Quick Change is a 1990 comedy about a group of unlikely bank robbers who must outsmart a police chief who is hot on their tail. Grimm (Bill Murray) is a disgruntled city worker who has devised the perfect plan to rob a bank. He is joined in the heist by his girlfriend, Phyllis (Geena Davis), and childhood friend, Loomis (Randy Quaid). Grimm's plan is to rob the bank and then take Phyllis and Loomis to live on a tropical island for the rest of their lives. Initially, the plan goes exactly as planned and the trio manages to escape the bank with millions of dollars. Things begin to go wrong, however, when Loomis makes a critical mistake that arouses the suspicion of the old police chief (Jason Robards). From there it is a race against time as the bank robbers try to get to the airport before the police chief catches up to them.
