Bill Murray, Geena Davis and Randy Quaid play New York's perfect criminals. They have the perfect bank robbery plan. It's perfectly executed. The only thing that gets in the way is the city in which they operate. The city that spawned these crooks, also spawned the madness (the same madness that frustrated Jack Lemmon and Sandy Dennis in THE OUT OF TOWNERS) that get in the way of their getaway. From the opening scene of Bill Murray in a clown costume, I knew I was in for a quirky film, but it was much more than that. This was a surprisingly funny movie that captures the essential oddities of the city. Philip Bosco plays a bus driver who would better be suited as a Marine drill sergeant at Parris Island, and he's just one of the eccentrics. I won't give anything else away. Just take my advice and give this underrated film a look.

"Quick Change" is Absolutely Hysterical. The 3 principle actors give the Performances of their Comedy Careers. Bill Murray also Co-directs, proving what a true cinema legend he is.
Bill Murray, Geena Davis and Randy Quaid star as 3 would-be Bank robbers who Succeed in their well-laid robbery plans, yet Fail in their plans for Escape. The Robbery is over in about 10 minutes of screen time, the rest of the film deals with their Futile Escape attempts from the Isle of Manhattan. Whatever could go wrong, does go wrong as they deal with Foreign Cab drivers, Slick Stick-up men, Gun wielding Couples, Malicious Mobsters and Determined Police.
Bill's Straight-faced Sarcastic comedy styling has Never been used to such full effect as they are here. The role suits him like James Bond suits Pierce Brosnan. Geena and Randy support him Wonderfully, as do Tony Shalhoub, Stanley Tucci, Jason Robards and Kurtwood Smith. The Writing and Directing are Snappy, Witty and Fast Paced.
"Quick Change" is Criminally Underrated. So many people I know have never heard of it, I show it to them and they Immediately Adore it. Everything in it works Perfectly and virtually Everyone should enjoy it.

I've been waiting for this movie to come out on DVD to ad to my collection. Again, if you like Bill Murray you'll like this movie. Also, Randy Quaid is hilarious. Murphys Law at it's best! Cracks me up just thinking about it!

This is a great little comedy with a great cast. Murray's performance is fantastic. Geena Davis Randy Quaid and the late great Jason Robards are all wonderful in their roles. Tony Shalhoub (Monk) is also great in his limited role as an immigrant cab driver.

Bill Murray once mentioned that it was one of his favorite films and I agree. Someone needs to get on the ball and give this film the primo DVD treatment that it deserves.

Without the mass appeal of "What about Bob?" or "Groundhog Day", this film is still very enjoyable and entertaining but perhaps is geared to the audience that is a bit more sophisticated than average. Not relying on silliness/slapstick or situation as it's engine, this movie starts out as if it is a serious "bank heist" action thriller and then quickly moves into the actual plot; three robbers lead by comedy superstar Murray have to "get out of Dodge".
Murray remains the cream of the crop of early SNL stars going on to screen and while others like Chase and Aykroyd play entertaining characters, they don't have the range that Murray does and this film is an example of that. Being both convincingly serious and downright funny at the same time is not easy to pull off. The rest of the cast is great and this movie was both well written and acted, a definite strong recommendation.

Bill Murray proves that he can direct as well, and a first rate supporting cast (including TV's Monk Tony Shalhoub and Kirkwood Smith from that 70's show). Jason Robards plays the policeman trying to catch Quade, Murry and Davis who have robbed a bank.

The bank job is inspired but every attempt to leave the town end in a comic riot. I won't say more since we don't want to give it away. It is inspired lunacy and very much worth your while.

It's always fun to introduce people to this movie. It doesn't take much, surprisingly few have seen it.
In a nutshell, a clown walks into a bank and robs it. It goes off without a hitch and he escapes with his two accomplices. All that's left is for them to make it to the airport and get out of the country. Sounds simple doesn't it?
I don't think anybody in the theater I saw this at was prepared for what followed. At the best of times, this movie is so hilarious you'll be doubled over in your seat. The "jousting" scene ranks as one of my favorite moments of screen comedy of all time. Yes, during the final arc of the film there are several flat scenes, but they're still pretty funny, and don't detract from the overall film.
See it for the wealth of abundance in it's details. Tony Shaloub's cab driver is burned into my brain. The music is upbeat, instantly recognizable. Jason Robards is unflappable. Watch the policeman pose for applause as he steps out of the monster truck. See a clown point a gun at a small dog.
Really, the best you can say about this movie is that it brings the funny. If you haven't seen it, go out and rectify the situation. And let's see a DVD! I'd love to hear some director's commentary on this.
