Director/Writer:Pat Proft
Warner Bros.; PG?13; 89 minutes
Cast:Leslie Nielsen, Richard Crenna, Kelly Le Brock, Sandra Bernhard, Michael York and Melinda McGraw

One would think that after the critical and commercial bombs Dracula: Dead and Loving It and Mr. Magoo, Nielsen would steer clear of spoofs that attempt to capitalize on his one-note comic shtick. He didn't, and viewers should avoid Wrongfully Accused. Nielsen's Ryan Harrison, ?Lord of the Violin,? has been wrongfully accused of murdering the husband of a wealthy seductress (LeBrock). He hits the road after a The Fugitive-inspired crash, with a U.S. Marshall (Crenna) on his tail. The film includes insipid takeoffs of Titanic, Field of Dreams and North by Northwest.
