Bottle Rocket

Lists: Adventure, Comedy, Drama, Crime / Heist

Brief Synopsis: "Upon his release from a mental hospital following a nervous breakdown, the directionless Anthony joins his friend Dignan, who seems far less sane than the former. Dignan has hatched a hair-brained scheme for an as-yet-unspecified crime spree that somehow involves his former boss, the (supposedly) legendary Mr. Henry."

Chris Turner80 - Not perfect, but easily Andersons second best after Moonshine Kingdom
FTS Nick R80 - Superbly witty and remarkably humorous, the screenplay is fantastic and is give its due and proper with such an outstanding cast that includes Owen Wilson, Luke Wilson, Robert Musgrave, Kumar Pallana, and James Caan. I donít know what took me so long to sit down and watch this movie but Iím disappointed that I didnít do it sooner.

Bryan Lienesch50 - It's not quarky so much as idiosyncratic. There's odd-funny and then there's just odd, and 'Bottle Rocket' is definitely the latter.
