In several different scenes vehicles are shown being parked and left in the alleys between the casinos in Reno, Nevada. Due the chances for robbery as well blocking the egress and exit of emergency vehicles, this has not been allowed in many decades. In fact, one of the fastest ways to get your vehicle towed in the city would be to park in an alley and leave it. See more »

Like most people I guess, I'd never heard of this movie (it not getting a theatrical release in the UK). But I like Clint so when it came around on late-night TV...
The leads are excellent, the script is witty, but the direction plods. The first third is so slow it almost had me reaching for the off switch. (A Pink Cadillac that runs on Valium, is no fun ride, me thinks.) Still I hung on in there and am not disappointed that I did.
Eastwood's attempt at playing "characters" was vaguely cringe-worthy. Let's face it, his best role is playing Clint Eastwood. Even so, he still has enough charm to get away with trying. Bernadette Peters adds subtlety, humor and integrity to her role. The film is well made. It hangs together. It was just never worth a special trip to the cinema. But fine on DVD or video with wine and a pizza.
