Funnyman Martin Short plays an inept, klutzy bank robber who, on his first heist, grabs Nick Nolte as a hostage. Nolte plays a notorious ex-con who is trying to go straight, so naturally, no one believes he's innocent or Short guilty, forcing the mismatched pair to become reluctant partners in crime. Add to the mix-up Short's adorable six-year-old daughter who desperately tries to keep this very odd couple together on a hilarious wheel-screeching run for the Canadian border! There's no escaping the laughter and miles of slapstick humor in this hilarious comedy!

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

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Three Fugitives is a 1989 action comedy starring Nick Nolte and Martin Short as a mismatched pair on the run from the police after a botched armed robbery and a case of mistaken identity. It's a 1980s movie formula -- two opposite characters that must work together -- that hasn't aged well, and the attempts at comedy frequently fall flat. There is frequent profanity -- Nolte's character has nicknamed Short's character "A--hole," for instance -- and there is frequent violence in the form of guns, fistfights, and car chases. Also, a van drives through the front of a dive bar, and a little girl runs into traffic.
