hibbing Goodhue, he is attacked by a
man with one arm, one leg, and one eye. When Ryan comes to, Hibbing is
dead and Ryan is holding the murder weapon.
We don't see the trial, but despite being "wrongfully accused", Ryan is
sentenced to death row. Fortunately, there is a sequence corresponding
to the train wreck in "The Fugitive". At first, it looks only slightly
more realistic than the bus jump in "Spice World"--and that's not
saying much. What happens next, though, is hilarious, and it works
better if you don't know what's coming.
The chase is on! Lt. Fergus Falls is the most brilliant and the most
thorough detective in the history of crime, with amazing technological
capabilities allowing him to find out anything and everything that
could be the least bit relevant to locating and arresting Ryan. But
will that be enough?
Some gags worked, while others did not. One gag that did work involved
a defaced wanted poster. I do remember so many hilarious moments in a
short period that I laughed until I cried. Fortunately, there was
relief from the rapid pace most of the time.
I think I would have enjoyed the movie more if I had seen more of the
movies being lampooned. "Mission: Impossible" was obvious--and the
security system in the scene was obviously designed by Jews. I also
noticed "Dirty Harry", "Titanic" and "Field of Dreams" were parodied.
Leslie Nielsen didn't quite achieve the masterful performances from the
"Airplane" and "Naked Gun" movies, but I enjoyed his work anyway. The
clever writing, of course, adds a lot to this type of film for which
Nielsen is best known.
Richard Crenna was no Tommy Lee Jones. I could tell he was spoofing the
"Fugitive" detective, but something seemed to be missing from his
Melinda McGraw looked good, and she gave a decent performance as well.
They can't all be "Airplane!" or "The Naked Gun" but I still had a good
