Forgotten Gem: Quick Change (1990)

Question: Why has the all encompassing God known as Bill Murray never directed anything other than this horrendously underrated comedy? Because the world is full of idiots and they didn't see how bloody great it is. So, who wants to see a trailer?


Alongside King Bill is Forgotten Gem veteran Geena Davis and Randy "I've lost my fucking mind" Quaid as an unlikely bank robbing threesome. The entire film revolves around them trying to get to the airport with their stolen loot and encountering a bevvy of typically mental randoms. At the time of release critics with half a braincell said that this is probably Murray's finest film and I have to agree. Sure, he's playing another sarcastic curmudgeon (called 'Grimm' no less) but he does it so fucking well you'd have to be a moron to not rate it. However, it would seem that a lot of people were as when this bombed it put Bill off from ever directing again. I hope you're proud of yourselves. Idiots.
