Reviews
Mine: Great fun. Quite strange. Unique. Wonderfully written.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Formidably flaky comedy about an odd couple (chronic convenience-store robber Cage and former law-enforcement officer Hunter) who decide to kidnap one of a set of quintuplets, since they can't have a child of their own. Aggressively wacked-out sense of humor may not be for all tastes, but if you're attuned to it, it's a scream--a heady mix of irony and slapstick. Look out for those chase scenes! Written by Ethan and Joel Coen; spry cinematography by Barry Sonnenfeld and music by Carter Burwell.
