When Grimm the Clown enters the bank doors with the security guard, he lets go of the balloons which float behind him. He then opens his jacket, revealing the dynamite strapped to his body. Immediately after, the balloons are shown tied to his wrist as he enters the bank's main area. There was no time allowed in that scene for him to re-tie the balloons to his wrist See more »


Phyllis: Honey, babe? You've got a gun - shoot them.
Grimm: I want to, but they're fur-bearing. I'd need some kind of permit, wouldn't I?
[to construction workers, sarcastically]
Grimm: You know, I want to thank you guys, you could've given us help, but you've given us so much more.
Street Sign Worker: [cheerfully] Hey, that's what we're here for, right?

Don't miss out on this hilarious movie!
14 May 2001 | by See all my reviews

This movie is really great. It's got a great cast, a very funny story, and some clever writing. But it's been so ignored; and I can't understand why! I never see it on TV, and it's not available on DVD; it's hardly ever mentioned anywhere! Every time I go buy DVDs, I look for this one, hoping that maybe this time it'll be there. It hasn't been so far, and it's always a let-down. It's a tremendously funny movie, which I'd love to have in my collection! And if you like to laugh, then you'd be doing yourself a favor to pick this one up! Especially if you're a fan of Murray or Quaid. But even if you're not, you couldn't watch this one and not laugh. As someone else commented, this is a shamefully "underrated gem."

So here's my plea to the people who decide such things: PUT QUICK CHANGE ON DVD!!! PLEASE! I WANT IT!
