    Derivative and blindingly dull, Quick Change is an occasion for a quick nap. show more

    What's surprising about Quick Change, particularly in light of his more recent mega-budget efforts, is its witty affability. [15 Jul 1990, p.34] show more

    Don't look for any belly laughs, but Quick Change will help you put on a happy face. [13 Jul 1990, p. 4D] show more

    Julie Salamon Wall Street Journal

    Mr. Murray and his co-director, Howard Franklin, who adapted Jay Cronley's novel for the screen, succeed mainly in illuminating what made them want to direct the material. At least this picture struggles to emit a few gasps of fresh air as it goes down. [19 Jul 1990, p.A8] show more

    Rick Groen The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    Delightfully inventive, consistently funny, clever but not slick, brisk yet never antic, Quick Change is the perfect cinematic date - a summer film for all seasons, the kind of sharp-edged picture that gives lightweight a good name. [14 Jul 1990, p.C3] show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Quick Change is a funny but not an inspired comedy. It has two directors - Howard Franklin and Bill Murray - and I wonder if that has anything to do with its inability to be more than just efficiently entertaining. show more

    It's a particularly great pleasure to encounter Quick Change, a wonderfully loose and graceful character comedy. [13 Jul 990, p.C] show more

    Quick Change unfolds cleverly, keeping the audience in the dark on the robbery plot throughout the film's opening reel. show more

    Jay Carr Boston Globe

    As a performer, Murray moves through the film with a lovely doomed aplomb. And his quick verbal wit is almost enough to pull Quick Change off. But as a director, his inexperience costs him. His camera isn't as quick as his tongue. [13 Jul 1990, p.29] show more
