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.
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". This movie was made and released 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 first enters the bank he tells everyone not to move. Then he charges towards a woman with a dog saying "What did I just say?". As he was walking, the dog owner was "hugging" the dog around the neck and no collar or tags could be seen. Immediately after that she is just holding the dog with the collar and tags resting on her hand. See more »
If I can sleep ten days and nights in a rice patty, I can certainly last in this lousy bank!

I've seen this movie a few times, and I always get some good laughs out of it. It's not a genuinely hilarious comedy, yet it earns its laughs honestly, unlike most of the silly fluff that comes out recently. Bill Murray is in top form. Randy Quaid steals some scenes, and Geena Davis and Jason Robards top off a fine supporting cast. I liked the way the movie poked fun at New York City, being that 90 percent of the bystanders in each scene are complete wackos. Don't get me wrong, New York is a great city, but anyone who has lived in or spent a lot of time in NYC should have a good time with the little inside gags. I loved the theme song, and the little surprise at the end was pretty nifty. If you want good, solid comedy that you can laugh with, rather than at, "Quick Change" is the film for you.
My score: 7 (out of 10)
