Frequently Bought Together
"Two hours of crowd-pleasing entertainment!" > > > > > Jump bail, and skip-tracer Tommy Nowak (Clint Eastwood) will nail you before the ink on your fake ID dries. He always gets his man. But will he also get his woman (Bernadette Peters) - especially one with an infant in her arms, a quarter-million in the trunk of a stolen '59 Caddy, and gun-toting goons on her trail? In Eastwood's wily hands, Nowak is a master of disguise who becomes a radio DJ, a rodeo clown and a Vegas-style huckster to nail his target. As Nowak's frisky target Lou-Ann, Peters easily nabs her leading man's heart. Supporting players Geoffrey Lewis, William Hickey and future superstar Jim Carey (briefly seen as a Reno lounge entertainer) also help make this action comedy vehicle a sure-handler.

The film turned out even worse for Reynolds than it did for Edwards. Despite his penchant for period films (At Long Last Love, Nickelodeon, Lucky Lady), Reynolds never had much luck with them, and this was probably the unluckiest of them all: it may have done okay at the box-office but an accident in a fight sequence left him with a broken jaw and serious weight loss that led to rumors he was dying of AIDS that did his already failing career no favors. (Eastwood didn't come away entirely unscathed by the tabloids either: with the stars referring to each other as Stan and Ollie, this is probably where those bizarre rumors about him being Stan Laurel's lovechild began!)

Eastwood and Peters make an entertaining duo however, with Peters really playing her bubbly, strong-willed and sexy feminine lead for all she’s worth. Couple that with Eastwood’s usual no-nonsense man with a job to do and they work well together and make a convincing pair who gradually falls for each other.
It’s nothing too exciting, but the story is there and it’s entertaining enough for all the right reasons with nothing too overtly violent, gratuitous or crass. The Cadillac itself is a worthy and attractive co-star too.
Two stand out moments for me that garner a star must be the blink and you’ll miss it cameo from Jim Carry as a Reno entertainer playing a phocomelic Elvis Presley and one of Eastwood’s opening lines delivered in one of his many disguises during the film to locate fugitives. Playing an excited Southern state radio DJ delivering a prize winning phone call to a suspect, he simply throws out the line; “We’ve got a surprise for you just about as big as Barry Manilow’s beak!”
You have to see it and hear it for full appreciation of both.
A more restrained Peters than we're used to gives better than she gets from the script, but Clint is clearly having a whale of a time with a part that enables him to show a lot more range and extrovert good-humoured charm than much of the rest of his career put together. That said, some of his disguises are a bit hard to take - especially when he dons shades, spats, gold lame suit and Charlie Parker jive - although he does make a worryingly convincing inbred Southern gumby at one point. With the Malpaso stock company represented by Geoffrey Lewis (as a spaced-out hippy that really should have been played by Dennis Hopper), Bill McKinney and Mara Corday and with bit parts from Jim Carrey as a casino entertainer and James Cromwell as a none-too-bright desk clerk, this is clearly one for the money rather than one from the heart.Read more ›
