Pink Cadillac is a 1989 action-comedy film about Clint Eastwood bounty hunter, and a group of bad white supremacists , chasing after an innocent woman, who tries to outrun everyone in her husband's prized pink Cadillac. The film also has a small cameo appearance by Jim Carrey and Bryan Adams.

Plot

A white supremacist group is chasing Lou Ann (Bernadette Peters), whose husband is a member, because she has inadvertently taken counterfeit money from them by stealing his car (the pink Cadillac), which held the supremacists stash. Tommy Nowak (Clint Eastwood) is a "skip-tracer", whose speciality is dressing up in outlandish outfits and disguises to fool the person(-s) he is after. Tommy takes on the job of finding Lou Ann because she skipped bail, but when he finds her, Tommy slowly becomes enamored. He decides to help her get out of her troubles with her no-good ex-husband Roy (Timothy Carhart), instead of turning her in. While driving around the country, they visit Renomarker and other places in the West, and romance blossoms, while they also have to fight the evil supremacists.

Responses

The film received generally poor reviews. Caryn James wrote: "When it's time to look back on the strange sweep of Clint Eastwood's career, from his ambitious direction of Bird to his coarse, classic Dirty Harry character, Pink Cadillac will probably settle comfortably near the bottom of the list. It is the laziest sort of action comedy, with lumbering chase scenes, a dull-witted script and the charmless pairing of Mr. Eastwood and Bernadette Peters." (New York Times, May 26, 1989.)

Hal Hinson praised the performers: Peters "...plays her comic scenes with a vivacious abandon..." She "loosens him [Eastwood] up... and humanizes him. These two make a nifty comic team." (Washington Post, May 26, 1989.)

Pink Cadillac grossed $12,143,484. In contrast, the movie Eastwood made just prior to Pink Cadillac, the fifth Dirty Harry movie, The Dead Pool, grossed $37,903,295. box office mojo
