TV director David Steinberg (Mad About You, Seinfeld) helmed this Canadian comedy satirizing The Fugitive and similar actioners. Cleveland corporate climber Nelson Hibbert (Dave Foley) is confident his promotion to company prez is just around the corner, but when it doesn't happen, he goes postal during a meeting, aiming threats at the boss who passed him over. Later, he barges into the boss' office, finds him dead, and runs from the office holding the bloody weapon. Since this was witnessed by his co-workers, he thinks they have accused him as the killer. Unaware surveillance cameras revealed the real killer, Hibbert hightails it for Mexico, certain that he's a most-wanted fugitive. Made in Toronto in 1996, this film expands on a sketch Foley scripted for Kids in the Hall.

This is without a doubt the funniest movie I have seen in the last year, possibly in my whole life. The comedy ranges from the obvious to the subtle and is laugh out loud all the way through. I love Dave Foley, not just because he's a hunk but because he's a comedic genius. This movie didn't get it's fair share of attention when it first came out; it's time to rectify that mistake. Buy this movie; you won't be sorry!

My spouse and I laughed out loud during the entire film. It is without doubt one of the very funniest films I have ever seen. I had never heard of it but rented it because of Dave Foley. He really needs to do more film. He plays the quintessential wrong guy in the wrong place at the wrong time. He thinks he will be accused of a murder which everyone, thanks to closed circuit t.v., already knows he didn't commit. He goes on the lam with hilarious consequences. Do yourself a favor and get it. If you don't laugh yourself silly, you have a major problem. Get help.
