AFTER stealing the show from everyone except the ghosts in 1984's Ghostbusters, Bill Murray fancied his chances at directing. The result was Quick Change (Pearl, 9.30pm), a comedy which came out to mixed reviews in 1990. Quick Change also provided an early role for a tall, slightly gawky actress with red hair who surely didn't have what it takes to be a Hollywood star. Her name was Geena Davis. This is the kind of film that gets labelled by the spin doctors as a ''screwball'' comedy. What screwball means is that sometimes it is funny, but sometimes it is not. Murray plays Grimm, a malcontent who is fed up with New York City, its corruption, its ugliness and its chaos. He becomes obsessed with escape (don't we all?) and plans ''the most audaciously brilliant bank robbery in the annals of modern metropolitan crime''. He does so disguised as a clown, in red nose, baggy pants and floppy shoes. Along with him for the ride are his sexy girlfriend (Davis) and his dim-witted brother Loomis (Randy Quaid). The trio soon discover it is easier to take US$1 million from a bank than it is to get to the airport and on their flight to Fiji. Thus begins a frantic chase through the city, with Grimm and his cronies pursued by zealous police chief Jason Robards. There are some hilarious vignettes in Quick Change. Murray's eye for the ridiculous and his ear for an original one-liner are not wasted and the robbery is one of the most original you will see. New Yorkers will particularly appreciate the film's anti-New York sentiments. There is nothing Frank Sinatra about the city as seen in this film. Quick Change is based on the novel by Jay Cronley and was originally made into a film called Hold-Up in France in 1985, starring Jean-Paul Belmondo. IN The Seventh Sign (World, 9.30pm) a pregnant Demi Moore is convinced that the apocalypse is on the way. Six of the Biblical signs have presented themselves; rivers running with blood, icy deserts, a crimson moon and so on. A distraught Moore believes lodger Jurgen Prochnow is doing the devil's work and that he has chosen her as the instrument of the seventh sign. The synopsis says that The Seventh Sign takes you on an unforgettable odyssey to the edge of life and death. Film critic Leonard Maltin takes a more realistic view. He calls The Seventh Sign a ''supernatural grab bag'' and says its ''oh, come on'' quotient is extremely high. THE psychological thriller Shadow Play (World, 1.30am) is minor fare, rightly tucked away at a time few will be able to watch it. Dee Wallace Stone is a playwright who has been having trouble accepting the untimely demise of her fiance. REALISM comes in greater doses in NYPD Blue (Pearl, 8.30pm), the cop drama with soft porn thrown in, most of which is cut out by TVB for fear of offending our catholic sensibilities. Anyway, who wants real-life on prime-time television? There is enough of it on the news. Kelly (David Caruso) and Sipowitz (Lenny Franz) investigate the disappearance of a boy. Sipowitz's estranged son announces his engagement, Laura is the sole witness to a shooting and a man who claims to be a werewolf may hold the key to a grisly murder. THERE is more real life, but not as all of us know it, in Eye On Hong Kong (Pearl, 7.20pm). Willy Ng takes a stroll through the streets of Paris and meets photographer Pascale Systermans; Jade Chan looks at expensive French furniture; new reporter Joseph Henry visits Hong Kong's Coca-Cola museum and Oliver Tan attaches a riding hat to his hair gel to investigate two of the Royal Hong Kong Jockey Club's riding schools.
