Critic Reviews for Pink Cadillac

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (5)

As a deeply personal work about free-floating existential identities, this 1989 film has the kind of grit and feeling that few action comedies can muster, with Eastwood and Peters interesting and unpredictable throughout.

Chicago Reader
Top Critic

It is the laziest sort of action comedy, with lumbering chase scenes, a dull-witted script and the charmless pairing of Mr. Eastwood and Bernadette Peters.

New York Times
Top Critic

An overlong, undercooked action comedy made out of retooled parts from other film vehicles.

May 12, 2001
Rolling Stone
Top Critic

There's little that's new in the material, and nobody seems to have asked whether the emotional charge of blatant racism belongs in a lightweight story like this -- even if the racists are the villains.

Chicago Sun-Times
Top Critic

It's weightlessly, irredeemably enjoyable.

Washington Post
Top Critic

While the script stumbles beyond a comforting sense of reality (white supremacists?), Pink Cadillac maintains a certain hospitable, emphatically dim-witted appeal.

Audience Reviews for Pink Cadillac


I have no idea why people hate this movie, it's such a classic. Clint Eastwood gives his most zany performance of his career, being a costume wearing identity changer/bounty hunter. Forget just regular villains, this has a band of Neo-Nazis as the only thing standing in Clint Eastwood's way. In the end though, not even they really stood a chance. This has a great combination of comedy, action and a little bit of romance thrown in. It has so many great moments and is impossible to pass up if you're a fan.

Clint Eastwood's cool as a master of disguise to nail his target.
