THE ELECTRIC CHAIR, LETHAL INJECTION, FIRING SQUAD. THOSE AWAIT RYAN HARRISON AFTER HE'S WRONGFULLY ACCUSED AND SENTENCED TODEATH BUFFET STYLE. SIGHT GAGS, WORD PLAYS, PARODIES. THOSE AWAIT COMEDY FANS WHEN HARRISON ESCAPES AND GOES ON THE LAM FUGITIVE-STYLE IN THIS LOOPY LAUGHATHON.
With the success of There's Something About Mary, the brothers Farrelly would seem to have inherited the dumb-comedy crown from the various talents who made Airplane! and its many descendants: Top Secret!, The Naked Gun, Hot Shots!. For the most part, that's true, but as Wrongfully Accused proves, there's a bit of life in the old shtick. Pat Proft, a screenwriter on The Naked Gun series and Hot Shots!, makes his directorial debut with this farce, which stars--surprise, surprise--Leslie Nielsen in a parody of the feature version of The Fugitive. More than that: Proft piles on joking references to a host of other dramas, including Casablanca, Mission: Impossible, and Braveheart. While the persistence of these inter-movie gags can wear a viewer down a bit, the fact is some of the silly stuff really does hit its target. If the progeny of Airplane! were to end with this movie, it would be a worthy way to say farewell to a once-good idea. The DVD includes trailers, a game, Dolby, audiovisual production notes, cast interviews, biographies and filmographies, English and French soundtracks, and English, French, and Spanish subtitles. With Kelly LeBrock, Richard Crenna, Sandra Bernhard, and Michael York. --Tom Keogh

But honestly, it's dated and really really stupid.
There are a FEW....just a FEW....laughs, but most of it is toilet humor, sex humor and just done in a way that might have been funny if you watched it while intoxicated.
I'm glad I paid for a used version just to see it. That way, I'm not out much money.
I personally LOVE this movie. I think it's hilarious from start to finish. The only catch is that you have to be a big fan of Leslie Nielson's type of humor. If you don't like Leslie Nielson, you most definitely won't like this film.
I like the fact that the humor in this movie is "clean and simple". It can make you laugh (crack up in my case) without the use of vulgar language.
