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

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

Definitely one of Clint Eastwood's worst films, but nowhere near as bad as any of the b movie stuff he was involved during his Rawhide years.
Basically, it's a rip off to Midnight Run, you see Clint playing the De Niro part and it's interesting seeing him try out a more comedic performance than usual, that is probably the highlight of the film.
This is just a few years before he went on to make Unforgiven.

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.

A different kind of Clint Eastwood film, very cheesy.

One Of Clint's Real Stinkers, That Turns Out Not Bad. For His Third Film As A Director & His Third Film Directing Eastwod, Stunt-Man Buddy Van Horn Helmed This Action Comedy Involving A Skip Tracer, Some Neo-Nazis & The Titular Vehicle. Eastwood Stars As Novak, A Bounty Hunter With A Knack For Catching Bail-Skippers With A Wide Variety Of Disguises & Characters. After Catching A Young Woman (Bernadette Peters), Novak Finds Himself Between The Woman's Good For Nothing Husband & His White Supremacist Cohorts, & The Load Of Cash Stashed In The Back Of Her Pink Cadillac. The Film Lacks In Script & Performance But The Script Is Laughable Which Makes This Somewhat Enjoyable.

Not one of Clint Eastwood's best but he does provide some good laughs in this film. The on screen chemistry of Clint and Bernadette Peters is fun to watch as well.

i didn't see ALL of it, but what I saw wasn't up there with Clint Eastwood's best. But, my mom loved it... so I guess it was good 22 years ago, but nowhere near as good as anything that has come out recently.

After critical acclaim for Bird (1988) and bringing Dirty Harry to a close with The Dead Pool (1988), Clint Eastwood opted for this light-hearted romp, which actually comes across as Eastwood's weakest film. It's tonally all wrong, and it should have been more hardass and serious, like the Dirty Harry films. Eastwood is Tommy Nowak, "a skip-tracer" who works for bail bondsmen, looking for convicted felons who have slipped the noose, and broke bail, he goes out with an array of disguises to bring them to justice. His latest case is that of Lou Ann McGuinn (Bernadette Peters), who took the rap for her husband Roy (Timothy Carhart) who is in cahoots with a group of neo-Nazi's. She ends up on the run with her baby daughter in Roy's Pink Cadillac, which has in the boot a huge stash of fake money. Tommy is on her tail, but once he catches up with her, he soon leans the full story of what's going on, so Tommy partners up with Lou Ann to get even with Roy and the Neo-Nazi's, who are chasing the Pink Cadillac for their money back. It's a film which promises alot, but comes up short big time, the comedy doesn't work, and the action is half baked, and Eastwood and Peters don't work together. Thankfully, Eastwood stayed away from comedy, until Space Cowboys (2000).
