Bill Murray dresses up as a clown to take hostages and rob a New York bank. Funny? Guess again.

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.

[Murray's] glancing, genial sarcasm buoys the action for the first half-hour. Then this caper comedy sinks into a puddle of urban rancor.

At least something works often enough that the movie announces Bill Murray is back and is funny again.

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.

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.

Inventively sinister, endlessly hilarious dark comedy.

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

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

Despite the fact that Change lags and lopes along toward an inevitable, trite conclusion, it also leaves itself wide open for funny moments.

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