Unappreciated Gem of a Comedy
Bill Murray stars as a bank robber with a unique plan – he’ll rob the bank dressed as a clown, but carry out the money taped to his body – and those of his two accomplices – “hostages” who have been released as a sign of good faith as certain potential getaway vehicles (2 helicopters, a motorcycle, a city bus, and a monster truck) are provided. The plan works perfectly as the gang makes their escape from the bank in plain sight.
Then things go wrong.
The movie contrasts the perfect execution of a difficult task – robbing a bank, and then getting out and past the police, with the terrible execution of a simple task – getting to the airport in time to catch a flight. In both stages, Murray provides the kind of humor associated with him, taking nothing seriously even in the tightest of situations.
Jason Robbards provides an excellent contrast, as a chief of police who refuses to be outwitted by a smart-mouthed bank robber in a clown suit, who escaped from right under his nose.
Good Mix Of Clever and Silly Comedy
This is a clever and entertaining comedy that has some dramatic and romantic touches as well. It’s almost two movies-in-one: a dramatic holdup and a comic getaway. The holdup scene does has comedy but is more dramatic. It reminded me of the ’70s classic “Dog Day Afternoon” in which the hostages are kept by a couple of robbers and the crooks demand the normal assortment of getaway vehicles. Except in here, ringleader Bill Murray wants a “monster truck” along with everything else. You know with Murray you are going to get outrageous humor and satire.
Anyway, the bulk of the film concerns what happens after the trio – Murray, Randy Quaid and Geena Davis – after they successfully escape the holdup. The bottom line is that they just can’t get out of New York City. One disaster after another keeps happening, and it’s all kind funny (and frustrating!). The ending I won’t spoil.
Murray plays his normal wise-guy role and Quaid is good as the emotional slapstick-type buffoon. For some reason, the scene in which Quaid runs full-tilt into a newspaper stand and knocks himself out almost had me in tears laughing. Davis complements the two with her coolness and eye candy for the male audience. Veteran Jason Robards plays the chief detective on the case, and shows comedic touches of his own.
What also is fun to watch nowadays is Tony Shalhoub. When this film came out, hardly anyone knew him. Now he’s famous as “Monk” on the television series of the same name. In this film, he plays an Arabic cab driver and you have to see this performance to believe it! A couple of other familiar faces also show up in here, including Bob Elliot from the old radio duo of “Bob and Ray.”
There is no sex, no bloodshed, just a lot of jokes but the “R” rating ought to tell you something about the language in here. The jokes and story were good enough on their own and didn’t need all the profanity.
