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 Sami Al-Taher <staher2000@yahoo.com>

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.
