* MentosFinger: Parodied. Ryan is looking for a way out of a bathroom while the police batter their way into the house, and eating a Mentos inspires him to yank the toilet off the wall and pull it over to the window to escape, complete with turning to the camera and giving a thumbs-up with his Mentos.
** If you've ever wanted to watch the scene with the actual Mentos commercial jingle played over it...[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ivlt0UrEw7k here it is]].

'''''Wrongfully Accused''''' is a 1998 Creator/LeslieNielsen spoof film written and directed by ZAZ[[note]](Zucker, Abrahams & Zucker)[[/note]] protégé Pat Proft. A rather brilliant example of the joke-a-minute (though really it's more like every 10 to 20 seconds) school of comedy.

The frame {{parody}} is built around the 1993 version of ''Film/TheFugitive'' centering on renowned concert violinist, Ryan Harrison (Leslie Nielsen) in pursuit of the one-armed, one-legged and one-eyed man who killed his lover's husband after being framed for the murder. Richard Crenna's delightful parody of Creator/TommyLeeJones' fast-talking federal marshal is probably the highlight of the movie, with many of the best lines.

* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: Exaggerated during the climax as Ryan is able to seat a truckload of people, wash the windows, change a van's tire and check its pressure at a normal pace all while being shot at a very close range by several terrorists.

* TheCameo: John Walsh, long time host of ''AmericasMostWanted'' (along with Maury Hannigan of ''Real Stories of the Highway Patrol''), appears in the film. Though it isn't clear if he's playing as the "America's Most Wanted" host as he is seen in a backwoods bait and tackle shop.
** The puppet Lambchop from ''LambchopsPlayAlong'' for no real reason other than it's [[RuleOfFunny supposed to be funny]]

* MarketBasedTitle: The film had several French-language titles, one of which was "Is there a fugitive on board?" to blend in with other French titles for Creator/LeslieNielsen movies.
** This is an odd exception in Spain, where almost all other Nielsen films (and a few other RapidFireComedy movies) famously end with the words "...as you can". Instead, this is just titled "What a fugitive".
** In Russia, the movie is literally known as ''WrongfullyAccused Creator/LeslieNielsen'', to make sure people don't confuse it with... well, ''TheFugitive''.
