A funny, quirky and engaging very NYC dark comedy.

July 15, 2016
Plenty of '80s comedies would've just ridden the clown-robbing-a-bank premise for 90 minutes. Instead, 'Quick Change' tosses off its twist twenty minutes in, discovering that the real achievement is not knocking off a bank, but getting out of New York.

Smarter, even more literate, than it needs to be.

July 16, 2010
Easily a top-five career highlight for Bill Murray, Quick Change is a comedy jewel, squeezing a rare amount of mileage out of its fickle star, who appears atypically invested in the picture's mechanics.

October 18, 2008
The movie has a comfy, lived-in feel; it doesn't beat you over the head for laughs, or take its horrors-of-New York theme too seriously. Smile and enjoy.

[Murray's] glancing, genial sarcasm buoys the action for the first half-hour. Then this caper comedy sinks into a puddle of urban rancor.
October 5, 2008
After piquing our curiosity, Murray and Franklin skillfully let us in on the scheme and slowly reveal the nature of the three characters at the center of it.

October 5, 2008
Neither ambitious nor particularly memorable, but it's brought off with a sly flair that makes it most enjoyable.
October 5, 2008
From the opening scenes with Murray dressed as a clown for the robbery and playing his cynical, wise-cracking card to great effect, to the trio pitting themselves against the whims of New York City, this is breathtaking and inventive stuff.
December 21, 2006
Funny fluff featuring clowns, a bank robbery, and Bill Murray.
| Original Score: 3/5
June 24, 2006
Not likely to set the world alight, but a neat and engaging little comedy of bad manners.
February 23, 2006
Inventively sinister, endlessly hilarious dark comedy.
August 30, 2004
There is not much in Quick Change that hasn't been anticipated by Neil Simon and beaten to death by countless imitators. Mr. Murray's film is at the worn-out end of this bloodline.
March 20, 2003
Amusing comedy with a great, subdued performance by Murray. Runs out of steam too soon, though.
| Original Score: 3/5
May 12, 2001
Bill Murray dresses up as a clown to take hostages and rob a New York bank. Funny? Guess again.
January 1, 2000
At least something works often enough that the movie announces Bill Murray is back and is funny again.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
January 1, 2000
Despite the fact that Change lags and lopes along toward an inevitable, trite conclusion, it also leaves itself wide open for funny moments.
January 1, 2000
A randomly, raggedly funny look at the personal cost of being one with the hustling, clamorous crowd.
January 1, 2000
A delightful romp that generously allows the unknowns who dot the large supporting cast to garner the biggest laughs.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
January 1, 2000
By blurring the foreground characters and focusing on the background, New York City becomes the real main character of the film until the script falters near the end and Murray once again reclaims the audience's attention.
