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 »
All we've got going for us is the city. Our only hope is they're mired down in the same shit that you and I have to wade through every day.

Consistently funny for the most part, although the end sort of drags along...
Funny remake starring Bill Murray, Geena Davis and Randy Quaid as down-on-their-luck thieves who rob a bank and then have a hard time getting out of NYC. Funny from beginning to end. Well, almost. The last twenty minutes or so seem to drag a bit. But I loved the first 3/4, and the opening sequence is tremendous!
Bill Murray is very funny and Randy Quaid is a likable goofball. Geena Davis manages to impress but the real star is Murray, as always. All in all a pleasant way to spend an evening and certainly a memorable comedy--if a slightly uneven one.
