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 is actually not the first but the second filmed adaptation of Jay Cronley's source comic-novel "Quick Change". The movie was made and released about five years after the first, Hold-Up (1985), starring Jean-Paul Belmondo and Kim Cattrall, which had first debuted in 1985. Geena Davis played the Cattrall part in this movie. See more »
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 »
Many of the comments here are too enthusiastic, and some are far too critical. But a small group hit the nail on the head: this a very good film that is definitely worth watching. The highlight of the movie is the beginning, there is no doubt about that, but the rest is still good. While the relationships between the characters may seem "awkward" to some, they come off as very human, and not contrived. Human beings are awkward. The ending on the other hand, is a little contrived, and goes a little far in terms of just how much the viewer will believe. But it's not a bad ending and as another comment said, it is very exciting.
Very good script and very good acting. Funny, clever, exciting. I gave Quick Change an 8 out of 10, and I was even tempted to boost it to a 9.
