Product Description:

When an inept, klutzy bank robber who, on his first heist, grabs a tough, notorious ex-con aiming to go straight as a hostage, no one believes the con's innocence nor the robber's guilt. This forces the mismatched pair to become reluctant partners in crime and run for the border with the robber's 6-year-old daughter in tow.

Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment.:

Three Fugitives
Funnyman Martin Short (INNERSPACE) plays an inept, klutzy bank robber who, on his first heist, grabs Nick Nolte (DOWN AND OUT IN BEVERLY HILLS, 48 HRS.) as a hostage. Nolte plays a notorious ex-con who is trying to go sraight, 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 laughers with miles of slapstick humor and nonstop adventure in this box office winner!

Plot Synopsis:

Remake of a sentimental French comedy about an ex-burglar named Lucas who unwittingly stumbles into a bank robbery the very day he's released from prison. The incompetent bank robber who masterminded the crime takes Lucas hostage, then forces Lucas to help him and his little girl escape to Mexico. Once again, Lucas finds himself on the wrong side of the law, as he tries to elude the police who naturally assume he was in on the job.
