Pink Cadillac is a 1989 American action-comedy film directed by Buddy Van Horn and starring Clint Eastwood, Bernadette Peters, and Timothy Carhart. The movie follows Tommy Nowak, a skip tracer who tracks down wanted people and brings them to justice. This time, he's tasked with finding and bringing back a woman named Lou Ann McGuinn, who has recently bailed out her husband Roy McGuinn out of jail.

As Nowak begins his search, he finds out that Lou Ann, played by Bernadette Peters, is not your typical on-the-run criminal. She's a mother of a baby boy, and her husband Roy has been thrown in jail for breaking parole conditions. Lou Ann's crime is that she used a fake check to bail her husband out of jail, hoping that they could start a new life together. However, her plan backfires when Roy turns out to be a violent abuser who wants to take her son away from her.

As Tommy helps Lou Ann escape from Roy's clutches, the two of them embark on a wild adventure across the country. Their main goal is to deliver a pink Cadillac, which Lou Ann won in a poker game, to California. However, they soon discover that the Cadillac belongs to a notorious gangster who will stop at nothing to get it back.

As they try to evade the gangster, they encounter a number of crazy and colorful characters, including a group of Elvis impersonators, a cowboy, and a group of Native Americans. Along the way, Tommy and Lou Ann find themselves falling for each other, despite their differences.

What follows is a hilarious and action-packed road trip filled with car chases, shootouts, and plenty of laughs. The movie showcases the quirky chemistry between Eastwood and Peters, who deliver some great comedic performances. Peters shines as Lou Ann, a spunky and fearless woman who is not afraid to stand up for herself and her child. Eastwood, on the other hand, delivers his trademark snarky one-liners and tough-guy persona.

The movie also has some great music, with classic rock and roll hits from Elvis Presley and Chuck Berry. The standout scene is the one where Peters performs a rousing rendition of "Trouble" from the musical "The Music Man" in front of a group of baffled gangsters.

Overall, Pink Cadillac is a fun and entertaining movie that showcases Eastwood's versatility as an actor. It's not your typical shoot-em-up action movie, but rather a lighthearted and charming comedy that will make you laugh out loud. If you're in the mood for an offbeat and quirky movie, give Pink Cadillac a try.

Pink Cadillac is a 1989 action movie with a runtime of 2 hours and 2 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.3 and a MetaScore of 47.
