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.

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.

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.

Neither ambitious nor particularly memorable, but it's brought off with a sly flair that makes it most enjoyable.

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.

Not likely to set the world alight, but a neat and engaging little comedy of bad manners.

Amusing comedy with a great, subdued performance by Murray. Runs out of steam too soon, though.

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.
