Pink Cadillac Reviews

  • Dec 10, 2018

    Eastwood plays Tommy Nowak, a skip tracer in this movie. This is a person who works for a bail bondsman in order to track down folks who ran away to avoid prosecution...thus leaving the bondsman with a huge debt. He's really good at what he does and is very clever in order to catch these people...which is why what he does with Lu Ann McGuinn (Bernadette Peters) makes very little sense. In her case, for once, her tears and request for his help after she's captured makes little sense--especially since she is on the run from the law AND already lied to him and escaped from him already. However, the pair go off on an adventure to see her baby before she is turned in...and along the way the sleaze-bag husband and his Neo-Nazi friends show up and Nowak must contend with them. This is one of Clnt's rare misfires and one of the reasons critics do not consider his 80s output on par with earlier or after work that he did.

    Quite average but as usual, Clint Eastwood is the kicker.

    Pink Cadillac is a disappointing film. It is about Tommy Nowak who is tracking Lou Ann McGuinn for a bail bondsman in California. Clint Eastwood and Bernadette Peters give horrible performances. The script is badly written. Buddy Van Horn did a terrible job directing this movie. I was not impressed with this motion picture.

    I'm just a delivery boy. Tommy Nowak is a bounty hunter of sorts that tracks down individuals that skip bail and turn them in for rewards. He is given a case that requires him to bring back a single mom that is standing trial in place of her deadbeat boyfriend and his friends on counterfeit money charges. Tommy may have a soft heart and tries to help her out. "I don't feel the fear of God is nearly good enough." Buddy Van Horn, director of Any Which Way you Can and Dead Pool, delivers Pink Cadillac. The storyline for this picture is pretty average and just okay but the characters are interesting. The acting was very good and the cast includes Clint Eastwood, Bernadette Peters, Bill Moseley, Geoffrey Lewis, and William Hickey. "He's so good he has to die." Pink Cadillac is a movie I came across on HBOGO and wanted to watch again for the first time in a long time. This was always just okay to me. I enjoy the feel of the film and the characters and the awkward situations they find themselves in. This is a fun movie to watch but nothing special overall. "Some scenes too intense for younger viewers." Grade: C

    One of Eastwood's worst movies and the damn thing wouldn't end.

    Clint Eastwood as a bounty hunter being chased by Nazis in this farfetched comedy.

    Clint Eastwood is brilliant but this is not one of his better films. An early role for Jim Carrey even though he is only on screen for 30 secs and his name in the credits is James Carrey.

    Definitely not one of Eastwood's best but still entertaining but only half as good as most of his great films. Watchable but still ok along with Clint's stories getting wackier and wackier.

    Not a great movie by any means, but it had some funny scenes. It's amusing how Clint's character Tommy Nowak can totally out smart 100s of rednecks with machine guns.
