Quick Change (1990)
« on: December 28, 2012, 03:36:55 pm »

Quick Change is a very underrated film and one that I never hear talked about at all when discussion of Bill Murray comes up. I don't even know if most people on the planet know this even exist given the lack of conversations about it. Anyway, I find myself watching this one every other year or so for two reasons: Bill Murray and Randy Quaid. Of course Murray gets all the headlines (when people actually talk about this one), but for me it's Quaid that steals the movie with his character Loomis who is at wits end and just wants to get out of town. What's funny is that we are lead to believe that Loomis 'whiny' personae that starts the movie off in the bank is just part of the act. It's not till we see him outside of the bank that he is always like that.

Quick Change starts off as a 'Heist' flick, which takes up the first 20 minutes of the film. From here on out the film shifts gears and becomes an 'Escape' film with the gang, including Geena Davis just trying to get out of the city. But first they have to get to the Airport. It's the crazy unforeseen obstacles that keep them constantly within arms reach of Johnny Law that gives the movie its humor. Jason Robards also stars as the Fed in hot pursuit,

I highly recommend this as a Rent. For me, I own this gem on DVD.

Unavailable.  Or "saved" as they call it.  Not enough demand to restock.
