Bad movie that was saved by Eastwood, 13 February 2002
Author: Mika Pykäläaho ( from Järvenpää, Finland

As much as I would like to, I simply can't say "Pink Cadillac" is a good movie but I got to add that it's not a completely vain or useless one either. Plot is flimsy and incoherent and practically about 90% of the whole motion picture is more or less nonsense but if it entertains someone, what's the big problem? It should be enough. I have to admit I liked "Pink Cadillac" only because of my huge Clint Eastwood fanatism. Without him on the leading role movie would have been a very trivial experience for me. But although I love Eastwood's tough, violent and ruthless hard-ass characters with killer one-liners it's pretty pleasant to see him in an amiable, easy-going role in a genial, yet very stupid movie. Jim Carrey's uncredited appearance as a comedian who imitates Elvis is also worth checking out even though it's a very short one. You'll find the longer version in "Man on the moon". Amusing and very watchable "Pink Cadillac" is a film for people who just don't expect miracles every time they watch movies and naturally for hardcore Eastwood fans like myself who really don't care if the film isn't perfect as long as the man is on the screen. He has made movie history with so many astonishing films. I think we can approve couple of flicks that aren't part of it, can't we?
