During the era that this movie was made, the No. 1 big box-office star of time, Clint Eastwood, sports a pink car in this movie, a pink Cadillac. The No. 2 box-office star of the time, Burt Reynolds, who had starred with Eastwood in City Heat (1984), wears a pink Members Only jacket a few times in the movie Stick (1985), another picture from this same era.

In several different scenes vehicles are shown being parked and left in the alleys between the casinos in Reno, Nevada. Due the chances for robbery as well blocking the egress and exit of emergency vehicles, this has not been allowed in many decades. In fact, one of the fastest ways to get your vehicle towed in the city would be to park in an alley and leave it. See more »
Not a waste of time, but one of my least favourite Clint Eastwood films
I don't consider Pink Cadillac a terrible movie, just one I didn't care for. It is a well made movie, with a beautiful car, a good soundtrack, a few witty quips in the script, Clint Eastwood giving his all to the role and Bernadette Peters all bubbly and fun. On the other hand, I find the film rather dull, with a very sluggish first half, a mostly incoherent plot, characters that don't have much substance and you don't care much, some jokes that feel forced and lethargic direction.
Overall, Pink Cadillac was not as bad as I thought, but considering how much I respect Eastwood, both as an actor and a director and a large body of his films, it could have been better. 4/10 Bethany Cox
