He had everything and wanted nothing. He learned that he had nothing and wanted everything. He saved the world and then it shattered. The path to enlightenment is as sharp and narrow as a razor's edge.
Broad satire and buffoonery presented as a series of movie trailers. Among the titles and subjects are: "The Howard Huge Story", "Skate-boarders from Hell", "The Invasion of the Penis ... See full summary »
Royce D. Applegate,
When a man dressed as a clown enters a bank and tries to rob it, no one takes him seriously at start. But as this New Yorker pulls this daring robbery with the help of his friends, it looks like leaving the bank with all the stolen money is the easy part! All they have to do now is make it out of the city and to the airport. They have plenty of time, but its not that easy as they seem to get out of one problem only to fall into another. Will they make before the cops catch up with them? Written by

The movie's dedication during the closing credits state: "This film is dedicated to Helen Scott". Sheila Benson of the Los Angeles Times reported that "the film is dedicated to a longtime associate of François Truffaut, the late Helen Scott, who first brought the book to the filmmakers' attention" whilst website Moviestack has stated "Helen Scott was an independent film producer and was the one who introduced Bill Murray to the book for which the film was adapted from". Moreover, in the later Murray movie The Royal Tenenbaums (2001), the character of Margot Tenenbaum (Gwyneth Paltrow) has a secret studio / apartment that she keeps under the alias name of "Helen Scott".

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 »
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!
