And you thought YOU had a tough time getting out of town ...
on July 6, 2010
Quick Change is a terrific Bill Murray/Geena Davis/Randy Quaid film that not too many people remember, but I am constantly recommending it to friends and acquaintances. Now that we have it on DVD, I've been able to show it to my kids, too and it made for a fun family film night.
The premise is that the trio (Murray, Davis and Quaid) are New York City bank robbers who pull off a clever heist in the first 20 minutes of the film and then spend the rest of the time trying desperately to get to Kennedy Airport to catch their flight to Fiji ... except that they come up against the vagaries of the city itself that seems to be determined to foil their plan.
For my kids, who love "The Amazing Race", this was like an extended edition of that show - but where everything goes wrong!
To say any more would give away too many of the fun surprises, but if you're looking for a funny caper film give Quick Change a viewing. You'll laugh as you root for the bank robbers to make their getaway!
