A Coen classic!

"I tried to stand up and fly straight, but it wasn't easy with that sumbitch Reagan in the White House. I dunno. They say he's a decent man, so maybe his advisors are confused."

Raising Arizona is now considered a classic gem from currently-renowned filmmaking duo Joel and Ethan Coen. Now that the pair have achieved such success with their crowning jewels such as No Country for Old ... read more

How can you not love this movie? I mean, it's the Cohen Brothers, and they are genius, in my opinion.

This movie is quirky, incredibly funny and weird, and it has all the ingredients a Cohen movie should have, great cinematography, great filming and a ton of quirkiness. It just makes you feel warm inside. Nicholas Cage, I think, was superb, as well as Holly Hunter and all the other ch... read more

A good movie

Honestly, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should definitely check it again whenever I have the opportunity. The point is that I always had some rather mixed feelings about this flick (like most of the movies directed by the Coen brothers as a matter of fact). And, apparently, I’m not the only one feeling this way. Indeed, on one hand, it is nowadays regarded as a cult-clas... read more

" Coen Brothers' second, and still one of the goofiest. Nick Cage turns in a rare performance and Nathan Jr. turns in his best. "

" Raising Arizona might possibly be something of an acquired taste. I know that I deeply appreciated it more now than when I originally saw it. The wacky jokes, bizarre characters and quirky situations may not land well with everyone, but I found it to be very entertaining this time around. The chase sequence is a masterpiece when it comes to comedy and Holly Hunter is a darling. "

Movie Reviews (1001-1050) (50 movies items)

" Excellent combination of faces that could have been taken from a weird comic book strip. Nicolas Cage does one of his finer performances and an ex-boxer is shockingly good as a bounty hunter from hell getting some of the best scenes. To appreciate this film you really need to suspend your belief in order to accept not only that a female tough cop marries a multiple offender and an idiot but also decides to steal a baby out of own selfish reasons. I couldn't care less, but love this film. "
