Bill Murray co-directed (along with Howard Franklin) this mixture of The Out-of-Towners and After Hours, concerning Grimm (Bill Murray), a frustrated city planner who is fed up with the corruption and venality of New York City. Getting together a couple of accomplices -- Phyllis (Geena Davis), who admires Grimm for his audacity, and Loomis (Randy Quaid), a follower to Grimm's leader since grade school -- Grimm decides to rob a bank, pocket the money, get out of town and take off to tropical splendor. Dressing in a clown suit, Grimm devises a unique way to rob a bank -- taking a group of hostages at the bank and inviting the police to surround the bank. Amazingly, although pursued by a police chief (Jason Robards), the trio manage to pull off the robbery. However, the problems really start when they try to get from the bank to the airport -- which proves to be more difficult than the robbery. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi
It took many years for this to come to DVD but it finaly did. This is a classic comedy if you are one who thinks that New York isn't the greatest city in the world. Rent it, you'll be surprised at the witty script and fast pace comedy.
One of the best funny films around. I could rewatch this every time and still gets funnier. Loved it as a teenager and love it now as an adult. One of the best perfomances by Randy Quaid ever is in this film. The Laughter in this film is the best medicine ever.
Quick Change is an intriguing movie especially because of all the good actors who participate in it. The story is too bizarre to be believed, but everyone carrys it off well enough that it is very entertaining. It seems like a showcase for all the talented people in it.
Excellent comedy. Fans of Bill Murray have to see this movie as he is at his best here. It's set in NYC and the City becomes a "character" in the story as its many aspects play a role in the plot. Geena Davis and Randy Quaid are excellent as Murray's partners in crime. All in all it's a fun time for someone who doesn't take life too seriously and is looking to laugh at the crazy situations people can get into.
