Trivia

Bill Murray once said of this movie in an interview: "Everyone will enjoy this movie. But New Yorkers will enjoy it especially because they know how bad their city really is." In another later August 2010 interview with Dan Fierman of GQ Magazine, Murray said: "It's great. It's a great piece of writing. And how about the cast? You couldn't get that cast together for all the tea in China right now. I mean, Stanley Tucci, Tony Shalhoub...". See more »

Goofs

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 »

A brilliant comedy in 80s style
12 December 2002 | by hackett-3See all my reviews

Bill Murray is a great actor, his interpretations in movies which "Ghostbuster" or "Scrooges" are memorable. Quick Change represents his first and unique directional proof with the coo-direction of Howard Franklyn. The movie remembers the demential comedy of late 70s and middle 80s and even the picaresque genre consacrated by Martin Scorsese in "After hours" or John Landis in "Into the night". The special confluence of this two genres creates comic effects in chain reaction. The scenes with the taxi driver and the mobster are very hilarious and Geena Davis confirmed her special comic talent, while Randy Quaid is very funny in the role of the good-dumb. But the very director of the scene is Bill Murray, the movie is constructed for his particular way of acting. He is one of the American actors who knows very well Buster's Keaton lesson: make laugh without laughing. His comic style is a little bit more surrealistic and absurd of the one of the master, but Bill Murray his an actor of our times and the comparisons are always not possible. The only defect of this movie, and it's not a little thing, is to resemble to the story of many other movie. It's all so predictable that the only stuff we see is the speeches: it could be a programmed decision but in the long run it can also bore.
